Clinical Consultation & Supervision

Clinical supervision and training have long been professional passions of mine. I have experience supervising practicum trainees, predoctoral interns, postdoctoral trainees, and licensed clinicians seeking specialty supervision/ consultation.

I believe that effective and growthful supervision prioritizes modeling and encouragement of reflection, authenticity, and openness to ongoing learning. My supervision style is interactional, blending focused observation and instruction of the clinician’s chosen evidence-based theoretical orientation, collaboration with the clinician in creating opportunities for development of clinical intuition and awareness of limits of competencies, support for development of clinical competencies related to social justice and diversity, attendance to the clinician’s use-of-self practices in the therapeutic context, and support of the clinician’s unique intersection of clinical practice and personal beliefs. Supervision goals are set collaboratively, integrating supervisee identified growth edges and strengths. The supervisory alliance then serves as the foundation for establishing safety and collegiality, which supports any difficult dialogues related to competency gaps, interpersonal deficits, ethical dilemmas/ lapses, and/or diversity issues. My philosophy of supervision is grounded in a use-of-self model that blends developmental, relational, and reflective practices.

I offer clinical consultation and supervision in general psychotherapy and the specialties of women’s mental health, perinatal mental health (perinatal anger/ postpartum rage, PMADs, postpartum adjustment, and reproductive trauma/ loss), and -ism based trauma and marginalization.

Copy Editing

First impressions can happen so quickly. Within seven seconds of the first encounter with your content, a visitor to your online platform rapidly assesses the experience and forms an opinion of you based partly on your mastery of the written word. As clinicians, our professional platforms communicate volumes regarding our credentials, competence, and presence. Grammatical mistakes, poor sentence structure, and misspellings can all detract from your message and impact the first impressions formed by your visitor. Before long, your reader is questioning your competence and professionalism because the poorly written copy has left them confused, distracted, and hesitant. Often, these visitors don’t take the additional step of accessing our services because their experience with our online presence negatively colors their expectations of an in-person experience. Sadly, their next step is to move on and visit the online platform of the next provider on their list, resulting in a missed opportunity for both the potential client and for us as providers.

Well-written copy allows for clear communication to your prospective clientele, ensuring potential clients that you value and attend to details. I offer copy editing services to clinicians for their website copy, blog posts, and professional profiles. My copy editing services include review for grammar, spelling, and style. Utilizing my experience as a freelance editor and former English teacher, I can help you put your best foot forward on your professional platforms.
