Ingrid Ponciano, LCMFT is dedicated to providing supervision services that improve the clinical and administrative development of counselors in training.
How does supervision work? In this relationship, the counselor can share, reflect, and get feedback to help increase her/his ethical competence and confidence to best serve clients over several sessions.
Ingrid takes on specific roles with the supervisee based on the dynamic of the relationship and the cases being processed. These roles include:
- Teacher (Action) for didactic-oriented activities, evaluative functions, and transmitting knowledge;
- Counselor (Relationship) to help the counselor understand their own dynamics and resolve issues affecting counseling.
- Consultant (Insight) to provide an opportunity for the counselor to develop her/his own conceptualization and plan.
With these roles, Ingrid also embraces a development model of supervision where she aims to support the supervisee in the process of moving toward competence via stages.
The process of clinical development, administrative finesse, and change will in many ways, be unique to the supervisee’s particular situation.
Ingrid’s extensive experience in treating couples and individual adults provides great support to those counselors in training that are hoping to gain more experience and increase their knowledge in working with couples and relational issues.
In addition, Ingrid has the experience of setting up solo private practices and group practice. This experience is an additional resource for supervisees hoping to learn about private practice and the business aspect of the field.
The supervision Ingrid offers is consistent with the ethical standards set forth by The Maryland Board of Professional Counseling, the American Counseling Association, and the National Board of Certified Counselors.
