Looking for an ethical, experienced, well-rounded supervisor who will prepare you for the counseling world.
A. Consider choosing R. Keith Franklin, PhD, LPC-S, ACS
- Over a decade’s worth of counseling experience in a variety of settings and ten years of experience as a professional counselor
- I have a private office for LPC Intern (eligible) to attain clinical experience. You would be on a contract basis and NOT an employee of mine. I would be your supervisor; we would meet weekly for individual supervision and/or group supervision according to the Texas Administrative Code. I will consult with you regarding marketing, networking, and referrals, but interns are primarily responsible for these items.
- Whenever possible, I perform site visits where the internship is taking place.
- When possible, I review the intern’s case notes to improve documentation and to monitor ethical compliance.
- I am dedicated to providing the intern with real-world counseling advice on topics such as, dealing with subpoenas, possible ethical & legal issues that may arise in practice, issues to consider when practicing in inpatient settings, private practice, and for-profits/non-profits, how to do a thorough initial evaluation, giving a diagnosis and cautions that are associated with certain diagnoses, how to become an insurance provider, how to fill out insurance paperwork, and how to network and advertise yourself as a counselor.
- I counsel and supervise from an educational perspective while using a variety of theories, including cognitive-behavioral and family systems. I see supervision as a collaborative effort and that interns are treated as equals.
- My one low monthly supervision fee includes weekly sessions, handouts, networking opportunities, and group supervision, when feasible. There is no fee for the initial meeting with me and the Intern does not start to pay the supervision fee until the Intern has received his/her license.
