Who initials corrections on a DA Form 4856?

If I have a typo or incorrect information on a DA 4856 counseling statement, can I make corrections in pen after it has been signed? Who needs to initial these corrections?

While there is no book answer for this issue I would encourage you to have both the Soldier and Counselor initial any corrections.  This eliminates issues down the road.
