One of my greatest joys is found in helping my colleagues ride the waves that come with being a trauma healing professional. Speaking with a trusted colleague about the successes and challenges of our work is an act of self-care. Vicarious traumatization and compassion fatigue can set in if we don't do our own reflection and processing. Given the serious nature of our field, I encourage my supervisees to balance some of the sadness we can hold by making time each day to laugh!
I offer clinical supervision and consultation for:
I have great respect for my supervisors and mentors and know I would not be the therapist I am today without their love and support, and I continue to reach out to them for their guidance and strength.
I wish to honor some of them here:
