Rosie Newman, MA, LMHC, RPT-S
I enjoy helping clinicians enhance their clinical skills and grow and develop as clinicians. There are a number of ways that you might choose to work with me to help support your growth as a therapist, no matter if your a new therapist or seasoned therapist. See the options below and contact me if you have any questions or think we might be a good fit to work together.
I am able to supervise associate therapists working towards licensure. The difference between Supervision and Consultation is that I will sign off on your hours for licensure. Because of this, mutual determination of fit is an important part of this process. I offer a one hour meeting, free of charge, so that we can determine fit before moving forward with a supervisory relationship. Since my experience is with children and teens, I do not provide supervision for therapists working with adults. My therapeutic style and orientation is focused depth work, meaningful interactions, play therapy and creative and expressive interventions (feel free to browse my website to learn more about me).
The cost per session is $150 per 50-minutes and is provided on an individual basis.
[Please note that I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC), so please be aware of your own licensing body’s requirements for obtaining supervision.]
Clinical Consultation and Business Consultation
I provide consultation for therapists looking to refine their clinical skills as child and play therapists. As a consultant, I create a safe place to process, think critically about cases, offer clinical insights and review ethical considerations and professional standards, while supporting the professional growth and development of the clinician. Furthermore, when necessary, I offer business development consultation, offering you mentorship in developing a thriving private practice.
The cost per session is $150 per 50-minutes.
Group consultation is limited to two participants and the fee may be shared. If you are interested in sharing group email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can put you in contact with others have also expressed interest.
Play Therapy Supervision or Consultation
Play Therapy specific supervision is a good fit for practicing child therapists interested in learning more about play therapy or working towards the Registered Play Therapist (RPT) credential.
As of January 2020, all supervision requirements for the Registered Play Therapist (RPT) credential must be met by meeting with a Registered Play Therapist Supervisor (RPT-S). You will need 350 face to face play therapy hours relative to 35 clinical supervision hours, completed in a tiered phasing system. See the RPT Standards for more information.
Rosie Newman is a WA Department of Health Approved Supervisor, Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Registered Play Therapist – Supervisor (RPT-S) through the Association for Play Therapy. Find out more about Rosie Newman.
