A Place To Learn
Drs. David and Suzanne Mikkelson have a passion for providing supervision and mentorship for the next generation of marriage and family therapists and professional counselors. Together, they have mentored over 100 interns and residents over the past 10+ years. Their passion for passing the torch creates a climate of growth and learning in a setting that is collaborative, developmental, respectful, and strengths focused.
David, Suzanne, and Dr. Steve Johnson are Board Approved supervisors in Virginia for residents seeking to become Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists and/or Licensed Professional Counselors. They are also credentialed as American Association for Marriage and Family Therapists (AAMFT) Approved Supervisors, the highest national standard for clinical supervision. They offer weekly individual supervision in addition to group supervision for off-site students and residents whose clinical work is provided at another location.
In addition to clinical supervision, Suzanne is an EMDRIA Approved Consultant and offers consultation for EMDR basic training, certification in EMDR, and post-certification mentoring. EMDR is a popular and evidence-based treatment method for trauma as well as problems with disturbing thoughts and emotions, whether PTSD is diagnosed or not. See below for more information.
