Tonya Ratliff provides Clinical Supervision for LLPCs working toward their 3,000 hours of post-degree counseling experience, as required by the state of Michigan. Tonya has completed extensive post-graduate training in Clinical Supervision, and holds the Approved Clinical Supervisor (ACS) credential from the Center for Credentialing and Education. She has provided supervision in both university and private practice settings.
Tonya’s approach to supervision is collaborative in nature, with a focus on the Supervisee’s professional behaviors, counseling skills, personal awareness and beliefs, the therapeutic relationship with their clients, case conceptualization and treatment planning.
A new counselor’s first foray into a clinical setting with troubled clients can be overwhelming and preoccupying at times. For this reason, Tonya also provides ongoing support for the many insecurities that plague new counselors. This support includes a focus on the counselor’s perspective of their own strengths, time management skills, and maintaining boundaries between their professional role and personal life.
Tonya provides supervision for individual, couples, and family counseling, and adheres to the ethical principal that she only supervise within the scope of her own education, experience, and skills. Therefore, Tonya does not provide supervision for school counselors, substance abuse counselors, or those working with very young children.
Tonya offers a one-hour complimentary interview to individuals seeking supervision to discuss in detail the potential supervisory relationship.
