Professional Supervision and Consultation

Supervision for beginning therapists and interns is based on a humanistic therapy model. In this model the goal of supervision is:

  • To help new therapists to understand him or herself more fully.
  • To become familiar with identifying and conceptualizing the factors and dynamics of case presentations.
  • To develop an understanding of the therapeutic process.

Ethics, teaching, legal considerations, role-plays, conceptualization of the work, evaluation, summary and review are incorporated in the supervision process.

Depression and Anxiety

Depression and anxiety are experienced and manifest in unique ways for individuals, and at different levels of severity. These states can be debilitating and have destructive effects on your life. Therapy has been shown to be effective in the shift toward understanding and finding new ways of coping with depression and anxiety.

“I have woven a parachute out of everything broken.
William Stafford

Grief and Loss

Our response to loss is individual. Loss is experienced in various avenues and aspects of life; the death of a loved one, the death of a pet, the loss of a job, the loss of a spouse or significant relationship, the loss of a home are a few examples. Throughout my studies, experiences in the nursing field, and caring for elders, I continue to deepen my understanding, knowledge, and therapeutic support of the journey of grief.

Relationships

Creating and sustaining a fulfilling relationship requires willingness to continue to deepen your understanding of yourself and those you are close to. Therapy offers exploration toward new communication and understanding of self and others.

I am trained in EFT, Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples; I also study and employ the work of Terrance Real, Relational Life Therapy and utilize Existential-Humanistic guiding principles.

“Nothing is more important in life than our relationships. A great relationship boosts your immune system, opens your heart and keeps you vital and creative.
Terry Real, therapist

handsParenting Support - Attachment, Adoption, Blended Families

We live in an age that validates the importance of the parent, yet comprehensive support for parents and families is lacking in our society. The importance of establishing healthy attachment for children and parents is evidenced throughout the lifetime in the connectedness of the child, and this bond can be re-vitalized with therapeutic work.

Adoption of a child is a transition time for parent and child and navigating this complex time can be challenging. In therapy we work toward understanding, clarifying and healing areas of discord and lay a congruent foundation for families.

 

Life Transitions

Our lives consist of continual change, some is self-directed and others happen without our volition or will. Supportive exploration in therapy may be helpful in understanding yourself more fully and making conscious choices, and can both ease stress and clarify your intentions.

Mediation for Relationships

The definition of mediation -“to settle, to bring about agreement, compromise and reconciliation.”

I follow the guiding principles of non-violent communication (NVC), developed by Marshall Rosenberg. This is distinct from therapy in the following ways; this is short-term work, applies to relationships other than romantic couples.
