Congratulations to the 2018 CCE Approved Clinical Supervisor (ACS) training award winners. Recipients receive $500 to support their attainment of the ACS credential.
Dr. Botello works with a diverse faculty and staff in the Northern Arizona University (NAU) Employee Assistance and Wellness program. She provides individual and couples counseling, and presentations and workshops on mental health and wellness. Her research focuses on mood, stress and quality of life in women, comparing art interventions with evidence-based cognitive behavioral interventions, and integrating counseling modalities. NAU is in a rural community rich in Native American traditions, with few resources for internships and residencies. With programs for master’s-level counseling and doctoral programs in counseling and school psychology, students must often relocate to meet internship and residency requirements. The ACS award will help Dr. Botello receive training to work with graduates in need of clinical supervision required by licensing boards.
Dr. Crawford is a professor of school and clinical mental health counseling in the Division of Counseling, Rehabilitation & Interpreter Training at Troy University in Phenix City, Alabama. She is a National Certified Counselor (NCC), and is credentialed as a Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor (LPC-S) in Georgia and Alabama, and as a Certified School Counselor in Alabama. Before becoming a professor at Troy, she counseled children and adults in clinical and school settings. Dr. Crawford actively volunteers for the NBCC Foundation as a scholarship reviewer and mentor. Her research interests include trends in school counseling including interpersonal violence and suicide prevention, and skill acquisition for counselors-in-training. The ACS award will allow her to attend training for facilitating ethical and effective practices for professional counselors seeking licensure or certification.
Jones is interested in researching the correlations of mental health and intergenerational trauma in minority populations, the stigmas and barriers associated with mental health that prevent minorities from seeking services, and breaking down these barriers to prevent generational cycles of trauma, abuse and poverty. Jones also has a passion for working with teen mothers to help them graduate from high school, avoid unplanned repeat pregnancies and achieve higher education. She is an adjunct professor in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences at Grand Canyon University. The ACS award will provide Jones with opportunities to help graduate students seeking supervision for licensure at no cost as her way of giving back to the profession.
Dr. Smith is interested in researching online learning environments and career counseling issues. She is a teaching associate professor at North Carolina State University and has been part of the CACREP-accredited counselor education program for the past nine years. She is also the college counseling coordinator for on-campus and online programs. She has been a Licensed Professional Counselor-Supervisor (LPC-S) for six years and supervises practicum and internship students and licensure-seeking members of the community. The ACS award will provide Dr. Smith the opportunity to enhance her training and extend supervision services to a wider audience.
Dr. Young is a graduate of Arizona State University, where she received a Doctor of Behavioral Health (DBH), and is a National Certified Counselor (NCC) and a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). The role of a DBH is to provide integrated behavioral health care in primary care settings, reaching populations with physical and behavioral health needs. She also provides supervision to master’s-level counselors who are pursuing licensure. The ACS award will help Dr. Young increase supervisory skills, assist supervisees by encouraging them to provide the best care possible, and be a hallmark to the excellent standards exhibited by an NCC and licensed counselor.
