LMFT Supervision

LMFT Supervisor Austin

“I would highly recommend supervision with Kathryn Gates. She helped me gain confidence, learn skills, obtain knowledge, and think through not just work with clients, but note taking, payment taking, paperwork, and record keeping. I still use some of the processes she taught me. I also really enjoyed discussing theory and the practice of therapy with her. I feel like I learned a lot and was allowed to explore for myself in a very supportive environment.”

Your 3000 hours as an LMFT-Associate are arguably the most important period of your career. It is when you discover who you are as a therapist, what you are good at, what you are drawn to, and what not to do.

My relationship with LMFT-Associate supervisees is supportive and collaborative as we bring out who you are as a therapist. Beyond techniques and interventions, I am interested in developing your instrument: yourself. Getting to know who you are in the therapist’s chair and how you are best fueled contributes to your career being fulfilling and successful. This ultimately makes you attractive to clients because you are confident and comfortable in yourself and how you provide support.

I work with couples and families from an Imago and Bowen Family Systems perspective and I see individual clients through a systemic lens, employing techniques from ACT, CBT, and Narrative Theory. With qualified candidates, I’m open to exploring what theories and applications work best for you in the room with your clients.
