Meet the Supervisor
Qualified as a clinical supervisor in both Marriage & Family Therapy and Mental Health Counseling, I provide clinical supervision to registered interns seeking licenses in MFT and MHC in the state of Florida and to those seeking dual licenses (no additional fees).
As supervision is a necessary component of clinical practice at all stages of professional development, I also provide clinical supervision and support for licensed psychotherapists and practicing clinical supervisors in the non-profit, military and private sectors with utmost confidentiality.
With Masters and Specialists (Psy.D equiv.) degrees in both Marriage and Family Therapy and Mental Health Counseling (from the University of Florida, with honors) and Florida licenses in both, I offer training and supervision in both intrapsychic (including psychodynamic/analytic) and inter-relational approaches to therapy.
Trained in a Task-Oriented Model of Supervision, supervision at Oceanside Family Therapy includes mastering technical skills and developing an integrated personal model of therapy in addition to a case presentation format. I offer a therapist-centered approach to supervision, supporting the therapists’ personal and professional needs in relation to their practice of psychotherapy and clinical development.
Contracted with several federal and non-profit agencies I provide or have provided ongoing clinical supervision to therapists at numerous military and non-profit agencies including: Gateway Community Services (served as in-house Clinical Director of TPC residential treatment, Detox and Adolescent Outpatient Programs); the Youth Crisis Center; Camelot Community Care; Family Foundations; United States Navy/Naval Hospital Jacksonville; Beaches Resource Center; Department Of Veterans Affairs; Breakthroughs Recovery; River Region; Daniel Kids; and to therapists in private practices.
In promotion of professional responsibility and activity in the field, I have proudly served on the Board of Directors of the Florida Association for Marriage and Family Therapy as the Ethics Committee Co-Chair; the Northeast Florida Association for Marriage and Family Therapy, as the President & President Emeritus; and the Foundation & Oversight Committees of the Beaches Resource Center, A Full Service School.
I also serve as an in-house consultant at my husband's law firm, Story Griffin, Attorneys at Law, and have constant access to legal advice for difficult, legally impacted cases.
Nicole Story, Ed.S, M.Ed, LMFT, LMHC, President of Oceanside Family Therapy & Assessments, has been providing therapy and clinical supervision for over 20 years.
"Originally from Ireland, I offer a non-judgmental and supportive approach to therapy and clinical supervision with individuals from a wide variety of backgrounds and cultures."
