Participating in supervision is probably one of the most important aspects a therapist can engage in to ensure the continued success of their practice, avoid burnout, and provide excellent clinical services to clients. I am an Approved Supervisor and a Clinical Member of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy.
I thoroughly enjoy providing clinical supervision for therapists at all stages of their careers. I have supervised Syracuse University Counseling and Human Service’s student interns at the Syracuse University Counseling Center. I also have supervised graduate students at Syracuse University's Marriage and Family Therapy program and at several different internship sites. Further, I supervise post-graduate therapists within my private practice and work with MFT supervisors in need of an approved AAMFT supervisor to provide supervision of supervision.
I also provides clinical supervision for seasoned therapists who are in need of support, advice, brainstorming, or who want to work through client issues and develop new skills.
My model of supervision is adaptable to many different theoretical orientations. The framework of my approach utilizes a systems perspective. I emphasize “self-of-the-therapist” work, which focuses on personal issues that may hinder working effectively with clients. I strive to provide a direct, caring, and professional environment that facilitates open communication and growth. Clinical supervision is provided on an ongoing or on an as-needed basis.
