Along with supporting our clients, our mission includes “Helping those who help others.” Keystone offers clinical supervision for both Virginia Residents in Counseling and Counseling Students (practicum and internship placements).
Clinical Supervision is offered to Virginia Residents in Counseling, and only begin to accrue once approved by the Board. Supervision is open to residents working at other practices/locations, but is prioritized to residents who work for Keystone. Group supervision is offered as group members are available. Session fees vary depending on a number of factors detailed in our supervision contract. Supervision sessions are offered by Practice Owner, Kim Rippy, LPC and Kaitlyn Steel, LMFT.
At Keystone, Residents are encouraged to work with diverse populations to develop their counseling skills, including individuals, couples, families, groups, multiculturally diverse and LGBTQIA+. Appropriate supervision is provided by supervisors with applicable training in clients’ presenting issues.
If you are interested in receiving Clinical Supervision as a Resident in Counseling, please contact your supervisor of interest directly. Clinical supervisors can be viewed on our About Us page. If you are interested in joining Keystone as a Resident in Counseling, please email your interest, resume, and two letters of recommendation to Kim Rippy at [email protected].
