Clinical Oversight During Residency

As required by the Regulations and Laws Governing the Practice of Counseling in Virginia, you are hereby provided supervision information regarding our Resident in Counseling, Tamika Lord to help assure you of the quality of her services and to provide a reporting mechanism for comments or concerns you might want to bring to her supervisor’s attention. Resident in Counseling receives Clinical Supervision Services from Sherry M. Todd, PhD, LPC, ATR-BC, CTS, TFTdx

Clinical Supervision incorporates all aspects of clinical practice with a focus on client case reviews, discussion of current issues, best interventions, and methods that will address suffering.  In supervision, the Resident overviews her cases with her supervisor and receives guidance, correction, and suggestions, thus ensuring that the client receives the best care the Resident can offer, and the best care that her supervisor can offer. It is like having two highly qualified therapists working on your case at once. As her Clinical Supervisor, Dr. Sherry Todd is  also the person to contact if you have questions or concerns about her practices. If so, we encourage you to address your concerns with Tamika first. Most of the time, a simple discussion can address issues. However, if your concern or need cannot be address by Tamika, please contact Dr. Todd at your convenience using the information provided below:

Sherry M. Todd, PhD, LPC, ATR-BC, CTS, TFTdx

Write to her at: P.O. BOX 1555,  Virginia Beach VA 23451

Please state in your message or letter the issue or topic of your report (e.g. commending
