“I believe "technique" is facilitative when it emanates from the therapist's unique encounter with the patient. Every course of therapy consists of small and large spontaneously generated responses or techniques that are impossible to program in advance.”
― Irvin D. Yalom
Supervision can either be for therapists looking for mentorship while accumulating the hours necessary prior to taking a licensure exam, or as an on-going way for clinicians to receive external supervision to their private practices. Consultation is also available on an as-needed basis for difficult cases.
I, like Yalom, believe that you are the primary tool in therapy. Building your knowledge and expertise, along with a strong trust within yourself, are among the ways we build competence. We do not need to know everything all at once, but, we do need to know how to navigate the unknown. When we trust ourselves, we thrive.
And so do our clients.
As a clinical supervisor, I strive to help you know when to trust your process as a therapist, and when to self reflect and maybe course correct. It is exciting to witness the hunger for therapists to develop their art while also building their repertiore of science, data, and research for which to practice.
