Supervision for LPC-Associates

In a profession that requires deep cultural sensitivity and understanding, I recognize the the importance of instilling culturally attuned awareness to new and emerging LPC Associates. Supervision should be comprehensive, collaborative, and designed to prioritize your growth in a holistic manner. 

 

I believe in the transformative power of supervision for mental health therapists. I experienced this in my journey and endeavor to offer the same to you. It is essential for providing the highest level of care to those in need and those whom we serve. Supervision is an integral component of professional development.

 

My supervision offerings are crafted to support mental health professionals who serve Black and Brown clients and communities and therefore emphasize holistic healing and culturally responsive practices. 

Why Supervision Matters:

Enhanced Clinical Competence:
   - Supervision provides a platform for LPC Associates to share their experiences, challenges, and successes. This collaborative environment fosters continuous learning, enabling supervisees to enhance their clinical skills and stay current with evidence-based practices.

Diverse Perspectives:
   - In the realm of mental health, there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Supervision offers the opportunity to tap into cultural and diverse perspectives and insights, promoting a richer understanding of various therapeutic approaches based on the need. 

Preventing Burnout:
   - The demands of supporting others through their mental health journeys can be emotionally taxing. Regular supervision acts as a buffer against burnout by providing LPC Associates with a supportive space to process difficult cases and recharge their emotional resilience.

Ethical Decision-Making:
   - Supervision is a cornerstone for ethical decision-making. By engaging in regular discussions with peers and mentors, LPC Associates can navigate complex ethical dilemmas, ensuring that their practices are guided by the highest standards of professional conduct.

Connection:
   - The sense of connection and camaraderie developed through individual and group supervision not only enhances personal well-being but also contributes to a vibrant and collaborative professional community. It also strengthens the importance of consulting with colleagues and building relationships.

Ethical considerations are shaped by cultural contexts. Through supervision, LPC Associates therapists can engage in discussions that delve into the intersection of ethics and cultural diversity, ensuring their practice aligns with the values of their community.

My supervision approach stems from a feminist, integrative orientation that infuses multicultural competency as its base. I am naturally creative so I use intuition and a mix of different ideas and modalities to help foster learning from different angles. I am trauma-informed and trauma-trained. I use somatic, bottom-up approaches to help clients achieve the change they are seeking.
