Important Disclaimers Before Scheduling your Consultation

Please note that Bethany carefully screens each potential supervisee to maintain the highest standard of clinical supervision. An initial consultation call does not guarantee a contractual agreement. Our fit and your readiness for private practice are key factors in this decision.

Adhering to the professional regulations of the Colorado Mental Health Practice Act is crucial. Practicing without a supervisor, even briefly, violates this act and can have serious legal and professional consequences. Setting up proper supervision before engaging in practice is essential.

Bethany transformed my supervision experience.
 Her groups were organized, incredibly valuable and I always felt supported. Bethany's commitment to and experience in the social work field was apparent and I appreciated her willingness to facilitate conversations that allowed us to dig deeper into our identities and the impact on the clients we serve. Her humor and candor made group and individual supervision fun and I really enjoyed the time with her. I feel much more prepared to start my own practice than I did before I started working with her.
