Online Creative Clinical Supervision for
Registered Clinical Counsellors

I offer creative clinical supervision for Clinical Counsellors who are registered with the BCACC (RCCs). When you work with me, we talk about what’s going on and process this through music and other creative experiences.
No previous musical experience is required to benefit!

How Can RCC’s Benefit?

All counsellors need support from time to time. Someone to remind us of why we entered our profession and to encourage us to bring our unique gifts to our work. To help us process challenging material that clients bring to us. To alleviate some of the isolation that we can feel when continually holding and caring for other people’s pain.

My style of supervision offers a supportive place to creatively process emotional, psychological, embodied, and spiritual elements of your work that might not be easily described in words.

What can I help with?

  • Feeling deeply affected by your clients (some therapists might identify this as countertransference)

  • Processing challenging work experiences

  • Feeling “stuck”

  • Burnout

  • Vicarious Trauma

  • Bringing your creativity into your clinical work

  • Aligning your work with your core values

  • Individual coaching to bring musical elements into your work

  • Professional development

  • Bringing greater joy to your work

My goal is to help you be the RCC that you are excited to be, whatever that means to you. I work with professionals who align with diverse approaches to health and well-being. To meet your needs, I draw on my extensive professional experiences, scholarly work, and foundational understandings of major approaches to health and well-being.

What happens during a session?

You share what you’d like to address, and I will listen and ask clarifying questions. You’ll be invited to creatively explore and process themes related to what you bring in. You don’t need any musical experience to participate. For example, I might support you in creating sounds, art, or movements to express feelings about a case, or perhaps you’ll engage in an individualized guided imagery and music session to address burnout. We’ll then talk about the creative experience and connect it to the concern you brought in.

A bit more about my experience in this field.

I bring my extensive clinical supervision experience over the past 12 years to these sessions. I have supervised over 100 undergraduate and graduate students as part of music therapy and creative arts therapies programs at Wilfrid Laurier and Concordia Universities. I have also been providing confidential professional supervision for the past 8 years to therapists and other health and wellness professionals. I can hold space for the most challenging cases. I can help you get to the heart of the issue and address your needs safely and effectively.

I will support you using a blend of perspectives. I draw on music-centered music therapy frameworks and have worked closely with Dr. Colin Andrew Lee in Aesthetic Music Therapy. I bring in psychotherapy and clinical counselling sensibilities with an emphasis on person-centered (Rogerian) and mindful self-compassion work. My approach is further contextualized by intersectional feminist therapy and social justice perspectives. I listen well and offer unconditional positive regard. I know what it is to feel isolated and alone, to be someone who feels things deeply and yet doesn’t feel like they “fit in”. To be someone who feels at home around artistic practices and people. I am familiar with common and not-so-common concerns and I know how to listen and help.
