As a clinical supervisor, I aim to help new clinicians grow, learn, and feel challenged and accomplished in their practice. I strive to create and maintain a safe and respectful environment for questions and feedback related to the learning process and other important needs within this very valuable relationship. I am a strengths-oriented clinician, and I encourage balancing respect for the clients’ past experiences with resilience and hope for the future. My supervision style is process oriented, thought-provoking, and receptive. Paired with that style, I make it my priority to provide ethical, sound, and principled practice direction.
My theoretical orientation contains multiple “lenses” that I draw from: Psychodyamic theories, Relational models, Attachment theories, Emotionally-focused perspectives, the Medical model, Developmental, Eastern, Strengths-based, Narrative, Existential, Transpersonal, Cultural, Systems-oriented, and Oppression model. Additionally, I strive to maintain my own ability to be influenced by and learn from each supervisory relationship.
