Are you looking for a Clinical Supervisor?
"In every community, there is work to be done. In every nation, there are wounds to heal. In every heart, there is the power to do it."
How Can I Support You as a New Counsellor?
It is an honour and privilege to be able to offer supervision to new and fellow counsellors as I understand the struggles, concerns and questions that come with developing ones professional identity and competency! I am an RCC and an art therapist currently holding a provisional BCACC-Registered Clinical Supervisor designation. I have extensive experience working cross-culturally in settings where advocacy, cultural sensitivity and a focus on systems has been paramount. I love working with emerging adults (age 17-23) as it requires a keen developmental lens and often invokes creativity.
My practice is integrative and draws from a variety of lenses and modalities such as art therapy, attachment, narrative therapy, focusing-oriented therapy, CBT, DBT, polyvagal, solution-focused, existential and strengths-based. I have 7 years of experience supporting individuals with lived experience of what the biological Western mental health model would label as bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder (BPD), ADHD, autism spectrum, complex and developmental trauma, PTSD, anxiety and depression.
My supervision practice is highly relational with a focus on your strengths and needs for professional development. I truly believe that vulnerability, courage, curiousity, a non-judgemental attitude and accountability in the supervisor-supervisee relationship are key for valuable learning and growth. I support creativity and critical thinking and am available for supervision for those who work in community agencies, colleges and universities, with international students and neurodiverse clients, and who are incorporating art therapy group work into their roles.
I look forward to hearing from you if you have supervision needs.
