I am an American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (AAMFT) Approved Supervisor and am qualified to offer both group and individual supervision. Due to having been licensed for over five years, I can currently supervise licensure candidates for Marriage and Family Therapists and Professional Counselors.
My philosophy of supervision is that there is a bidirectional process to supervision; I learn from you as much as you learn from me. I welcome you to challenge me. Odd, I know! However, growth is a process. If something is not working, tell me so that I can shift, or allow me to continue so that your clinical and professional edge can continue to grow in the midst of the process. What I can say is that supervision is one of my joys. As such, I appreciate your feedback and commitment to continually grow in this field.
My approach to supervision is similar to that of my approach to working with clients—eclectic! I believe that everything that goes with being a therapist belongs in the supervision process:
Person of the Therapist Issues
Education (on models, theories, interventions, etc.)
How to start a practice and other business-related issues
Studying for the MFT exam
Mindfulness & Meditation
And whatever else you need to bring to the supervision session for that day!
At the end of our supervision, I want to ensure that you have confidence in your abilities to help your clients. I want to make sure that you feel supported, that you are prioritizing your self-care and that you are growing your clinical edge at the same time. Like therapy, supervision with me will push you, sometimes harder than you'd like, but the end product will be remarkable. I Have supervised interns, clinicians who are seeking licensure, and clinicians that have held their license. I also bring the uniqueness of being a person of color and will challenge my clinicians to explore the cultural factors that may enter the room in therapy.
I currently offer Individual Supervision which can be completed individually. The cost for Individual Supervision is $100/clinical hour and I schedule Individual Supervision in two (2) clinical hour blocks (1.5 hours on the clock), meeting every other week (or an average of twice per month).
Individual Supervision is scheduled based on the schedule of the individual.
If you are interested in Individual Supervision, please contact me to get the process going. Once you contact me I will set up a phone interview (usually 20 minutes or so) and then invite you in for a face-to-face interview (usually lasting 45-50 minutes). After this, I like to give both of us a few days to think about the interview to make sure it’s a good fit for both of us. If I feel that you would be a good fit for how I do supervision, I will contact you and invite you to that process; if you feel that I would be a good fit for you, please accept the invitation!
