Become a Supervisor

Supervisor Registry

The registry is a list of Oregon licensed professional counselors (LPCs) and licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFTs) who are available to provide supervision services to registered associates. 

  • The Supervisor Registry is integrated into the License Search function.  To search for supervisors, you can check the box to "only show results with supervisors." The online profile lists the supervisor's supervisory status and languages spoken.
  • Apply for placement on the Registry via the Licensee Portal.  Once logged in, click on "Supervisor Registry Application" from the left side menu.

Supervisor Qualifications

A supervisor must be competent in the clinical specialty areas in which the registered associate will be practicing and with the populations with whom the registered associate will be providing professional counseling or marriage and family therapy services.  A supervisor may not be a spouse or relative, have a close personal relationship, or be a former therapist of the supervisee.  The Board may approve supervisors on the Registry (candidates and approved supervisors) or other qualifying supervisors who meet the criteria below.
