I love supervising and consulting! I have over ten years of experience supervising MFT and MSW interns and licensed professionals. I have supervised individuals and groups at agencies, hospitals, and Humboldt State University in the master's program for counseling psychology. Currently, two Associate MFTs are interning in my private practice, and I contract with individual professionals and local agencies for customized supervision and consultation.
My supervision style, akin to my clinical style, is warm, engaging, supportive, reflective, and person-centered. Creating a safe, supportive, collaborative, and fun supervision relationship is critical for personal and professional growth. We are able to fulfill greater potential when we feel connected, supported, and seen. My supervision approach is informed by reflective practice principles and ranges from collaborative to directive depending on the needs and wants of the supervisee. I am a Certified Supervisor in Emotionally Focused Therapy and in the process of becoming a Certified Reflective Practice Supervisor. The modalities and interventions that most influence my clinical approach include emotionally focused therapy, internal family systems, person-centered, reflective practice, trauma-responsive, somatic/experiential, mindfulness, and psychodynamic.
