Supervision and Consultation

Supervision

Supervision is a professional service provided to clinicians seeking further licensure in Idaho. I hold supervision endorsements by Idaho Bureau of Occupational Licenses as a licensed marriage and family supervisor and as a licensed clinical professional counselor supervisor. Supervision is the direct observation, exploration, and discussion of a clinician’s work in order to provide opportunities for learning, insight, and perspective taking.

Approach

My intention for supervision is to support clinicians to develop their professional skills in order to promote client wellbeing, values, and growth. Supervision is directed at the “journey of counseling” rather than “arriving” at a certain place of development. Inevitably, the belief of “knowing it all” or “fully understanding” the process of counseling leads clinicians toward a mindset that becomes narrow and inflexible. I work diligently toward creating a safe and open atmosphere for supervisees to hone their clinical skills and application of skills within their identified theory of practice. I seek to support practitioners in identifying their direction for clinical growth based on raising connection to values and clarifying purpose surrounding the important matters in one’s career and caseload. 

I will serve as a guide, a teacher, a support, a sounding board, and a willing ear as you work toward your licensure and your values as a clinician.

Fee: $70 per hour

Consultation

Consultation is the process of exploring the complexities of a case or caseload with another mental health professional. All treatment providers are encouraged to consult within the mental health community and all professional ethics support this model of continued professional development. 

Approach

In the practice of counseling and treatment all treatment providers encounter unfamiliar or challenging treatment presentations. It is part of the process or “journey of counseling.” In our professional journeys we are called to observe the counselor within us and the person we are. Often these two mindsets will lead us to a protective stance or a vulnerable stance. I’ve seen this in my own journey and in the paths others have taken. Sorting and processing a challenge with a value directed mindset and the support of another clinician is at the heart of the consultation process.

Consultation services are available for any coach, clinician, psychotherapist, or practitioner in service of identifying values, exploring relationships within the work environment, and supporting mental health clinicians with their continued development or case specific needs.  

Fee: $35 per hour
