A common thread throughout my supervision work is my commitment to clinician-centered conversations. This is the kind of supervision that I have always most benefited from in my own clinical development, and I committed early on to maintaining that focus through the authenticity and respect that I believe make it possible for a supervisee to engage in that kind of vulnerable, valuable work.

I seek to strike a fluid balance of challenge and support that is based on listening to my supervisees' needs.
