Supervision & Consultation

Exploring Professional Identity Activity

Exploring Professional Identity Activity

Supervision/ consultation can take many forms depending on your needs and stage of professional development. In keeping with my therapy approach, our work together will depend on what it is you are seeking.  Sandtray and art are especially helpful in exploring professional dimensions.  In supervision/ consultation my goal is to provide a safe, supportive place to explore the theory and practice of therapy from the most basic levels to the deepest places of unknowing.

Individual Rates: $100 per hour for licensed clinicians; $90 for pre-licensed clinicians; $75 for students.

Group Rate: $55 per 2 hour group for 3-4 persons.  Larger and smaller group prices are adjusted.

Internships opportunities are available on a case by case basis.

Face to face and distance options are available.
