Ingrid Ponciano, LCMFT offers a private practice of counseling supervision services. Ingrid is dedicated to providing supervision services that improve the clinical and administrative development of counselors in training.
What is supervision and how does it work? Supervision is a working relationship between Ingrid Ponciano and a counselor. 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.
Supervision is the process employed to communicate the counseling experience with the goal of facilitating the development of therapeutic competence in the supervisee experience within scheduled supervision 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 issue affecting counseling.
- Consultant (Insight) to provide 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.
