I provide supervision in person or remotely by video conference.
Building a Thriving Private Practice
I offer guidance for practitioners at all career stages in building and growing a private practice. I have experience with urban, suburban, and rural practice development tools. Supervision typically includes 2-4 appointments, usually offered remotely by phone or video conference. Topics include: developing a niche market, website design, marketing materials, and use of web tools to promote your work (e.g. Google AdWords, Facebook, Twitter, blogging, etc.). We also discuss finding office space (sublet vs. leasing), joining insurance panels, intake paperwork, screening new patients, building a referral network, setting office policies, evaluating business insurance products, and office/space design.
I have years of experience teaching psychodynamic psychotherapy to graduate students, early career professionals, psychiatry residents, and outpatient clinic staff members. In my private practice I enjoy supervising individual clinicians in their work with children, adults, and couples. This includes discussing issues of case conceptualization, intervention techniques, understanding and managing countertransference reactions, and the use of contemporary and evidence-based psychodynamic approaches. Supervisees are encouraged to bring in process notes from individual sessions.
Integrating Faith & Psychotherapy
Supervision in this area is focused on meeting the needs of specific clients whose faith is a central component of their lives and worldview. Guidance in this area is informed by my training in spiritually integrative psychotherapy, extensive research in the psychology of religion, and my work with clients for whom religion and spirituality are central. My perspective is clinical and respectful of client's diverse religious experiences. I have worked with clients from evangelical Christian, Catholic, Orthodox Jewish, Muslim and other backgrounds. I am especially interested in attachment style as it pertains to the divine, how the faith community helps or hinders mental health, and how spiritual crisis can be a catalyst for change.
