Congratulations on Your Next Step!
I know that getting this far in your journey includes many sacrifices, growing pains, frustrations, and lots of precious time. Entering the next step to becoming a fully licensed therapist is a huge milestone. Finding the right 'fit' for supervision is an extremely important component in this process. I am passionate about mentoring and developing therapists. The relationship between supervisor and supervisee is a sacred one.
My experience as a clinician is varied. I have worked in and supervised therapists in a variety of different population settings including: inpatient dual diagnosis for adults and adolescents, intensive outpatient programs for chronically mentally ill adult clients, forensic settings, community mental health, private practice, and couples and marital counseling. My specialties are working with trauma utilizing various techniques and modalities of treatment and working with couples/relationships.
As a supervisor, I am looking for therapists who primarily want to work in private practice once they complete their internship, who are deeply interested in continuing to learn and grow in a specialty, and who are interested in their personal growth as they learn the art of psychotherapy. I think of my role as threefold: I am a business mentor, helping my interns navigate growing, marketing, and running a small business. I am a clinical teacher and consultant: in this role, I want to teach clinical tools, offer an ethical sounding board and process clinical cases. I am also a mentor for the human side of the therapist: in this role, I function as half therapist, half supervisor as we explore countertransference issues, self-care, your view of yourself as a therapist, and how to create the work/life balance that will promote longevity in this field.
I require a lot more than many supervisors and my interns work very hard. They also have an abundance of clients, set their own fees, and are earning plenty of direct hours towards their internship totals.
If after reviewing this you think we’d make a good fit, follow the steps below and I will contact you regarding the possibility of working together.
