Tailored Training and Professional Supervision for Ph.D. Candidates & Licensed Therapists
GroundWork Training is a comprehensive program geared toward teaching the fundamentals of psychotherapy to practicum students, Ph.D. candidates, and early career psychologists. For more senior therapists we offer supervision and the opportunity to join our training team. For therapists who are new to supervision, we can provide supervision on your supervision. We work together as a team, supporting each other, and receiving guidance from senior therapists.
Whether you’re exploring your options, looking to further develop or strengthen skills in a new orientation, or seeking a collaborative environment with the potential of becoming a supervisor, we can help you meet your goals!

3-day GroundWork Training Program
Our 3 day training program is constantly evolving to meet the needs and desires of the incoming students.

The program is interactive in nature and involves a didactic component, as well as case presentations from various supervisors on the team.
