Some of the areas in which I can best offer support include:

  • Presence and personhood of the therapist
  • Understanding ethical and professional standards (e.g. boundaries, confidentiality, dual relationships, fees, record keeping, risk management, termination issues, etc.)
  • Case conceptualization and management
  • Integrating experiential and somatic approaches into professional practice
  • Working with client ‘core material’; understanding and addressing trauma and attachment woundings
  • Couples and relationship counseling
  • Interpersonal process group planning and facilitation; group dynamics and development
  • Working with counter-transference, vicarious traumatization, and professional burnout

My primary goal is to help you build the confidence and expertise needed to more effectively steward your clients’ own growth and healing.  I provide support for the inevitable anxieties that accompany this work and a sense of possibility born out of our collaboration.  My approach to clinical consultations and supervision draws on humanistic, developmental, psychodynamic, experiential, somatic, trauma-informed, and systemic traditions.  I aim to provide culturally sensitive supervision and welcome supervisees from all walks of life – regardless of race, ethnicity, gender identity, affectional orientation, religion, physical ability, and body size.  

For LPC and LMFT licensees, clinical consultation hours may count towards your continuing education requirements.

Please note that I limit my supervision services to supervisees working within my areas of competence.  These areas include individual, couples, and group counseling for adults experiencing mild to moderate distress related to personal and relationship concerns, anxiety, and event-based traumatic experiences.  I also limit my supervision to supervisees working with clients who are physically located in the state of Oregon at the time of their counseling and therapy services.

For students of the Somatic Experiencing Professional Training, note that I am not an approved case consultation provider for Somatic Experiencing International. Our clinical consultation hours cannot count towards your SEP requirements.
