Approach to Supervision:
As a clinical supervisor her guiding principle is that therapy, and how we show up for our clients, must be intentional. She helps her supervisees conceptualize cases through 4 lenses: applying research-based theory, taking a systemic focus, being culturally sensitive, and being attuned to both the client’s and the therapist’s state and needs. She supports her supervisees in developing strong assessment skills, and in honing their clinical intuition so that they can facilitate positive change for their clients. Her supervision style challenges the clinician to implement change on multiple levels: nervous, emotional, cognitive, behavioral, and interpersonal. She structures supervision in a way that enables the therapist to explore both the clinical direction as well as their own reactions to the work they are doing. Finally, she strongly focuses on resourcing her supervisees and encourages them to build rich toolkits for themselves and their clients and to channel their creativity into the different ways that they utilize their models and interventions.
