Calling all counselling students, art therapy students, Registered Psychotherapists and Art Therapists! Looking for a clinical supervisor to help you be the best mental health provider you can be?
Clinical supervision is a requirement for therapists beginning their practice and considered ethical practice for more experienced counsellors as well. Supervision can bring a new perspective to your work with clients in identifying dilemmas, finding new approaches, problem-solving, or simply a source of outlet in a high-stress profession.
My approach is one of person-centered psychodynamic therapy with the option to incorporate art into our work. Supervision is a place to be vulnerable as a practitioner, express fears or challenges in practice and grow professionally. My goals as a supervisor is to help you reach your professional goals, bring forward your innate talents as a helping professional and help you build your skills and confidence.
We are collaborators in your supervision, meaning that I am following your goals and your needs in supervision to enhance the safety and care of your clients. I typically recommend bi-monthly supervision meetings but I’m happy to flow with what you feel you need.
I am a member of the CRPO in good standing since April 2015, a member of the College of Nurses of Ontario since 2001, and a licensed psychiatric nurse with the Canadian Nurses Association since 2003. I hold a PhD in Psychology at Walden University focusing on the ethical implications of online practice as well as a licensed art therapist with the Canadian Art Therapy Association. I have met the competencies related to supervision as required by the CRPO and have participated in group supervision as well as received individual supervision for many years.
Currently, I am supervising Masters of Counselling students as well as art therapy students and am happy to expand my services to new and experienced therapists.
