Support for Therapists through Supervision
My goal in supervision is to provide other therapists with a safe and confidential environment in which they can reflect on and discuss their work with clients and their personal and professional responses to this work. My focus is on supporting them in their personal and professional development while helping them to protect and promote client welfare.
You may be interested in supervision if
- You feel stuck or stale in your work.
- You are unsure how you want to move forward with a client or clients.
- You want to explore self-of-the-therapist issues that are arising for you in your work.
- You want to determine how to maximize and build on what’s going well in your work.
- You need supervision for licensure.
For information about my fee for supervision, please see the Fees/Insurance section of this website.
I have experience supervising other therapists with backgrounds in marriage and family therapy, mental health counseling, and social work, and with a wide range of preferred approaches, including psychodynamic, psychoanalytic, systemic/relational, experiential, and postmodern. My own preferred approaches include collaborative, narrative, and solution-focused, but I am ultimately interested in doing what works for clients. In individual therapy and couples counseling, I often use ideas from cognitive behavioral therapy for anxiety; various models of couples therapy, such as the Gottman Method, Emotionally Focused Therapy, and Imago Therapy; and mindfulness practices, including meditation.
I do supervision one-on-one, in dyads, and in groups. I have also partnered with trusted colleagues to offer workshops for other therapists.
I am an Approved Supervisor through the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy and an Approved Clinical Supervisor through the Center for Credentialing and Education. I also supervise resident therapists who are working on their hours for full licensure as Marriage and Family Therapists and Mental Health Counselors in the Residency Program at the Christian Theological Seminary Counseling Center in Indianapolis, Indiana.
