A bit more about my experience in this field.
As a supervisor, I view it as a privilege to hold space for challenging situations, 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.
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 counselling psychology, music therapy, and creative arts therapies programs at Wilfrid Laurier University, Concordia University, and Yorkville University. I have also been providing professional supervision for the past 10 years to psychotherapists and other mental health professionals. I hold space for the most challenging cases and am here to help you get to the heart of the issue and address your needs safely and effectively.
I will support you using a blend of theoretical orientations, including psychotherapy and clinical counselling sensibilities with an emphasis on person-centered (Rogerian), music psychotherapy, and mindful self-compassion work. My approach is further contextualized by social justice perspectives including eco therapy, intersectional feminist therapy, and queer therapy. I am also trained in CBT and draw on that approach for those who desire it.
