Adding a supervisor to SimplePractice

1. Add the Supervisor

2. Assign the Supervisor to yourself as an Intern

3. How your Supervisor logs in

3. How supervisors log in

Your supervisor will receive an email asking them to create a unique login to access your account:

Email asking supervisor to log into SimplePractice


Once your supervisor clicks on the link they will be asked to create a unique username and password for access to your account.

Supervisors must create a unique log-in to get into SimplePractice

Important details to know:

  • Your supervisor must use an email address that is unique within SimplePractice. If your supervisor has their own personal SimplePractice account, they must use a different email address when creating a login to access each account they have supervisor access to so they can supervise each intern, trainee, and/or clinician.
  • Make sure to sign and share your notes so that your supervisor is able to view them to sign them. Keep in mind that once you lock your notes, you will not be able to edit them.
