Cat Bice, LCSW, LICSW
Offering individual sessions, relationship counseling, discernment counseling,
and clinical supervision.
Relationship counseling sees the relationship between the couple as the client and the work of the sessions is on improving the quality of that relationship. The goal of the counselor is not to take sides or decide who is "right" in the argument of the moment. Rather, the counselor's work is to help each member of the couple to slow down, see and hear themselves, see and hear their partner, and come to a different understanding of the cycles of unhelpful behavior that have developed.
Discernment counseling is a structured, short term intervention with couples who are on the brink of separation or divorce. These sessions are focused on engaging the couple in a deliberate and intentional process of discerning their commitment to the relationship and their willingness to do to the work that would be needed to change the harmful patterns. At the end of discernment counseling, the couple chooses one of three paths: keep doing what you're doing; separate/divorce; commit to a period of couples therapy with a real intent towards change.
I offer individual supervision to social workers who are pursuing their clinical licensure. Currently, the supervision hours I offer can count towards the LCSW credential in Oregon, the LICSW credential in Washington, and the LCSW credential in Hawai'i.
Please reach out to me directly so we can talk more about my style, your goals, and your timeline for supervision to see if it is the right fit.
