I already have a site supervisor. Do I need a Clinical Supervisor?
We all know that “supervision” at an agency generally centers around documentation challenges, technical questions, and scheduling issues.
In contrast, the core of supervision through F+T will be clinical development and YOUR interests.
Having an on-site supervisor in tandem with a clinical supervisor from Forward + Through assists in having a safe space to talk about agency-specific challenges, gaining exposure to novel treatment approaches, and having an additional perspective for challenging clinical issues.

I recently graduated and need supervision. What are Indiana requirements for supervision?
Indiana requires 100 hours of supervision during the course of your 3,000 hours of post-graduate clinical experience for pre-licensed therapists.
If you’re pre-licensed in a private practice setting, be sure to keep an on-site supervisor to meet the licensing guidelines. Join the experienced Forward + Through supervisors for additional clinical growth and development.
*Caveat Alert!* I am not a representative of the Indiana Professional Licensing Board and do not have all the answers pertaining to supervision. Be sure to check the statutes to assure you are fulfilling all of the requirements
What logistics are there surrounding clinical supervision?
There are many options for scheduling, cadence, venue, and content for those seeking full License Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) licensing requirements in Indiana and beyond.
Per the Indiana Professional Licensing Agency (IPLA), up to 50% of supervision can be done virtually. Supervision is your own so if you want to do a 50/50 split OR meet in-person more often, we will make it work for you.
$130 per supervision session.
