Supervision

Charline Bengtson, LMFT & owner of North Country Counseling is a board approved supervisor for those seeking licensure as an LMFT, LPC, LPCC. I am inspired by working with developing therapists eager to learn the ins and outs of therapy, working with relationships, documentation, care coordination, theory, application, and self-of-the-therapist development.  Learning to do the work we do in this world is anxiety provoking, overwhelming and rewarding! I get it and I am honored to walk through all levels of development with you.  

 

If you are a student looking for a place to complete your practicum hours, North Country Counseling has a place for you.  If you are on a pre-licensure track seeking to complete your hours toward licensure and fine-tune the skills you have been learning, it would be a great privilege to walk with you through this part of your journey leading to us being colleagues.  North Country Counseling offers independent contractor positions to pre-licensed professionals.  Please inquire about current openings.  I also supervisor candidates employed at other agencies or practices.

Mission of Supervision:  Preparing and empowering mental health professionals seeking licensure for LPC, LPCC and LMFT with a strong foundation to foster encouragement, collaboration and a sense of belonging to the individuals, couples, professionals, groups, families and culturally diverse communities they will service.
