I offer supervision services for individuals at various stages of post-graduate training pre- and post- licensure. I am on the Supervisor Registry for the Oregon Board of Licensed Professional Counselors and Therapists (OBLPCT).
Please contact me for more information about my current availability and fees for supervision and/or consultation services.
My approach to supervision is psychodynamic and integrative. I draw from my integrative approach to psychotherapy because psychotherapy and supervision are considered closely related processes in the psychodynamic model of supervision. Thus, exploration and understanding of parallel process during supervision and the supervisee’s countertransference dynamics with clients are important aspects of supervision.
Integrative models of supervision are tailored to the developmental and individual needs of the supervisee at different stages of supervision. For example, in Bernard’s Discrimination Model (DM) the roles of the supervisor cycle through “teacher, counselor and consultant” as needed during the supervisory relationship. Another example is the Integrative Wellness Model (IWM), which emphasizes the value of supporting the supervisee’s development of wellness and personal/professional well-being in supervision. Supervisee well-being is extremely important because their personal well-being influences many aspects of supervisee training including engagement in education, development of a therapist identity and therapeutic orientation, experiences with working with clients, and the processes of psychotherapy and supervision.
I started my solo private practice immediately after graduate school, despite this being generally discouraged. I want to support other clinicians pursuing this path, at any point along the way. I offer professional consultation for therapists in private practice regarding depth-oriented case conceptualizations, complicated clinical issues and/or issues related to operating a solo private practice.
