Counseling for individuals, couples, and families

Experienced AAMFT Approved Supervision

Clinical Supervision

Whether you work in your own private practice, in a group setting or in an agency, there is value in clinical supervision. If you work in an agency, private supervision provides an opportunity to explore self of the therapist work in a confidential environment as well as a systemic perspective. For licensed clinicians, we still need to meet with someone to ensure that we are engaged in ethical, boundary driven, best practice care.

My experience includes mentoring interns, new clinicians working towards licensure, experienced clinicians working on their AAMFT Approved Supervisor status, systemic and relational supervision for mental health counselors and social workers. Additionally, I have some experience in supervising individuals who have been sanctioned by the state board of registration.

Experienced AAMFT Approved Supervisor: Why choose someone who is AAMFT Approved? Because it means I have specific training to supervise and I have to engage in supervision learning to maintain my status. You don't have to be an MFT to think relationally or to want to improve your ability to work relationally - if you provide family therapy or couples therapy, supervision can include learning about the different family therapy models and what may be helpful for the systems you are working with as well as understanding how to navigate the complexities of managing the needs of multiple individuals in the therapy room.

Because we live in a fast paced challenging world, I strive to offer a variety of ways to meet. I provide traditional in person office supervision, secure video chat supervision, and yes, I offer supervision out in the paddock with the horses!
