I am excited that you are considering taking the next step in your journey toward becoming a licensed professional with me as your supervisor. I have found in my own personal experience that having a supervisor who is invested in my growth, knowledgeable, compassionate, and patient can make the experience of supervision one that can be rewarding and incredibly valuable as a developing professional. I believe I embody all of these traits as a supervisor and I work diligently toward meeting your goals and helping you become the psychotherapist you desire to be.
My own journey began as a middle school counselor where I loved working with students and collaborating with staff in how we could best support the students in both their emotional and academic realms. After six years in the middle school environment, I moved into the realm of private practice work for a year before opening my own private practice, Overcomers Counseling. My passion lies in learning and growing as an individual as well as a professional and it is in this capacity that I chose to broaden my horizons and begin working with up and coming professionals who are passionate about getting into the field of psychotherapy and assisting clients in reaching their own mental health goals. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with other professionals in this capacity and I am excited to be a part of the mental health community as a supervisor of supervisees.
I have provided counseling services to individuals, couples, and families. I have worked with children, adolescents, and adults. I have treated clinical problems that include depression, anxiety, adjustment disorders, substance use, marital issues, infidelity, grief and loss, divorce reaction, low self-esteem, and ADHD. I also have experience with parent-child relational problems, academic failure, problematic social media use, and relationship issues. The counseling interventions that I have provided to clients are taken mainly from cognitive-behavior therapy and synergetic play therapy approach; however, I use multiple other modalities in my treatment of clients. My experience is diverse and therefore can benefit a broad array of clients with diverse backgrounds and presenting issues.
The purpose of clinical supervision is to monitor and ensure the welfare of clients, promote the development of supervisees' clinical and professional identity, evaluate the competence of supervisees and fulfill requirements for licensure. It is my belief that as a supervisor I must meet the developmental needs of the supervisee. I often alternate between roles based on the needs of the supervisee. In the beginning, I may take a more direct feedback approach, and as the supervisee gains more experience, my role may change into a more collaborative approach.
In my supervision, I require that students are directly observed by myself while providing counseling services to clients (known as "tele-supervision"). This is to occur one time every three months on a date agreed upon between the supervisor and the supervisee. Tele-supervision is to occur a total of eight times during the span of the two-year supervision experience. The supervisee is required to obtain written permission from their client prior to the tele-supervision taking place and have the signed document uploaded into the client's file.
During the course of completing 100 supervision hours, there are two formats that can be implemented (upon availability):
