Providing Clinical Supervision


Welcome! My name is James Gurule, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Clinical Supervisor. I offer individual and group supervision for LPC and MFT Interns as well as practicing professional counselors. I am listed on the Oregon Board of Licensed Therapists and Counselors Supervisors Registry, and I have more than 25 years of experience providing clinical supervision. I have extensive training in clinical supervision, and I teach the 30 hour State-required training for counselors and social workers aspiring to be professional clinical supervisors.


I have provided child and family counseling in community mental health since 1984. I began my supervision training in 1990 and have provided Clinical Supervision since then. For the past 20 years, I have worked as Adjunct Faculty at Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon. I teach a variety of classes in the Graduate School of Education and Counseling, and I train Clinical Supervisors through the Center for Community Engagement. I am trained in Counseling Psychology and the Humanistic traditions, and I’ve spent more than 30 consecutive years counseling in community mental health settings. In counseling, I work with a variety of people, specializing in child and family therapy. Through a Family Systems lens, my experience has helped me understand the value and growth potential in all relationships, forming the primary basis of my approaches in both counseling and clinical supervision.
