I am a Registered Psychotherapist in Independent Practice (#008363). I have completed 45+ hours of clinical supervision training and meet all further CRPO Clinical Supervisor Requirements.
With over 10 years in the counselling and psychotherapy field, a Master's Degree in Counselling Psychology, and extensive training in trauma therapy, I provide a safe, confidential space for individuals, couples and families to nurture positive communication and personal growth. I offer Clinical Supervision and Consultation to professionals who are in need of support in their private practice and external supervision to practicum students.
I practice from an attachment, relational and neurobiological framework. I am a Certified Complex trauma professional and can guide your understanding when working with complex cases to understand appropriate assessment and pacing to know how to tailor treatment to each client and their circumstances. I encourage supervisees to embrace all the knowledge and skills they possess. We work in collaboration and I assist supervisees to discover their unique approach to psychotherapy and in developing their confidence as practitioners.
Formal individual supervision is offered on a weekly basis for those looking for a primary supervisor. Consultation is also offered on an as needed basis.
Dyadic supervision is offered to students, RP (qualifying) members and RPs. Those who wish to do dyadic supervision must have a partner.
Group Supervision is offered in blocks of 4. Groups meet monthly for 1.5 hours. Groups are capped at 6 participants.
The CRPO requires that Qualifying Psychotherapists obtain a minimum of 1 hour of clinical supervision for every 4 to 5 hours of direct client contact hours.
Once members achieve RP status, the CRPO requires 1 hour of supervision for every 10 direct client contact hours, at least 50% of which must be individual or dyadic.
Once RP’s have achieved 1000 hours of direct client contact and 150 hours of clinical supervision, they may apply to practice independently.
The next clinical supervision group cycle begins in September 2021 and finishes in December 2021. Click here for more information about group supervision.
