The purpose of this study was to apply a set of guidelines and procedures for efficient and ethical administration of a counselor education and supervision training clinic and assess feasibility of operating such a clinic within the Department of Counselor Education at Adams State University (Lauka & McCarthy, 2013). In order to explore the key considerations in the development and practical application of an on-site Counselor Education and Supervision training clinic, a pilot study was conducted. The pilot study occurred over a period of 24 weeks from August 2019 to January 2020. The study surveyed administration, faculty, staff, counseling students, and client participants and utilized a pre-pilot study and post-pilot study survey. The data collected was used to answer relevant questions and evaluate the outcomes pertaining to the sustainability of a Counselor Education and Supervision training clinic. The findings of the study indicate (a) the significance of administration and faculty interest and buy-in for successful implementation of a counselor education and supervision training clinic, (b) training the staff benefited the operation of the training clinic, (c) student experience was below optimal, and (d) high levels of satisfaction among clients were inferred. Implications of the pilot study and recommendations for future research are discussed.
