Strengthening Clinical Supervisory Skills
Good quality supervision requires skill and support. Therapists grow when their supervisor creates a safe space, and knows how to balance the needs for processing, guidance, being heard, as well as for respectful, direct and honest feedback. I provide insight, scope and hands-on skills to learn how to manage this balance and help you feel more confident and grounded as a supervisor. I also provide case consultation/conceptualization to support your role. Clinical supervision can be a creative, energizing process for both the supervisor and therapist, even in clinic settings where administrative demands on the supervisor are high. Whether you are a new or established supervisor, there's always room to grow! I also offer supervision training to your organization.
I believe that the combination of my training and ability to be in-tune with you can help me facilitate your growth.
I believe in trust, integrity, honesty, respect, ethics, boundaries, and clear communication.
