Offered by Ryan Cheney, MA, LPC, ACS who is an Oregon state approved supervisor and can provide individual and group supervision for state licensure (LPC and LMFT).

Ryan’s philosophy of counseling supervision focuses on his supervisee’s developmental stage. This theory relies on evaluation of professional development while providing feedback and support appropriate to that developmental stage. The supervisor’s role is to facilitate the supervisee’s progression/learning to the next stage of growth. He also incorporates Integrative Supervision Theory through the use of Bernard’s Discrimination Model which consists of focusing on supervisee need with: intervention, conceptualization, and personalization while identifying the appropriate supervisor role of: teacher, counselor, or consultant (Bernard & Goodyear, 2009). He supervises from a trauma informed lens. This includes focus in creating a safe environment & relationship with supervisee’s while supporting clinical growth through the awareness of trauma exposure and how it affects the mind, body, and nervous systems in relationship to working with clients.
