Becoming and being a therapist isn’t easy! There is so much to track and manage: our own feelings and reactions, the needs and emotions of our clients, along with all the external factors that influence us. But, like almost everything else in life, we can increase our capacity and skill when we don’t go it alone.
I have sharpened my therapeutic skills and experienced the greatest the gains with clients when I have had supervisors who were nonjudgmental, caring, and able to build an authentic relationship with me. Those influential supervisors taught me that establishing a trusting supervisory relationship is essential to therapist development. This is consistent with my way of practicing as a psychologist: I view all learning and development as occurring within the context of safe connection.
It has been a privilege to provide clinical supervision to trainees, interns and clinicians over my years of practice. I welcome the opportunity to be part of your journey if you are seeking supervision for psychotherapy or assessment.
