Dr. David C. Congdong
I am a qualified supervisor for licensure candidates for LCSW and LMHC licensure. I am happy to work with you in our offices, in the community, or online to help licensure candidates achieve their goals. Some of my experiences include Clinical Consultant and director of accreditation for Mental Health Services at a large community mental health center in west central Florida.I developed the mental health services for one of the largest counseling organizations in Central Florida from their inception and was the Director of Mental Health Operations for that organization. that I have been the licensure supervisor for a large number of professionals in Central Florida who have taken leadership positions with Aetna, University of Central Florida, Value Options, and Southeastern University. My approach to supervision is based on the licensure candidate developing a sound theoretical approach in counseling and becoming a truly therapeutic person in work with patients. As in my counseling work, I provide extensive support and work to build on the strengths of each candidate with whom I work.

As a qualified supervisor for LMFT and LMHC I try to help registered interns find themselves in their careers. I am able to combine real life experiences along with educational materials to help the supervise learn in a holistic way. I have many years of experience in the field as a counselor and a supervisor. I try to integrate this knowledge into your supervision experience. It is my belief that in order to be a great counselor you first need to learn how to find balance between personal life and work; I strive in teaching this as many counselors have a difficulty in this area and feel burnout in the 1st year after school or during a full time job.
My therapeutic approach has been polished during my years of experience, I use a non judgmental approach, accepting and understanding. My theoretical approach is based on solution focus approach, cognitive behavioral therapy, family systems and motivational interviewing. I have found my center in these theories, but it is my job to help YOU find your center!
Become a healer was an amazing accomplishment but seeking licensure is elevating yourself and your skills to the next step in your career! I am truly proud of you for seeking licensure, it would be an honor to help you achieve this!
