What You Can Expect as a Supervisee
Virtual or In-Person; Group or Individual
Committing to the helping profession, whether as a social worker, marriage and family therapist, or professional counselor is a brave undertaking. My hope is to work alongside you on your journey to being an experienced, authentic, and healthy practitioner. I will bring my expertise in Trauma-Informed, Holistic, Person-Centered, & Collaborative care to help you sharpen your therapeutic and diagnostic skills. I am enthusiastic about learning from one another in how to best serve clients. My approach to supervision reflects the values under which I practice psychotherapy. This involves honoring the physical, environmental, mindful, and relational aspects of your client's lives as well as your own. I strive to promote a sense of curiosity, a feeling of connectedness to the clients you serve, and an inspiration to value the care required for yourself along the way.
My Supervisory Values
ADHERENCE TO WI STATE LAW
The work we do together will reflect the guidelines and requirements set forth by the licensing entities in the state of Wisconsin.
APPLICATION OF NASW CODE OF ETHICS
Maintaining a high ethical standard in our work is paramount. We will apply the Code of Ethics to all of the work we do together.
COMMITMENT TO EQUITY & SOCIAL JUSTICE
I recognize that Black Lives Matter and that we live on Indigenous lands. I recognize people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and/or gender expansive, queer and/or questioning, intersex, asexual, and two-spirit (LGBTQIA2S+). I am committed to affecting change to obtain social justice, inclusion for all, and to end racism; to the continuous anti-oppression and anti-racism work required of me as a person with white privilege. I take very seriously my responsibility to promote policies, laws, and programs that affirm, support, and value LGBTQIA2S+ and BIPOC individuals, families, and communities.
COLLABORATIVE, RELIABLE, & SAFE CONSULTATION
We will work side-by-side toward the goal of sharpening your therapeutic and diagnostic skills. We will also explore self-care in the helping profession and discover your authentic offerings as a provider. I strive to provide an encouraging environment that fosters a sense of safety and open discussion and will offer and receive constructive, strengths-based feedback. I will honor and respect your time to make each of our meetings productive and meaningful.
GUIDANCE IN MAXIMIZING PRODUCTIVITY
To ensure you gain experience and master each domain of clinical practice, you will learn organizational and planning strategies to maximize the use of your time as a Supervisee. It can be overwhelming to juggle clinical time with documentation, consultation, and managing the unexpected. I will provide you with templates for tracking hours, supervision notes, and CEUs to hopefully reduce unnecessary stress in this area.
A DYNAMIC PERSPECTIVE
I can provide perspectives from a dynamic range of social service experiences:
Alternative treatment modalities in trauma healing
Advocacy (social and political)
Reproductive health education
Military Service Member/Veteran Issues
Substance use and co-occurring conditions
Supporting survivors of sexual assault and violence
Assertive community treatment for individuals with severe and persistent mental illness
A TRAUMA-INFORMED SELF CARE APPROACH
My approach to supervision is the same as my general approach to life- trauma-informed and balanced. Not only is it crucial for providers to approach our clients with a keen awareness to the many forms trauma may take, but it is also crucial to approach one-another as providers from this same lens to promote compassion among all. Additionally, it is imperative to address the complex nature of vicarious trauma, compassion fatigue and burn-out so that we can continue to do our work over the long term.
