Supervision for LPC Associates in Texas
Providing quality online supervision for LPC Associates who want to start a private practice in Texas
Online Supervision in Texas
No matter where you are in the state of Texas, you deserve to have a supervisor who wants you to succeed in private practice. The truth is grad school didn’t teach you how to run a business, how to market, or even how to become a great therapist.
That’s why I became a supervisor- to fill in the gaps. I believe LPC Associates deserve to have thriving private practices. You deserve to skip “the grind” and to not be exploited and overworked for little pay. You can be successful and not burn out as an associate.
“I’m here to teach you all the things about private practice they didn’t teach you in grad school.”

Mark Cagle, LPC Supervisor
I am a therapist in Dallas and have a thriving private practice in which I work with couples who are struggling with infidelity or who find themselves at the crossroads of divorce.
Private practice is challenging but also very rewarding. I’ve made more than my fair share of mistakes along the way, and I hope to help you avoid some of the pitfalls of starting a private practice.

Yes, you may want to work with a variety of clients through your supervision. However, if you try to speak to everyone, no one will hear you. You can have a few specializations or target markets; speaking effectively to them starts with one.

My Approach & Philosophy
While there are minimum standards that every supervisor must cover- logging hours, reviewing laws and ethics, monitoring associate development, etc.- I believe the supervisory relationship can, and should be, so much more.
I believe there are many roles a successful supervisor must fill. These include teacher, coach, and consultant, to name a few. A quality LPC Supervisor is able to transition seamlessly between these roles and apply them at the appropriate time.
While there will be times that I provide direct instruction and guidance, there are many more times that I join with my supervisees to help them along the path toward an answer that works for them. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to therapy, and I believe the same can be said of supervision.
I am in this process to learn alongside you.
I also believe that supervision is a journey of self-discovery, and I look forward to walking with you as you discover more about yourself and what it means to be a successful therapist.
