I graduated with my masters in social work in 2011 I received my license in clinical social work in 2015. My theoretical approach to supervision is eclectic, designed to meet the needs of my supervisees. I believe that the supervisory relationship is essential to the evolutionary process of learning and growing as a clinician. As a supervisee I expect you to take responsibility for your own process and create your own goals. As your supervisor, it is my job to be your partner and give feedback to help you meet those goals. It is important to explore themes of transference and countertransference as it affects the supervisory relationship and how you will work with clients. I identify as a cognitive behavioral therapist and a cognitive behavioral supervisor. I plan to provide feedback and homework when needed.

Clinical experience:  LCSW with over 7 years of clinical experience working with children, adolescents and young adults in both individual and group settings.  I have a specialization in working with the LGBTQ community, particularly with at-risk youth in school and community mental health settings. My supervision style is open, experiential, creative and supportive. I believe in a person centered supervisory model where the supervisor and supervisee collaborate and work together.  My role as a supervisor is to provide an interactive environment where the supervisee can feel both challenged and empowered. The goal is for the supervisee to gain insight and self-awareness as they grow and develop in their profession.
Areas of Interest: the LGBTQ community, youth, sexual orientation, gender identity, contemporary psychoanalysis/psychodynamic theory and practice. I work through a trauma informed, intersectional, social justice lens.  My aim in supervision is to work collaboratively towards an increased awareness of the LGBTQ community as well as other marginalized and under served groups.
