Consultation & Evaluation
At LCS, we believe in building relationships with the community and extending our impact beyond our office. One way we do this is through consultation. We provide consultative services for our clients, our referral sources and our community through workshops, guest speaking, advocacy and training. We collaborate with other health care providers, schools, churches, agencies, and local social service systems to support our clients and provide information and assistance however we can. If you think you could benefit from any of our consultation services, please contact us. We want to help.
In addition to building relationships in our community, we also believe in participating in the process of training new counselors. Karin Fields and Dee Dee Scharf both serve as Licensed Mental Health Counseling Supervisors for the state of Florida. Supervision during the licensure process is crucial for new therapists. If you are a registered mental health counseling intern who is looking for a supervisor, it would be our privilege to provide that service to you.
We also participate in a peer supervision model at our office for counselors to receive support and feedback from fellow clinicians as needed. If you are a counselor who feels isolated and in need of support, let us know. We would be honored to welcome you into our peer support network.
LCS provides several evaluation and assessment services. With a background in rehabilitation and vocational counseling, both Dee Dee Scharf and Karin Fields have specific training in administering a large battery of evaluations and assessments in the areas of disability, career/vocational testing, and determining overall functional capacity. Our clinical staff is also qualified to administer screenings for ADHD, trauma, substance abuse, and mental status.
We believe that self-awareness and identity formation are crucial components for change and growth. We incorporate inventories and assessments to measure personality, values, interests, relational needs, career preferences and many others to help our clients develop a stronger sense of self.
