At the current time, Snapclarity is especially interested in working with registered therapists who meet regularly with a PhD supervisor. This is important to us for two reasons:
- Unlike many face-to-face therapy practices, therapists on the Snapclarity platform tend to work independently. We believe it is important for therapists to discuss their work with a PhD supervisor in order to maintain good client care, despite working remotely.
- Obtaining supervision from a clinical psychologist upfront is important in order to increase the chances that the therapy you provide will be covered by clients' private insurance plans. Navigating the insurance coverage landscape, is unfortunately one of the most frustrating aspect of starting a private practice for social workers and psychotherapists, but one that is likely to be overcome with therapists’ efforts.
Therapists may find it helpful to reach out to other therapists they know - including those on the Snapclarity platform (via Slack) - who are currently receiving supervision from a clinical psychologist to find out how they overcame this obstacle.
In the future Snapclarity is interested in finding ways to link therapists with PhD supervisors. We will keep you updated on our progress.
