My Approach

Obtaining your Associate licensure is a major accomplishment – you’ve devoted an incredible amount of time to your education, practicum and studying to pass the NCE. I would love the opportunity to be a part of the next steps in your journey as a practicing clinician. I believe my duty to you as a supervisee is to serve in the roles of teacher, counselor, consultant and partner. It is imperative to me to be able to provide you with guidance, support and feedback to help you learn the necessary tools to feel confident and competent in performing your role as a clinician. Through collaboration & partnership, together we can accomplish the goal of leading clients to the best possible outcomes.

 

 

My Primary Therapeutic Modalities:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

  • Person-Centered Therapy

  • Solution-Focused Therapy

 

Supervision Methods:

 

 

Case discussion can help me determine if you are successfully conceptualizing a client’s case. In individual supervision, I can provide guidance and feedback on interventions being utilized and I can prompt you to consider additional information and perspectives as you continue to treat the client. In group supervision, your peers can offer feedback and pose thought-provoking questions and other considerations, creating a positive and collaborative environment for you to grow and develop your skills.

 

 

Direct observation (inclusive of reviewing videotapes) during individual supervision will allow me to not only evaluate the content and flow of your session, but also assess any nonverbal cues and body language displayed that can impact the session. In group supervision, I will provide you with the opportunity to share a video clip of one of your sessions and your peers will have the chance to provide feedback on areas of strength and areas of opportunity. My goal in structuring group supervision in this manner is to instill a sense of equality among you and your peers.

 

 

Role playing - By role playing in individual supervision, I can provide you with the opportunity to respond spontaneously to a given client scenario and I can evaluate the therapeutic skills that you use. In group supervision, supervisees can take turns playing the role of the client and counselor and feedback can be provided for different client scenarios. 

 

 

Modeling - In individual supervision, I can demonstrate a particular therapeutic intervention and also explain its components. Afterwards, I can have you model the intervention back with the goal of empowering you to expand your skillset.
