Supervisor general FAQs

Hey supervisors! Here are the answers to some general questions about Motivo.

What is Motivo?

Motivo is the largest virtual supervision platform that gives employers and pre-licensed clinicians the supervision that they need to see patients and get licensed. Check out our website with this link!

What are Motivo's core values?

We have four core values at Motivo. These are the values that guide our work, keep us focused, and help us solve problems. -Invest in Impact We are committed to our cause of solving the shortage of mental health providers and we focus on the areas that yield the most impactful results.

  • Dig Deep We intentionally foster an environment of self-work and cultural humility. We are curious and introspective. We engage in lifelong learning.
  • Take Ownership When we see a problem, we feel empowered to fix it. We trust each other to make the right decisions.
  • Think like a Therapist We are empathic, open-minded, and honest. We use direct, clear, and kind communication and we always assume good intent.

Is there a vetting process supervisors must go through before being accepted to Motivo?


  • We verify the licensure credentials of each supervisor on our platform.
  • We complete a face-to-face alignment call with supervisors to learn more about the supervisor’s experience, areas of expertise, and approach to supervision.
  • All Motivo supervisors sign a legal attestation form to verify that they meet the requirements to supervise in their state.
