Finding a good supervisor is similar to finding a good psychotherapist. You want someone supportive and understanding, yet challenging at the same time. Supervision is so vital to our work because we need an objective set of eyes to help us recognize our countertransference with our patients. We are all human and have human reactions to our patients, their lives, and our role in their lives–regardless of our level of expertise. In my work with therapists I help them to recognize and express these dynamics so that they can be there for their patients without getting in the way of the healing.
I also offer group supervision to therapists. It is an excellent way to experience, in vivo, those things that can be triggering. The power of the group is the vehicle of understanding and change.
In today’s world of psychotherapy, there are new modalities appearing every year. Depending on the work you do and the clients you see, you want to be able to consult with someone that is familiar with the modalities that you work with. In my development as a clinician, I have trained and gained proficiency in a number of modalities that give me a comprehensive approach to most issues and populations. These include but are not limited to CBT, EMDR, Ego State Therapy, Hypnosis, Emotionally Focussed Therapy for couples, Somatic Interventions, and psychodynamic approaches.
If you’re looking to grow as a clinician and become an even better therapist, call to schedule a free phone consultation.
