Effective supervision is a model for effective therapy. Creating a nonjudgmental space, observing and sharing internal experiences, and caring for ourselves are all essential parts of therapy that can be modeled by a supervisor.
As a supervisor, I am warm, direct, and trustworthy. We will work together to establish goals to improve your practice that matter to you. Supervision can be a space to understand your responses to your work, improve your ability to engage clients, or learn to implement Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) interventions in your practice. Some clinicians seek out supervision with me if they would like to know if their clients would benefit from DBT or need support in assessing and responding to risk. I also have experience providing group supervision to clinicians and mental health paraprofessionals.
Whether you are a new clinician looking for supervision toward licensure or a more experienced clinician looking to expand their skills, I may be able to help. Please contact me for a free 15 minute consultation to discuss your supervision needs.
I have seven years of experience in managing a variety of programs that served clients of all ages and have employed staff with high school diplomas to masters degrees. I specialize in work with programs that serve clients who may require more support in maintaining safety. I have experience supporting programs in integrating elements from DBT and in working with the criminal justice community.
“Liz has been my source for substance abuse consultation since 2013. She has a gift for helping me prioritize and plan treatment for complicated and high risk cases, and she is non-judgmental and strengths-based. In addition, she has a strong community health background and has a wealth of knowledge about resources and treatment options. I would highly recommend her as a therapist and as a consultant in substance abuse treatment.”
"Liz supervised me for six months while I completed my last field practicum at a local outpatient behavioral clinic. I prefer to use the word 'mentor' instead of 'supervisor' because of how personalized the process felt after the first few meetings. Every consultation built off the one prior, creating a rich, professional space wherein our dialectic of my interpersonal therapeutic process thrived. She always struck a respectable balance between offering constructive feedback and praise that gave me both the direction and confidence I needed to feel grounded during my highs and lows of learning how to provide effective therapy to my clients."
Please contact me to discuss rates for supervision and consultation. I provide a sliding scale fee for this clinicians working in community mental health settings and/or primarily serving clients affected by systems of oppression.
