David is a phenomenal teacher!
- Ann Bixler
I had considered other training options including self paced home study but I’m glad I selected LPC Training with David. I thought a live interactive training would better suit my learning style and it did not disappoint. The interactive nature of David’s training with the focus on relationship and trust building appears to be a good foundation for preparing to mentor trainees. The training was a great way to connect with peers across the state and engage in collaborative learning. David provided lots of resources and ideas regarding forms and record keeping that won’t have me searching the web or recreating the wheel. Highly recommend.

I just completed David Frobish’s supervision training class. The class convened on 5 Saturdays from 9:00 – 3:30. The thought of enduring long days of teaching over zoom could extensively seem exhausting for the brain, but not in this class. David structured his class in a way that engaged his students using multiple teaching modes to match every different type of learning style. Whether it be straight lectures, collaborative problem solving, sharing of personal experiences, or discussions in breakout groups, the content was most relevant and important to our counseling profession. David was strategic in how he selected and emphasized the necessary nuggets that were obviously extracted from volumes of material needed for teaching good and effective clinical supervision skills. I was not as well informed until taking his class. The content that he distributed will help me as I move forward in my own work as a supervisor. Moreover, the content that will serve as continual sources of reinforcement, knowledge, and encouragement. I am grateful to have taken his class.

You’ve been consistent throughout, great interaction with participants and it feels like when we share it actually matters. Other trainings have felt like ‘okay next, okay next’.

It’s not just one thing, I learn throughout this workshop. I truly enjoy when [we] breakout into small groups because it allows my colleagues and I to have dialogue and share concepts and skills with each other.

Very happy with [the] experience. Can’t wait to put this to good use.
- Christina Zurkiwskyj
This training was insightful and helpful. I especially appreciated the interactive opportunities and the high level of participant interaction in sharing experiences and lessons learned. I also appreciated the fact that you [David] took comments and ideas from the group and incorporated it into your presentation for future groups. It shows you’re open to learning and growing too. . .no one has fully arrived and we can all learn something from each other! What a great opportunity you have to hear from each of your training groups and to build your toolbox of ideas!
- Bethany Vukusic
Thanks, David. This training exceeded my expectations. I will reflect back often on what I learned.
- Jennifer E. Mitchell
I thoroughly enjoyed this entire week of training. I met a lot of great people; with different backgrounds and perspectives that helped me learn a lot about myself. Both David and De were knowledgeable, as well as entertaining. I would highly recommend this training to other LPCs looking to move into supervision.
- Brenda Rayle
David! Your Metaphors are Awesome!! David, you are a master group facilitator. I’ve learned a lot just watching you. Great job!
- Josephine Cervantes
The design of the course, along with the information and your modeling and encouragement, gives me confidence. I can work from what I currently know while understanding that I will always be increasing and adapting my knowledge, and improving my skills. The instructor is encouraging and effectively modeled what he taught. He has an amazing memory of what participants have said, and created reflective statements in our discussions that neatly and intelligently summarized our thoughts. The training felt like an easy-to-remember, pleasant conversation. Thank you! This has to be one of my most positive training experiences to date.
- Lyn Spence
David provides a comprehensive and unique approach to supervisor training.
- Ryan Miller
Been considering supervision training? Can’t go wrong with this one!
- Stacey Crane
David created a safe and welcoming space that allowed for high participation. The handouts and small groups were great for different learning styles. [It was a] great training! Instructor has knowledge of theories, concepts and field experience. Time is used effectively!
- Felipe Trevino
Love your humor, acceptance and nonjudgmental attitude, makes learning fun.
- Lorie Hershberger
Our trainer David paces the class well and encourages lively discussions. We went deeper than expected with our conversations. My regret is that this is not a semester class. It is energizing to be around a competent instructor. Supervision is an opportunity to be mindful, reflective, supportive with a winning plan in place. Thanks for all the practical ways to implement this process toward excellent practices in Supervision. The best choice I made to fine tune my skills and David’s class offers best practices that support this profession. It is so worth it!
- Nancy Warnars
This course provides a wealth of knowledge to the profession for up and coming supervisors. The instructor was open and relatable to everyone in the course and made everyone feel welcome.”
- Deana Harris
This is a valuable training for new and seasoned LPCs!
- Sharon Windfrey
You [David] really are an excellent instructor David. You pull everyone in and make sure everyone has a voice. You also treat us all as colleagues which is very important.
- Raizel Weiss Heitzer
This training was well worth it.
- Bob King
You [David] were very calm, encouraging and provided a space for everyone to share. Very positive and also challenged in a way that promoted growth and self-reflection.
- Ashley Constantine
I cannot believe how much I learned in this course! I feel much more confident about being a supervisor. This course is a must for anyone wanting to be a supervisor.
- Shelly Tjapkes
I felt validated as well as learned so much!
- Vicki Dandridge
[David gives] great examples and constructive feedback. While the information presented on the handouts is great and necessary, David is best when he speaks about those things without following exactly what is written and has a conversation about them.
- Katelynn Miller
It [the training] was engaging and presenter does well with managing the group and logistics. I really enjoy the breakout sessions and I appreciate how [the] presenter provides meaningful responses that offer clarification. I like that the presenter seems to model and provide motivation/validation during interactions. I have already learned a lot in a format that I wasn’t so sure would be as effective as in person for the subject matter. I feel that I will be prepared and have a good grasp of how to be an effective supervisor.
- Carmel McKentry
I have greatly appreciated the thoroughness of the material presented and the generosity of the trainer for providing useable forms and templates for trainees to customize and use right away! I enjoyed the discussion on strategies for initial sessions. It was helpful seeing the steps allocated to ‘things to do prior to’ in compassion to ‘things to cover.’ I can see this [as] a useful checklist to incorporate into each supervisee’s file to ensure that I covered everything intended.
- Kristina Princinsky
David is an excellent and thoughtful trainer. The training was well planned, challenging and fun. I would highly recommend this training for effective supervision.
- Gwendolyn Pettway
The most important thing I’ve learned is that being a supervisor is a lot more risky than just being a counselor, because I must be able to trust the Supervisee to take good care of our clients. The supervisor role is not one to be taken lightly and we put our professional license at risk when we take on a supervisee, so we must be careful to choose supervisees wisely and make sure we do our due diligence in providing a high quality supervision experience for the safety and well-being of all parties involved (the clients, the supervisees, and myself). This was a great reminder for me today, because in the past when supervising an intern, I chose someone who was not safe and I had to take action to end the internship. I see now that I hadn’t taken the time to really screen them and I assumed they were appropriate just because they had a master’s degree. At the beginning of this training, I was feeling a bit embarrassed about admitting to not having good discernment when choosing that intern. Today, I don’t feel embarrassed about it anymore, because I am grateful for the lesson it taught me on how important it is to make sure proper protocol is followed to do my due diligence in gatekeeping and empowering new counselors to be successful 🙂
- Laura Perez-Stylez
This was a great training. David is a great presenter and cares about everyone’s experience.
- Kyana Magee-Houston
I enjoyed all of the small group discussions with my new group. They brought very interesting perspectives and gave me new things to consider. I can appreciate the ongoing discussion about self-care for the supervisor and supervisee.
- Kelly McGhee
The discussion is always my favorite part, just hearing other perspectives.I enjoy both the small and large groups – small is nice to feel more conversational, but large is nice to hear how different small groups interpreted the same question perhaps in different ways.
- Julia Dudewicz
He is a very kind and warm group leader.
- Margaret Fedder
Take the course! He’s a very caring & experienced trainer.
