Providing Clinical Supervision


Welcome! My name is James Gurule, a Licensed Professional Counselor, and I am an Approved Supervisor on the Oregon Board of Licensed Professional Counselors and Therapists (OBLPCT) Supervisor Registry. I have extensive training and over 30 years of experience providing clinical supervision. I offer individual, group, and distance clinical supervision for LPC and LMFT Interns seeking licensure, for practicing professional counselors, and supervision of supervision for OBLPCT Supervisor Registry candidates. I also teach the required 30-hour clinical supervisor training for professional counselors and social workers, and I conduct supervision trainings and continuing education workshops through the Center for Community Engagement in the Lewis & Clark Graduate School of Education and Counseling.


I have a master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from the University of Notre Dame (1985), and began my professional counseling supervision training in 1990. I’ve been an Adjunct Faculty member at Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon for over 20 years, teaching Ethics and a variety of other classes in the Graduate School of Education and Counseling.

With my training in counseling psychology and person-centered traditions, I’ve spent more than three decades offering counseling services in community mental health settings. I have provided therapy for children, teens, and families since 1984. 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. At my agency, I am also a Senior Risk Manager, providing on-call clinical consultation.
