Oceanside Family Therapy & Assessments

Therapist/Clinical Supervision

When selecting a clinical supervisor it is important for an intern to consider what s/he would like to be qualified to do once licensed. 

AAMFT and ACA ethics limit the practice of psychotherapists to within their areas of expertise and training. It is considered unethical to practice couple, child or other populations of therapy or assessments of such without adequate training and supervision under someone qualified in those areas. 

Therefore, it is an investment in clinical practice to train under a supervisor experienced in areas of practice in which you wish to practice.

Once licensed, it is also encouraged that a therapist continue to train and obtain supervision in any areas that he or she may desire to branch into. At Oceanside Family Therapy & Assessments we offer experience and training in infant mental health, child therapy (including play therapy, theraplay and PAPT/Pet Assisted Play Therapy) adolescent therapy, couple and family therapy (including Gottman, EFT, Neuroscience, Attachment, etc.) and assessments for children and adults. Nicole Story is also experienced in cultural issues (and speaks basic French, German, Spanish and Irish Dialects), immigration evaluations, various court related matters and has served as Ethics Chair on the board of FAMFT and President of NEFAMFT.

Regardless of how seasoned a therapist is there are many reasons to maintain routine and occasional supervision throughout one's career. Ethical and legal dilemmas, personal stress, challenging cases, personal blocks, counter-transference and areas of specific competency are some factors to consider in order to provide the best care to one's clients.

Outside supervision is generally recommended for those in an agency setting as often the ethical decision making for the agency may be in partial conflict with the ethical obligation of the therapist, and the interpersonal relations of the colleagues and onsite supervisors may add stress to the already challenging caseload. An independent, agency experienced supervisor can assist with all of these issues in a supportive and diplomatic way to benefit both the intern and the agency.

Meet the Supervisor

Qualified as a clinical supervisor in both Marriage & Family Therapy and Mental Health Counseling, Nicole Story provides clinical supervision to registered interns seeking licenses in MFT and MHC in the state of Florida and to those seeking dual licenses in both.

As supervision is a necessary component of clinical practice at all stages of professional development, Nicole also provides clinical supervision and support for licensed psychotherapists and practicing clinical supervisors in the non-profit, military and private sectors with utmost confidentiality.

With Masters and Specialists (Psy.D equiv.) degrees in both Marriage and Family Therapy and Mental Health Counseling (from the University of Florida, with honors) and Florida licenses in both, she offers training and supervision in both intrapsychic (including psychodynamic/neuroscience/CBT/EFT/mindfulness) and inter-relational (family systems/strategic/structural/attachment) approaches to therapy. Training and supervision in Children's Assessments and Adult's Assessments and Testing is also included.

Trained in a Task-Oriented Model of Supervision, supervision at Oceanside Family Therapy includes mastering technical skills and developing an integrated personal model of therapy in addition to a case presentation format. This therapist-centered approach to supervision, supports the therapist intern's personal and professional needs in relation to their practice of psychotherapy and clinical development.

She was trained and certified in best research practice methods at the University of Miami Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and was part of a National Institute of Drug Abuse clinical study in BSFT with Hispanic/Latino teens in Miami.

In promotion of professional responsibility and activity in the field, she has proudly served on the Board of Directors of the Florida Association for Marriage and Family Therapy, Ethics Committee Co-Chair; the Northeast Florida Association for Marriage and Family Therapy, as the President & President Emeritus; and as the President of the Foundation & Board Member of the Oversight Committee of the Beaches Resource Center, A Full Service School.
