supervision


So continue to explore.  Continue to dig deep into the things that have been pulling on your heart strings.  Keep asking questions.  Keep following your curiosity. - Morgan Harper Nichols

Why supervision + consultation?

Within the world of attachment-based therapy, we also find that therapists themselves learn and develop in profound ways when they feel supported and attached.  This kind of connection can happen in one-on-one settings or with groups.  My hope in offering supervision and consultation is that therapists feel encouraged and challenged, not just in their work with clients but in how they are developing as helping professionals and who they are becoming as people.

Do I need supervision/consultation?

Oftentimes, clinicians and helping professionals request supervision/consultation for the following reasons:

  • Wanting to grow in their skills and understanding
  • A requirement of a specific certification process (i.e. becoming a certified EFT therapist)
  • Desiring to learn and grown within the context of a group of peers
  • Feeling stuck, burned out, or overwhelmed by their role as a helping professional
  • Needing support with a specific case
