A helpful supervisor is a good listener, committed to helping you develop your unique voice as you work with patients.
Effective supervision offers an extra set of eyes to help you recognize what the patient is communicating and use your skills and intuition to be as helpful as possible.
In a respectful, collegial setting with an experienced supervisor you can learn to better understand diagnosis, transference and countertransference and to develop empathy for and insight into the patient's struggles and growth.
Supervision is an opportunity to develop your unique identity as a therapist, to build on your strengths and to clarify your professional approach and ethics so that you grow into the best therapist you can be.
Finally, it's a chance to create a healthy balance between work and personal life and to gain the skills to reach your professional goals.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in both New York and Pennsylvania, a certified Psychoanalyst and a certified EMDR therapist.
Feel free to call me to ask questions or make an appointment to talk about your supervision goals and how I may be helpful to you.
