Supervision for

New and Seasoned Psychotherapists

 

As a professional therapist with over 12 years of experience, I believe my role as a supervisor centers around supporting the individual therapist’s deepening sense of character and professional identity. With each session, there’s always something new to learn: each clinical situation offers new challenges with the possibity for new insights.  We will both learn new strategies for helping our clients as we work together.

 

My Approach

Understanding my work with you as a colleague rather than a “supervisee” informs my approach as I cultivate a collegial and consultative role in our work together. We will co-create a safe space to freely and openly discuss your thoughts, feelings, and beliefs about therapy and helping clients. We will attend to any topic related to your practice, and we will cultivate both openness to new techniques and a conscientious relationship to the received ethical wisdom and traditions of our professional community.

 

Since our therapeutic relationship with our clients forms the very foundation that supports the possibilities of change, growth, and healing in our clients, we will explore your work in all its configurations: working with difficult or resistant individuals; interpreting your individual psychological states; becoming more comfortable with using your own sensitivity and emotional response (transference and counter-transference); and the role of the therapist in experiential therapy.

 

In my own work, some approaches I use include EMDR, mindfulness, Emotionally Focused Therapy, depth therapy, and other personality tools such as the Enneagram. I practice in a community of seasoned professional helpers at Rock Springs PCCC, Inc.
