There can be a lot of confusion about supervision requirements for Associate level therapists in Washington State. Below are the state's licensure requirements for supervision. While each license requires supervision, each has different specific requirements that must be met.
Supervision for LMHCAs must be provided by a state approved supervisor in groups of two or less.
Total Hours Required: 200 Hours of Supervision Overall. Can be a combination of individual and group supervision.
100 of the 200 hours must be with a Supervisor that is a LMFT with 5 years clinical experience. Groups of two or less count as "Individual Supervision."
100 of the 200 hours of required supervision can be done in groups larger than 2.
