Clinical Supervision

Dig deeper into clinical issues while exploring and sharpening your sense of identity as a mental health practitioner.

Clinical supervision can give us the perspective, insight and skills that will allow us to better serve our clients.

Similar to my clinical approach, my approach to supervision is strengths-based, person-centered and collaborative. I assist my supervisees in exploring client cases through many lenses and encourage them to consider how aspects of culture, trauma, diversity and power differences impact the therapeutic relationship.

As a music therapist and yoga teacher, I value creative and body-centered approaches to therapy and may incorporate movement and arts-based methods into supervision.

Frequently Asked Questions about Clinical Supervision

What is your supervision experience?
I began supervising first-year music therapy students and creative arts therapy interns in 2012, just a couple years into my first clinical job as a music therapist at a community mental health center. I found the experience of supervising students new to the field to be an enriching and rewarding part of my day, and continued to offer supervision in the field setting until I left that job in 2017. Once I got my LPC and took an agency job, supervision continued to be an integral part of my personal and professional development, both in a professional and peer capacity. I began working with my first LPC candidate supervisee in April of 2020.
What theories or modalities inform your clinical practice?
I consider myself an integrative therapist, and I incorporate multiple modalities into my work with individuals depending on their unique needs and preferences. The modalities that I’ve found to be the most helpful to my clients throughout the years include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Internal Family Systems (IFS), and mindfulness, somatic and compassion focused practices. Music may or may not be incorporated into these modalities, depending on the needs and interests of the client. Regardless of the specific modality I am using, I always consider the impact of trauma. I am currently completing my Level 1 EMDR training and have seen positive results as I begin to offer this evidence-based treatment in sessions.
How is supervision with you different from the supervision I’m getting at my place of employment?
Supervision outside of your place of employment has several benefits, including gaining an outside perspective and not having to potentially censor what you talk about for fear of negative consequences on your employment. You also get to choose who you work with based on style and areas of expertise. Some workplaces and agencies offer supervision that will count toward your licensure hours, but not all. You can be certain that supervision with me will count toward the hours you need to get your license (and in some cases can be combined with supervision you are already getting on the job).
