Seeking A Supervisor
I want to offer you my support and experience when seeking a supervisor.
Choosing a Supervisor is one of the most important decisions of your educational career.
By the time I was ready, toward the end of my Bachelor program, I already knew my specialties. Mental Health Disorders and Trauma. I had no idea who would be my supervisor. As I started my master’s program, I walked into the classroom with one of our adjunct Professors for Trauma. I knew instantly that I would want her as my Supervisor. I had to pursue her. She didn’t make it easy and she was not cheap. Definitely not free like I had heard others discuss.
I could tell right away she was not going to be easy or make the next two years go by without me having to put in the work. It was a huge commitment, and I am forever grateful for believing in my commitment to my work and all that she provided and supported me through.
She taught me how to be a great therapist and excellent supervisor who in turn is committed to my supervisee’s process.
It was no joke! She kept track of every hour. She did not let me slide even with being 10-15 mins late. She walked me through the process of completing my supervision paperwork and when it was time for completion, she walked me through that too. I never had to worry if I would have everything I needed to become licensed. I could trust that I would.
She provided me with instrumental information and processing of trauma experiences. Prepared as a Trauma therapist, I always felt equipped to walk into a group room or individual session to assist patients with their trauma.
Today, I enjoy assisting new therapists in preparing them to feel safe as the authority of their sessions whether for group or individual. I enjoy listening to their case conceptualizations and supporting the therapist with ideas, direction, and education to help you prepare to be the best therapist you can be.
