Therapists & Supervisors
- Do you get confused about your role as a therapist?
- Do you find it hard to emotionally connect with your client?
- Do you want more engagement & impact with your supervision group?
In 2014, I passed my MFT licensing exam with a HUGE sigh of relief. But then lay a humongous challenge before me. “Now what do I do?” I was 4 years divorced. I was living with my elderly parents. My only real work experience was as a minister. I had no business acumen. I had little to no financial cushion, and I had to repay student loans.
Needless to say, I had a MOUNTAIN of questions. I could have asked colleagues or former supervisors and professors, but I assumed they’d be too busy to answer all my questions. So I did the only thing I could think of. I found answers on my own. I googled, I read blogs, I listened to business podcasts. I must have spent hundreds of hours researching. And you know what? It worked! I finally got to a place where I think I (kinda) know what I’m doing!
But does it have to be this difficult? I started a podcast for all you new therapists out there who also have a mountain of questions. The answers are out there for sure, but who has hundreds of hours to spend trying to find them? My hope is to help you get custom answers to your custom questions so that you can be more present with your kid. So that you can start repaying those loans. So that you can stop second guessing yourself and start doing the work you love ❤️
I also developed a method (or is it more like a toolkit?) over the past 5 years that has been INDISPENSABLE for my therapy work. It’s inspired by Sandtray work, but in my opinion, more portable and more flexible in its usage. I’m in the process of trying to write out the process, but for now, I feel it’s better to demonstrate through video.
This method, which I call “Figure It Out,” has greatly reduced my performance anxiety as a therapist, and almost always creates A-Ha moments for the client. Figure It Out can be used in clinical settings as well as in supervision/consultation settings. SUPER excited to share it with you!
