Training & Consultation

I no longer do clinical supervision for LPCs, but I continue to conduct play therapy supervision for individuals seeking their certification.  I am happy to consult as needed.

My approach is person centered and developmental, focusing on the needs of each individual to facilitate learning, competency, and personal growth. I offer play therapy supervision/consultation individually and in pairs for those seeking play therapy registration.

 

Consultation issues include, but are not limited to:

  • Conceptualization

  • Evaluation and diagnosis

  • Treatment planning and intervention

  • Ethics

  • Self-examination and personal growth

  • Use of self as a therapist

  • Self care (family of origin issues, dealing with life transitions and challenges,

  • Balance between personal and professional life, secondary trauma, integrity)

  • Preparation for court testimony

  • The journey toward certification

offer individual and paired supervision (considered individual supervision by the Ga. Composite board)

Cost: $120 per clinical hour for individual supervision: (60 minutes)   

          $ 50 each per clinical hour for paired supervision (60 minutes)
