Do you want supervision? Are you seeking a way to get your LCSW? Are you looking to expand your clinical skills?
I offer supervision to individuals and groups of people interested in developing their skills as psychotherapists. In either situation, supervision is a place to explore clinical issues while also receiving support for one’s personal and professional development.
Topics that are discussed in supervision with me:
- How does one determine boundaries?
- When does one offer a personal anecdote?
- How to attune oneself to one’s clients?
- What is transference? How do we recognize that?
- What about counter-transference? How do we handle that?
» Group supervision is held Tuesday evenings, 6-7pm in NW Philadelphia, and costs $40.00 per week.
Graduates of my supervision group have said:
“It’s easy to be self-critical and feel isolated; this group is a great place to counter those thoughts and feel connected to others in the field.”
“It’s great to get feedback from several different people and has given me the chance to consider different approaches to working with my clients.”
“In this group, we build each other up.”
Individual supervision is an opportunity to delve into the work of providing psychotherapy to clients. Things discussed are: transference and countertransference, the impact of cases on the therapist, the use of self, and developing confidence as a professional.

“You offered me a new way of approaching the problems my client presented.”
“You are sensitive and perceptive; working with you has helped me to develop greater capacity for empathy.”
