Les Cole, LPC, CPCS, NBCC, CGP

This career "chose" me, and I have grown to believe it was the best use of my gifts, knowledge, and abilities. Each day as a therapist has been a good "trade" of a day of this gift called life.

I supervise because I simply learn so much from the collaboration. Supervision is a process in which two clinicians choose to walk hand-in-hand down this path of learning, with one occasionally out ahead of the other. It is a sanctuary in which we learn how to lead by learning. So rich!

I would hope each new professional would receive the richness I have received from this practice. I hope that they would awaken each day excited to see, feel, hear, and sense the awe of this art and use that "wealth" to drive their study, striving, and searching to improve the work we do.
