Personal Statement on Diversity and Social Justice
I am a committee member on the Social Justice Conference Committee and consider myself a lifelong learner in all areas, especially those on diversity and inclusion. I value diversity and difference and see the importance of exploring this in my work with clients, trainees and in my personal life. I was greatly impacted by a presentation I attended at NCORE in New Orleans 2018 by Robin DiAngelo and value the framework she provides on developing white racial literacy.
Approach to Supervision
My hope is to foster a safe and supportive environment for trainees to grow professionally, become more confident in their work with clients and to trust their own clinical judgement. I encourage trainees to try new techniques and challenge themselves in ways to deepen their work with clients. I strive to help trainees grow into their own professional identity and see how their unique qualities can impact their work. I value the clinical perspective of the trainee and hope to foster a non-judgmental environment for trainees to reflect on personal reactions and how these reactions and differences may impact their work with clients. I appreciate personal reflection and investment from the trainee in their supervision experience.
I love spending time with my kids (and husband), listening to live music and lounging and watching a good movie or TV show. I have a rediscovered love for reading and have been enjoying this as of late. I like to snow ski and enjoy a fun trip to the beach! My family is of utmost importance to me!
