Supervision is the practice of meeting regularly with another mental health professional using training, knowledge and skills to discuss casework and other professional issues in a structured way. The purpose is to assist the practitioner to learn from the supervisors experience and expertise, as well as to ensure good service to the client or patient.
I am available to supervise masters and doctoral level practitioners who want supervision while accruing licensing hours. This can be done as an adjunct to their existing work or on a “use of license” contract basis. I also provide supervision to licensed professionals seeking additional supervision support.
In instances where there is enough need, supervision can additionally be offered in group format.
The focus of supervision varies depending on the supervisee’s needs and can range from nuts and bolts psychotherapy skills to more advanced supervision topics such as examining one's self in role, issues of transference, ethical considerations and more complex client presentations.
