On the journey to getting your LMHC? Congratulations! This is an exciting time that has taken perseverance and dedication to get to where you are today. In supervision, we’ll tackle a variety of clinical concerns related to your clients such as therapeutic interventions, treatment planning, and differential diagnosis. We’ll also be addressing common professional concerns like compassion fatigue, countertransference, ethical decision making and maintaining healthy boundaries.
Similar to my clinical practice, I utilize a person centered, strengths-based approach to build upon your innate abilities to enhance your clinical skills. I will help guide you through the therapeutic process and support you while you develop your own therapeutic style. I provide an open space to help you feel comfortable asking any questions that you may have. It would be a privilege to provide guidance and support to you on this journey. Don’t have a counseling job yet? No problem! I can help with looking for job opportunities with the population or setting you would ideally like to work in and assist with making those career connections.
Hello! I’m Elizabeth Thigpen, a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Qualified Supervisor for Registered Mental Health Counselor Interns in the state of Florida (License: MH13673). I’ve been working in the mental health field since 2012. During this time, I’ve had the pleasure of working with individuals of diverse backgrounds in various environments including juvenile justice residential programs, inpatient and in-home care.
This field can be very rewarding and I’m honored when a client chooses to share their journey with me. Identifying a client’s personal strengths and abilities is a very important part of counseling, and I work with clients to utilize their innate assets to overcome challenges. Areas of clinical interest include treating trauma, depression, anxiety, improving family relationships, stress management and mindfulness.
