Joella Long is an American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy Approved Supervisor candidate, a national level credential.
Along with ten years of practicing as a couple and family therapist, Joella also offers a wealth of knowledge about the world of private practice. Nine of her ten years of clinical experience has been spent specifically on private practice researching the most innovative practices to keep therapy in touch with current cultural discourse and needs.
Joella’s passion lies at the intersection of systemic theory, social justice, and entrepreneurship. She seeks to uncover that unique offering that each supervisee innately is developing and match it with client needs.
By using a foundation of Solution-Focused, Experiential and Systemic theories, you will walk away from supervision with the confidence and competence to offer systemic couple and family therapy in a private practice environment.
You will also be able to clearly identify your unique skills and self-of-the-therapist you bring to your clients— giving you a headstart on a career in private practice.
After an initial hour-long consultation, we collaboratively create a plan for supervision frequency and duration to ensure you can qualify for full licensure in Oregon. In general, the Oregon Board of Licensed Professional Counselors and Therapists requires 3 years (36 months) of supervised clinical experience in order to qualify for licensure. Each Registered Intern has their own unique path toward securing enough experience and supervision to apply for licensure.
