Interns, Counselors, and Therapists
Offering individual supervision, case conferences and consultation focusing on a variety of topics and interventions.
I have 30+ years experience as a therapist and clinical supervisor in non-profit and private practice settings.
As a supervisor and teacher, my nature lends itself to a the creation of a warm and interactive environment. I am sensitive to students’ diverse learning styles and degrees of experience. My openness, and humor help people to feel safe regardless of the material they bring to the sessions. I am deeply committed to fostering an unfolding of students’ psychological and emotional understanding of themselves as they learn to foster that in others.My theoretical approach is an eclectic one, as I draw from my many years of experience working in a variety of community based as well as private practice settings. I am well versed in many theoretical orientations, yet, what I believe is most essential, is my openness and flexibility when navigating and collaborating on a therapeutic direction.
