Supervision for Experienced Therapists Working with Adults

I provide clinical supervision that helps therapists use the lenses of Self Psychology and Intersubjectivity.

With a Self Psychology lens, we focus on understanding what your patient is thinking and feeling, and how the world looks through their eyes. I believe that people need to feel understood and accepted, and that is also part of what facilitates growth. With the Intersubjectivity lens we focus on both you and your patient. It allows you to think about meaning from different perspectives, yours and theirs. It allows your patients to better negotiate the world, and appreciate what others think and feel. Supervision will help you develop the capacity to use your own internal reactions to better understand what is happening between you and your patient, both consciously and unconsciously, and to use that understanding to further thetherapy.

I practice the principles of Self Psychology andIntersubjectivity when I supervise. I do this because I believe that it provides the best environment for learning, and also because this models what I am teaching.

I believe that supervision should be an enlivening, supportive, growth experience.
