The Basics

A wooden pegs face each other. This reflects concepts discussed in clinical supervision in Boulder, CO with North Boulder Counseling 80301.

I have spent more than two decades helping people. I run a successful group counseling practice in Boulder, Colorado. And, one of my most cherished parts of my day is clinical supervision with other Colorado therapists. I have legal, ethical, and professional knowledge to support your development as a psychotherapist. In addition, I have worked with therapy clients of all ages. And, couples and families. I believe that humans are profoundly resilient and capable. And, when we as therapists invite them to that vision of themselves, they show up for themselves in new ways. 

How I See It As A Clinical Supervisor

I believe that you are the primary tool in therapy. And, that building knowledge of and trust in yourself is the primary function of the developing therapy. As a clinical supervisor, I strive to help you know when to trust your process as a therapist. And, when to self reflect and maybe course correct. It is exciting to me to know that there’s a hunger for therapists to develop their art. There are so many amazing people building their skills to become better and better therapists. And, can effectively support people in building their tolerance for distress. In addition, learning to maximize their ability to rest in peace in their lives. This piece of clinical supervision makes my heart beat.

Whether we’re sitting together in Boulder, CO or meeting through video chat from anywhere in the state of Colorado, I want to be part of that journey of growth for you.

Important Considerations of Clinical Supervision in Colorado

That being said, there a few important pieces of clinical supervision that should be kept in mind. There are ethical and legal issues that may not cross the mind of the evolving therapist. As a clinical supervisor, I am well versed in these areas and can offer peace of mind in these matters. I can guide you to the places where you might find the best answers throughout your career. And, giving you the right answers today. 

Learning How You Know What You Know Through Clinical Supervision 

A woman holds soil. This reflects concepts discussed in clinical supervision in Boulder, CO with North Boulder Counseling 80301.

When you walk away from a quality clinical supervisor relationship, there are some things you can expect. First, you should expect to understand why your clinical style is effective. Second, how you know what you know in session. What did you pick up on in the session that helped you understand the client and the situation so well? Often, as therapists, we get the sense of a client and it’s difficult to explain. Sometimes, we might call it a gut feeling or intuition. Ultimately, even the truest gut feeling can be traced to more subtle client expressions. This includes aspects like tone, speech cadence, or their appearance on a given day. If you can trace your own intuition in the early stages of your career, you will do far better at weeding out the times that you are projecting. As a therapist that has been providing clinical supervision in Colorado for a few years, this is a vital piece to the clinical supervision puzzle. 

Learning How to Not Know What to Do In a Session

As a clinical supervisor in Boulder, CO, I have seen a common among the therapists that I provide clinical supervision for. Many therapists struggle with not knowing what to do in the session. You sit there and a client is slowly unpacking what sounds insurmountable to you. And, as they talk you find yourself more planning what the heck you are going to say to them than listening deeply. If we are honest, all therapists have been there at some point. This is a rich place to be as a therapist if not terrifying. This is the place that you learn the most about what your job really is and who you are. We were all told at one time or another that our job is not to fix. But, that is pretty hard to feel when someone is sitting with you in immense pain and asking you pointedly how to fix it. 

How Clinical Supervision in Will Prepare You For This

While clinical supervision won’t give you the “answer” for this, it can help you navigate your career as a mental health professional. It can help set you up for professional success and satisfaction. One of the best things we will do together in clinical supervision is to work on your process for not knowing with a therapy client. First, we’ll look at how you do that with yourself. Second, how you will do that with them so that you retain the relationship. And, do well by them as a therapist and make a lot of room for something new to happen together. Not knowing might just be your superpower if you stay with it. 

In Clinical Supervision, Our Time together Will Be Real. And, Really Helpful.
