Deb Owens Clinical Supervision

Clinical Supervision group members provide case management, individual counseling, career counseling, family, play, music therapy, consultation, training, social work, and group psychotherapy as well as art therapist treatment approaches.

We focus on supervision of cases and situations as expected for Clinical Supervision, not on personal material since this group is not a therapy experience.

The clinical supervision group includes both mid-career change adults and younger traditional age graduates from various counseling and psychology masters or doctoral programs in the Philadelphia area and beyond:

LaSalle, Penn, Temple, Drexel, Arcadia, Villanova, Holy Family, Immaculata, Columbia, NYU, Bryn Mawr, Rutgers, Lehigh, Chestnut Hill College, PCOM, etc.

This is an engaging high quality clinical supervision group geared toward helping members grow and develop as ethical competent counselors.

It is a welcoming group. Members participate at whatever level they feel comfortable. Many now licensed graduates stay in touch and have been supportive of each others career growth.

I am not new to providing LPC clinical supervision. See Therapist Bio. I have experience as a Clinical Supervisor and Director with several quality treatment programs and EAPs and have a successful private practice while providing consulting to the health care industry and companies, including Acadia Health System, Brook Glen Behavioral Health, Family Services, University of Pennsylvania, University of Pennsylvania Health System, and Rehab After Work.

I conduct executive coaching, training, consultation, team experiences, leadership retreats, and crises response at large and mid-size corporations including Fortune 100 companies such as:
3M, Astra Zeneca,  Merrill Lynch, Johnson & Johnson, Prudential, Glaxo, Morgan Stanley, US Water, American Red Cross, Mellon Financial, Towers Perrin, as well as small and family run businesses.

I have presented at international clinical conferences on therapy related topics including The Psychotherapy Networker, American Psychological Association of N.J., Employee Assistance Professionals Association where I served on the Certification Board for 3 yrs including a yr. as Ethics Committee Chair, EASNA, the Council on Compulsive Gambling, and PA Certification Board (addiction counseling, alcohol, drugs).

This LPC clinical supervision group has been successfully running for over 5 yrs. Most members stay between 6-20 months depending on where they are in the licensure process as well as the number of hours they are working.

All my supervision graduates have successfully obtained their license in Pennsylvania. I am not a novice at this or just trying to start up a supervision group that may or may not continue or get traction.

Clinical Supervision Group Location

Wyndmoor, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, 19038 or at my private counseling practice in  Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia, PA 19118 near Mount Airy, Ambler, Blue Bell, Jenkintown, Lafayette Hill, and Fort Washington, PA. Close to Rt 309, 76, Turnpike, Main Line, Bucks and Delaware Counties. Free parking out front. Septa trains and buses from Center City Philadelphia are within a 5 min. walk. 

Since its just monthly the distance is doable even for those coming for clinical supervision from Bucks, Delaware, Chester, Philadelphia, Montgomery County, Center City, or the Main Line.

I realize you may be coming from a full work day so we try and keep the format engaging. During the break we discuss an article, link, or video clip related to licensure expectations such as Ethics in Counseling in a digital age, working with challenging systems, and case studies from “experts.”

Half of your required hours for licensure in PA as an LPC, LMFT, or LCSW can be in a group format.

Please take responsibility to first check with the PA State Licensing Board and review info on their web site to ensure you are following their guidelines for clinical supervision hours and specifically understand the individual and group supervision hours ratio.

While I keep a record of all our clinical supervision meetings it is your responsibility to keep accurate records of your work and clinical supervision hours too and to contact the board for any clarification you need for correctly following the license process.

I adhere to the board’s guidelines and provide accurate documentation to complete your clinical supervision forms when you are ready to seek your LPC, LMFT, or LCSW license.

Most group members are receiving their individual counselor supervision at their work place while a few may be getting it privately or from me.

Individual Clinical Supervision

Individual Clinical Supervision for counselors and therapists is offered at my Montgomery County office near Fort Washington or my counseling practice in Philadelphia.

The fee is 75. per hr. for individual clinical supervision if you are a current (must be F2F) or former group member or 95. for already practicing and licensed clinicians.

Only day time hrs. are available for individual clinical supervision. Clinical supervision post licensure can be conducted live or by phone or video using a secure platform.

I’m happy to provide names of colleagues to consider for group or individual hours toward LMFT, LPC, and LCSW if you need a different option, clinical expertise, location, or a lower fee for individual clinical supervision.
