If you are accruing hours towards the RPT credential:
Receiving supervision from an RPT-S can expedite that process. You are able to fulfill your supervision requirements by obtaining 335 supervised hours and 30 hours of clinical supervision from an RPT-S (versus 500 supervised hours and 50 hours of supervision from an non-RPT-S credentialed supervisor). For information about the Registered Play Therapist credential see the “Tips for Gaining your RPT” tab.
You are responsible of keeping track of your hours, and I will sign off (on Form A of the RPT application) the number of hours you receive.
If the proposed days and times do not work for you, please fill out the contact form and suggest other days/times and you will be added to the emailing list. Alternatively, you may choose to obtain individual supervision.
Cancellation Policy: You will receive a refund if you cancel your place with notice of 2 or more business days. Cancellations with less than 2 business day’s notice will be subject to a $50 fee.
