Dr. Wynn Dupkoski


Background and Experience:

I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from Lander University in 2000, where I focused my studies in Counseling Techniques.  There I completed internship requirements working with at-risk youth and teenage pregnancy prevention programs.  I completed the Community Counseling program at Western Carolina University in 2003 (prior to the transition of programs to Clinical Mental Health Counseling). I earned a Ph.D. in Counselor Education and Supervision at the University of South Carolina in May 2013.  I am an active member of the American Counseling Association and the Association for Counselor Education and Supervision. I have been a Licensed Professional Counselor in North Carolina (#5165) since 2005 and in South Carolina (#5178) since 2010. I am also a Licensed Professional Counselor-Supervisor in North Carolina as of December 2012 (#5165-S) and in South Carolina since November of 2012 (#5468). I am also a Licensed Professional Counselor in Missouri (#201314279), where I have recently been approved as a supervisor for LPC interns.

Although my career in the mental health field began in 2000 working with sexually aggressive and reactive youth in residential and community-based settings, my professional counseling experience began in 2004. I have extensive experience that spans many arenas and roles, including serving as a school-based therapist, community support supervisor, in-home therapist, residential therapist, and acute psychiatric hospital therapist.

In these various roles, I have worked with a wide range of clients. I specialize in sexual behaviors, mood disorders, borderline personality disorder, suicidal/self-injurious behaviors and trauma. I have worked with children, adolescents, and adults individually, with families, and in groups. I have extensive training and supervision in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), and Behavior Therapy. In addition, I have received training and supervision in Prolonged Exposure Treatment and training in Trauma-Focused CBT.

Supervision Training:

In 2011, I completed coursework in Counseling Supervision Theory, equivalent to 45 contact hours of clinical supervision training. I have also completed a Supervision Practicum course equivalent to 45 contact hours in which I was provided supervision of my clinical supervision services. Following these two courses, I also received individual supervision of my clinical supervision to meet the requirements for a Licensed Professional Counselor-Supervisor in South Carolina in 2012.

Current Practice:

Currently, I am a full time faculty member in the Counselor Education and Supervision doctoral program at an online university, where my primary course assignments are Clinical Supervision and Teaching in Counselor Education. I also provide clinical supervision and training to counselors seeking licensure in North Carolina. In addition, I am the facilitator for the Sexual Wellness in Counseling Interest Network of the American Counseling Association (ACA).

Whom do I supervise?

I have experience supervising a variety of individuals from those without any clinical training to individuals pursuing their professional licensure within the school, community, and residential settings using predominantly behavioral approaches. My experience working with families allows me to incorporate a systems perspective into the supervision process as well. In addition, my own experience in working with adolescents with sexual behavior problems, conduct-disordered behaviors, and suicidal/self-injurious behaviors provides me with the expertise to provide specialized clinical supervision in these areas.

What to expect in supervision:

Just as counselors encourage their clients to continue on the path of healing themselves, supervisors are responsible for guiding counselors-in-training to familiarize themselves with the terrains that their clients must travel so they may guide their clients. Sometimes this process involves teaching. Sometimes this process involves consulting. Sometimes this process involves counseling. In spite of the role that the supervisor takes, the supervision process always involves thinking dialectically and enhancing the supervisee’s resiliency to counsel.

My approach to supervision will involve an emphasis on meeting your needs with regards to my role and taking a dialectical and trauma-sensitive approach. Based on the discrimination model of supervision, I will either take on a teacher, consultant, or counselor role, which may vary within one supervisory session. It is expected that you will be able to advocate for your needs within the supervisory relationship and be willing to openly discuss both your case conceptualizations and your personal reactions within the counseling role.
