Clinical supervision

The more we learn to operate in the world based on trust in our intuition, the stronger our channel will be and the more money we will have.

As a Registered Clinical Counsellor, I am qualified to offer clinical supervision. During my 20 years working as a therapist, I have benefited from excellent supervision in both California and Vancouver.

My Supervision Style is based on the following:

  • Support and empathy
  • Increasing your confidence in your clinical decisions
  • Alleviating the weight of your sense of responsibility
  • Maintenance of appropriate balance and boundaries
  • Stimulation of your inner resources to expand on your therapeutic options
  • Reflective responses to highlight your feelings, e.g. anxiety; over-involvement; fatigue from responsibility overload
  • Feedback regarding theoretical consistency in your approach

My Supervision Style Is Informed by My Work Experience:

  • 6 years as a residential counsellor for chronically mentally ill patients in crisis requiring assessment, supervised daily activities of living, individual counselling, case management and 2 therapy groups per day.
  • Crisis intervention
  • Adolescents in residential settings
  • Family Services – VISAC (Vancouver Incest and Sexual Abuse Centre) – Child and Family Therapist
  • Drug & Alcohol programs
  • Teaching: Personal Development; Relationships; Communication; Assertiveness; Finding Goals & Direction
  • In private practice – adults, couples, and parents & children – depression, anxiety, recent and historical trauma from abuse, sexual assault, accidents and loss, parenting, parenting after separation, grief, transitions including divorce and career change, and creative blocks
People who love their work love life.
