Professional Supervision

Currently, Global Therapy offers individual and group supervision to Social Workers, Mental Health Counselors, Marriage and Family Therapists and Substance Abuse professionals. Donna M. Hunter, LCSW, CAP is a qualified supervisor in the State of Florida. Supervision meets all requirements for licensure. No more than 1/2 of a professional's supervision can be in a group setting. Group supervision is held twice a month. Individual supervision is $55 per hour. Group supervision is $35 for an hour and a half group session. Additionally, a substance abuse professional who is carrying out substance abuse treatment in a departmental facility or program must be working under the direct supervision of a substance abuse service provider employed by, or under contract with the departmental facility or program

Direct supervision means that the licensed mental health professional or substance abuse service provider has at least one hour per week of face-to-face interaction with the unlicensed individual for the purpose of overseeing and directing the mental health treatment or substance abuse treatment that he or she is providing in the facility. Therapy is the art of relationship between the therapist and the client. Professionals come with a variety of textbook cases but need to mold their own style into the treatment. Quality Supervision allows a counselor’s personal style to blend with common treatment practice to create a "fit" between client, therapist and treatment.

An unlicensed mental health professional who is carrying out mental health treatment in a departmental facility or program must be working under the direct supervision of a licensed mental health professional (as permitted by law within his/her State of Florida licensure) employed by, or under contract with the departmental facility or program.
