Clinical Consultation & Training

Midwest Counseling is proud to offer clinical consultation and training services for clinicians outside our practice.

 

We firmly believe that ongoing learning and diverse perspectives provide the best opportunity for therapists and counselors to grow personally and professionally.

We have opportunities for consultation with specialists in eating disorders, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), addiction/recovery, and trauma. We also have weekly group consultation meetings focused on Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)-informed treatment, eating disorders, and addiction.

Additionally, Midwest Counseling experts are available to present to outside organizations,  offering education on specific areas of expertise.

If you would like to learn more about consultation or clinical trainings at Midwest Counseling, or are interested in having one of our clinicians speak at your organization, please contact Dr. Danielle Doucette, Psy. D.

With 14 years of clinical supervision experience, I approach supervision from a collaborative framework to help supervisees grow in their professional life which will help them better serve their clients. Working through complex emotions in a safe space allows supervisees to manage the stress experienced on the job. I follow a developmental approach to supervision which adjusts for and to the level of expertise of the supervisee, primarily using the teacher role with novice supervisees and consultation with more experienced supervisees. I have supervised clinicians in the following areas of practice: individual counseling, family therapy, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Child-Parent Psychotherapy, anxiety disorders, mood disorders, trauma spectrum disorders, children and families involved in the child welfare system, child and adult survivors of childhood abuse, non-violent crisis intervention, parent-child relational problems, and parenting issues.
