Individual Counseling for Women

Not sure what is going on or know exactly what's up? Either way - let's talk and see if we are a good fit. That's what we do as people and that's how I roll as a counselor. My home page has a list of where I "fit" best, but I am a great believer in building connections, so I will not waste your time if I know an awesome colleague that I think will be a better fit for you. I call this part of finding a good therapist "following the breadcrumbs" and part of the process.

Most insurance plans accepted at the contracted rate or private pay rate of $100 per clinical hour session if you do not wish to use insurance. I can provide an invoice to turn into your insurance if I am not in-network and they may reimburse you. I am in-network with:

Aetna
Blue Cross Blue Shiled
Cigna
Ceridian EAP
Compsych
Humana
Lifesynch
Magellan
MHN
MH Net
Multiplan / PHCS
Tricare (with PCM form completed - I will provide)
Value Options

Hours of Availability

By Appointment Only. Weekdays, 9am - 6pm.

Please call (210) 887-2122 or email SueCliffordLPC@aol.com to schedule an initial appointment. We will match up calendars, get the info your insurance wants me to provide, and I will get some paperwork - including directions - to you for the first appointment.

Due to strict federal and state laws about informing  you of and protecting your privacy, I am not able to chat about what is going on until we first meet. (I have the same type of practice requirements and forms as we all receive at our physician and dentist offices).

Professional Development for Clinicians

 LPC Supervision for LPC Interns:

I currently offer p
rivate clinical supervision in accordance with Texas state licensing board requirements (off-site). I do not employ Interns in my practice but will mentor those interested in having a private practice upon full licensure as part of clinical supervision.

My passion is matching up counseling practice with the spiritual or life purpose that draws us to do what we do in life. Let's figure out who you are, why you are choosing counseling as your profession, and merge it with what the state of Texas says we must do as an Licensed Professional Counselor. This is the time to break away from the classroom pack to focus on YOU!

I enjoy mentoring LPC Interns with diverse interests and career goals - including finding and developing a career path. I do not believe in creating a "mini-me"; rather, I believe all counselors must follow their own path. I am passionate about walking with LPC Interns . Clinical supervision has been defined as a senior member of the profession mentoring a junior member of the profession. This is a very different relationship than that of counselor-client.

In Texas, you do not find a supervisor and are good to go. Your supervisor's license and liability is tied specifically to where you work and a form must be completed for each site. Good supervisors carefully screen where they will supervise, ensuring you as an Intern are practicing safely. I am no different, and  meet with new graduates after an employment position is secured.

I have had the honor of providing clinical supervision for LPC Interns earning clinical hours at a wide variety of sites, including Laurel Ridge, Methodist Transplant and Specialty, The Nix, La Paz, NEISD, Northside ISD, Judson ISD, UTSA, St. Mary's University, ACCD (all campuses), OLLU, The Ecumenical Center, Volunteers of America, Methodist Home, The Guadalupe Community Center, The Guadalupe Home, Center for Health Care Services, Family Service Association, Children's Bereavement Center of South Texas, Rape Crisis Center, Family Violence Prevention Center, MAUC, PDAP, MHMR, YWCA, Head Start, ChildSafe, The Women's Shelter, Baptist Children's Home, United Behavioral Health Group, Vitas Hospice, and many more clinical sites.

Clinical supervision includes 24/7 coverage of the temporary license with my full license (i.e., whenever an LPC Intern is working as a counselor). In other words, I carry limited liability for the practice of LPC Interns that I supervise. Therefore, I do require strict adhereance to meeting weekly (I offer web-cam supervision as an option for weekly face-to-face meetings, although no more than half of all supervision meetings may be in this format). I have authored a helpful
one-page guide to finding a supervisor available at
LPCReview.com (Find a Supervisor page).

The monthly charge for my clinical supervision services is $225 per month. I highly encourage supervisees, as the consumer, to interview several supervisors rather than race to find someone to complete a supervisor agreement form that is required in the licensing application process. Clinical supervision is a unique relationship lasting a minimum of 18 months, and there must be a good "fit" for both the supervisor and the supervisee in personality, professional development goals, and even logistics - such as availability to meet.

Please
email or call me (210-887-2122) if you would like more information about my supervision services (no employment inquiries, please). For a summary of my theoretical lens of practice, please visit my Professional Philosophy page.
