My approach to Supervision

Collaboration and Relationship

Over my career, I have supervised and managed in many settings.  I've run non-profit programs, supervised interns and associates, and have taught in graduate programs for students at UCLA, USC, LMU, and UCB.  The framing for supervision and management follow my approach to clinical and professional practice:  Collaboration and Relationship.

I provide space for a supervisee to find their own process and develop their own autonomy in their work.  As a dynamic therapist, so much of our work requires personal reflection, honesty, brave steps, and growth. My goal is to come along side someone and support them in their professional passions and areas of learning.  I am also an employer as well as a supervisor, so balancing these roles requires communication and respect cultivated in a working relationship. I am willing to have active and open conversations about a supervisee's experience and welcome such dialog.

I have a passion for supporting folks with historically marginalized intersectional identities as a way to hold an anti-racist and anti-oppression lens.  Such professionals, like myself, are doing important work to re-shape the essential field of mental health into one with an anti-oppression and truly healing field of work.   We, however, face many barriers and stressors in our field. This is why providing a rich, depth-oriented, and positive learning environment acts as a key focus of mine. My hope for this group is to create an environment of community, connection, and lasting professional relationships.
