Supervision for LMFT-Associates
LMFT & Art Therapy Supervision
I am available to provide supervision for both LMFT-Associates and for art therapists working towards the ATR credential.
What to expect:
As a supervisor, I empower my supervisees to build confidence in their clinical intuition, develop strong therapeutic skills, and integrate a variety of effective treatment models. It is my goal to support you in developing your own clinical style and professional identity, offering the guidance, training, and structure that is needed for that development.
All supervisees are offered both individual and group supervision.
Supervision rates - $85/individual session, $55/group session
I completed my MFT and Art Therapy program at Loyola Marymount University in 2007 and have been supervising as an LMFT-S since 2016. I currently work primarily with children and teens (and a few adults) in my private practice, specializing in depression, anxiety, and trauma. In addition, I facilitate art therapy groups for the Rock Springs "Changes" PHP/IOP program, working with both adults and adolescents.
Before private practice, my practicum placements and agency employment included school-based services, residential/group home foster care, home-based services for youth on probation, community mental health, and inpatient art therapy groups.
My clinical approach is integrative, drawing on my knowledge and interests in cognitive behavior therapy, art therapy, play therapy, family systems, narrative therapy, and trauma-informed care. For trauma therapy I am trained in TF-CBT and EMDR. I am currently interested in pursuing more learning in Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Internal Family Systems, and body-based approaches.
Who I work well with:
I enjoy working with supervisees who are motivated, introspective and self-aware, pursue ongoing learning, have an interest in creative and experiential approaches to therapy, and value considering different perspectives of a situation. As my primary clinical experience and knowledge is in working with children, teens, and families, I can best support supervisees who are interested in working with these populations.
In considering a good fit for supervision, I encourage you to think about how my theoretical orientation, training, and knowledge fit with your own clinical interests. I will never dictate that you work from a certain approach, but may encourage you to try new ideas and interventions to help expand your clinical toolkit. If you are wanting development in an area that I am less knowledgeable in, you would need to be open to pursuing additional training and reading.
Private practice development:
For associates interested in private practice, I provide support and knowledge in marketing, niche development, and social media to build a successful and fulfilling business.
Office use is available in my private practice suite for additional cost. The office suite has two furnished rooms, including one that is large enough for groups. Office use may be reserved by the hour as needed or larger blocks of time may be reserved. Please let me know if you are interested in arranging office use time.
LMFT-Associates and other therapists that share the office space can choose to have a profile listed on the North Austin Therapy website as well.
