Clinical Supervision provides an opportunity to deepen your clinical skills and deepen your practice as clinicians beyond theories and strategies. Theories and strategies aside, while lending to the importance of professional and competent practice, connecting with clients and understanding who they are beyond their presenting behaviors or diagnosis and who YOU are-your blind spots, assumptions, and beliefs about clients and philosophies of change are essential to this privileged role we hold as therapists.
My approach to Supervision is similar to my approach to therapy, in that I value collaboration and relationship as essential to the Supervision process that is based on respect, authenticity, and transparency. Drawing from my skills and experiences as a Therapist and Educator, I will support you to get curious about your clients on a deeper level beyond their presenting issues while supporting you in your growth and individual needs as a therapist and to develop an insight-oriented, intentional, and compassionate way of both understanding and being with clients in ways that honor their individuality, need for autonomy, and the need for therapists to dig deeper with them, beyond strategies and solutions.
If you would like to be challenged, supported and learn to support your clients from a bottom up, going within approach to creating change, I may be a fit for you.
I embody a relational, and process-oriented approach through a trauma-informed lens to Supervision and hold deep regard for the unique experiences of individuals. As such, I recognize that everyone brings their own strengths, knowledge, and potential to the Supervision process. Maintaining respect for your individual needs and experiences through a supportive and engaging framework is fundamental to my Supervisory style.
My 18 years of combined experience as a Therapist, Supervisor, College Professor, and Child and Youth Practitioner have taught me the importance of considering the client's needs from a holistic and trauma-informed perspective. I have extensive experience working with children, adolescents, adults, and families and have learned that authentic engagement is about being present, genuine, and curious when building relationships. Further to this, the importance of maintaining healthy boundaries, committing to new learning and Professional Development, engaging in reflective practice, and dialoguing about ethical practice is essential to effective and competent practice as Therapists. Our work is truly a privilege to uphold.
!f you are seeking opportunities to engage in your practice through a reflexive and relational lens while connecting to the values you hold as a clinician and Therapist, and would like to expand on discussions about ethical practice, I invite you to reach out to discuss further.
My qualifications meet the supervisory standards established by the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario.
I offer individual, dyadic and group superivision for seasoned, developing and qualifying Psychotherapists, Social Workers and Mental Health Clinicians.Additionally, I provide supervision to students who are in need of an external site supervisor where there practicum site may not offer CRPO-approved supervisors.
Individual (60 minutes at $120) and Dyadic Supervision (90 minutes at $100)
Individual supervision is offered to therapists and clinicians who are looking to build upon their current clinical skills and to engage in the use of self through a compassionate curious lens of inquiry that highlights bias, values, and theoretical philosophies while delving into the human aspect of our role. I strongly value and support transparency in supervision and provide the space to support, co-create learning opportunities, and mentor supervisees in a way that considers both the well-being of clients and your professional and personal development as individuals.
External Site Supervision (60 minutes at $100)
Weekly individual sessions to support your learning goals through case reviews, modeling of skills, and reviews of documentation is offered. I work in conjuction with your practicum site supervisor to ensure your learning needs are both identified and supported as required by your program.
There is value in strength in numbers. Group supervision provides a valuable way to connect and learn from other therapists regardless of their time in practice. Sharing and discussing different theoretical viewpoints and clinical styles provides a valuable learning experience for everyone.
