Ensuring the quality of our supervisors is of utmost importance to Motivo. We take great care to match you with the best supervisor for your clinical needs, demographic preferences, and areas of specialty. This starts with an introductory call with your prospective supervisor to ask questions and assess supervisory fit. After you get started, we’ll check in with you regularly to gather feedback on how supervision is going. If you are unsatisfied, we are here to help match you with another supervisor.
Good news! We’ve done this research for you! We’ve compiled our findings on this page. Filter by state and license type to read our most recent assessment of the rules.
Please note: While our research is a great starting point, licensure rules can change frequently and sometimes without much notice. Your state licensure board is the final authority on all things virtual supervision – and we recommend double-checking with the board when the rules are a bit unclear.
Motivo partners with many different types of behavioral health employers in order to free up internal resources that may be providing supervision today. We serve community mental health centers, non-profit organizations, digital health apps, treatment centers, hospital systems, and health plans. We assign each employer partner to a dedicated Care Team who ensures you are matched with the best supervisors for your organization, helps train supervisors on your internal processes, and remains in close contact with you to make sure you have everything you need to serve your clients and employees.
Absolutely! We verify the licensure credentials of each supervisor on our platform. We also complete a face-to-face alignment call with supervisors to learn more about the supervisor’s experience, areas of expertise, and approach to supervision. Lastly, all Motivo supervisors sign a legal attestation form to verify that they meet the requirements to supervise in their state.
We have nearly 1,000 supervisors, licensed in most states across the following license and certification types:
Also, we are constantly growing. Just because you don’t see it, doesn’t mean we can’t do it! Feel free to email us at [email protected] if you have a specific request.
Only a few days! Once you have decided on the supervisor you’d like to work with, we collect your payment information and add you to your supervisor’s dashboard. The supervisor can begin scheduling sessions with you immediately!
Great question! We wrote up a list of questions you can use to guide your introductory call with a potential supervisor. Take a look at our suggested list of questions right here.
Yes, we will collect your zip code during onboarding and do our very best to match you with a supervisor within a drive-able distance for in-person supervision.
We sure do! From your dashboard, you’ll see a summary of the date, time, and duration of your Motivo supervision sessions. You can export a report of your hours as an Excel or PDF document.
Yes! Our supervisors are well-versed in the supervision documentation needs and requirements of your state and licensure type. This will be an item you’ll want to discuss on your intro call with a prospective supervision.
Both supervisees and supervisors are to provide 24 hours notice to their supervisee or supervisor if they are not able to attend a session. If a supervisee is to cancel within’ that window, they may still be charged for that session at the supervisor’s discretion.
It depends. If you are a student who would like to utilize Motivo, you should first obtain permission from your graduate university and placement site. If you receive approval, we are happy to match you with a Motivo supervisor.
The beauty of Motivo is that we are committed to helping you find the right supervisor for your unique needs. If you need to make a change, for whatever reason, we can help you do just that!
Motivo’s platform is accessible from anywhere that you have internet access. Your virtual supervision sessions can be joined from your desktop, laptop, tablet, or smart phone.
