Approach to Therapy and Professional Interests
My approach to clinical social work is integrative, utilizing a Person-Centered framework informed by attachment theory, relational-cultural theory, and infused with mindfulness-based practices. My professional interests include developmental transitions across the life cycle, identity development, issues related to family-of-origin, diversity and social justice issues, healthy relationships, and grief & loss.
Personal Statement on Diversity and Social Justice
A social worker by training, I view people through a strengths-based lens, respecting their inherent dignity and worth and potential for transformative change. Instead of focusing on individual problems or deficits, I recognize the major influence of context and environment on individual and system functioning, and social justice is a core value of my work as a social worker and supervisor.
Approach to Supervision
As a supervisor, I see my role as a scaffolder, supporter, collaborator and guide. My intention is to create a relationship and space that is warm, consistent, ethical, and strengths-based, where supervisees have enough safety to take risks to move to the next level of competence as emerging clinicians. I bring a relational-cultural approach to supervision, attending to the relational quality of experiences both in the supervision setting as well as within the supervisees’ therapeutic relationships with clients. My hope is that supervisees will describe their supervision experience with me as intellectually and professionally stimulating and personally enriching.
