Supervision for LICSW, LMHC, and LMFT Licensure
Guidelines for psychotherapeutic
counseling licensure in Washington State now specify that only an
"approved supervisor" can sign off for hours of therapy
and clinical supervision.
specific didactic training in clinical supervision and over a dozen
years of clinical and supervisory practice, It's Not Rocket Science
Therapy and Consultation can provide some or all of the required
supervision for Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Licensed Independent
Clinical Social Work, and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.
Individual and group supervision is available.
Supervision is often
sought for one of two reasons: A new clinician seeks to meet the
state requirements for licensure, or the clinician values another
experienced clinician's viewpoint on cases, seeks professional growth,
and seeks ongoing training and shared responsibility for treatment.
These needs are not mutually exclusive.
At INRS, the focus is
on family systems (notably Bowen) theory and therapy, Cognitive
Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and various creative techniques to examine
the supervisee's parallel processes and work as a therapist. How
a therapist grows, thinks, reacts, and maintains a neutral stance
enables increased confidence, prevents burnout, enhances clarity
of purpose and function, and ultimately extends into balancing life,
work, and relationships.
I specialize in therapy
for couples and individuals, emphasizing Systemic Work on Self in
all relationships, including Family of Origin.
It's Not Rocket Science,
but therapy is a different way of thinking about yourself and your
life. I provide treatment that values Truth and Honesty as the route
to one's True Self.
on Self can address a host of benefits with which I have had great
experience and success: improving self-knowledge, relationships
that are based on self-understanding, recovery from abusive relationships
whether experienced as an adult or as a child, better physical health,
and an increase in creativity.
My strongest belief is
that as one improves their sense of True Self, the ripple effects
move outward to all relationships, past, present, and future; as
child, partner, employee, parent, and individual.
While some of the techniques
used in therapy appear on the disclosure
page, what happens in therapy is very personal and individualized.
Therapy starts by asking what improvements the client wants to make
in their life. This goal centers on the individual and their willingness
to work toward that end. The working premise is that NO ONE CAN
CHANGE ANYONE ELSE; YOU CAN ONLY CHANGE YOURSELF. While we all influence
others, our behavior and reactions are the only areas over which
we have any control or choice in our lives.
an emotional and functional family history is gathered, concentrating
on multi-generational functioning from an objective viewpoint. The
intent is to set aside concerns of "Why?", and pursue
"Who?", "What", "When?", "Where?",
and "How?" a family operates emotionally.
Then a client begins
to examine how they automatically react and respond to life circumstances
and relationships in order to gain a more conscious awareness of
their own functioning and ultimately to obtain more choice of responsiveness.
those seeking less intense services, or who wish to direct their
personal growth efforts directly toward interpersonal or workplace
performance, I offer an array of professional coaching services.
In addition to these
goals, personal coaching can emphasize individual and innovation
growth, relationship enhancement, and improved time management and
Coaching services may
include telephone and online consultation, career change and enrichment,
and emphasis on creative skills.
Much like therapy, coaching
emphasizes personal and professional growth. Where therapy centers
on emotional functioning and stress in all its forms, coaching aims
to enhance one's performance at work, in relationships, with creativity,
and for greater fulfillment.
Coaching can be arranged
face-to-face, by telephone, or even email, in that order of preference
