To intern at Soul Care Associates, you must already hold an LPC-Intern license and agree to be supervised by Greg Wilson. Greg Wilson is a state-approved LPC Supervisor and takes a limited number of LPC Interns, due to his many other responsibilities. Interns seeking supervision for hours obtained off-site are responsible for their own client load either through an agency, hospital, internship site, or private practice.
We encourage you to be very discerning when picking a practicum site or an LPC Supervisor for your internship.
Questions for a Supervisee to Consider When Choosing A Supervisor:
- When did the supervisor have their last Supervisor Refresher Course? This is required every 2 years at renewal for supervisors.
- When is the last time the supervisor read through the Board Rules and Code of Ethics?
- Is the supervisor's current position and experience something you would like to obtain or become in your own career?
- Is a Supervision Contract and Informed Consent agreement being used to clearly outline responsibilities?
- Has the supervisor ever had a complaint filed against them?
For LPC-Interns, participating in supervision in our practice has many benefits:

For LPC Interns, the state of Texas requires supervision for one hour a week as stated on the Supervisory Agreement Form. Only 50 percent of supervision can be obtained in a group format or by webcam.
