Approach to Therapy: I primarily utilize emotion-focused therapy, while also incorporating aspects of interpersonal process and cognitive behavioral approaches. Emotion-focused therapy combines humanism, attachment theory, and a family systems perspective. No matter which theory I employ, I value establishing a strong therapeutic alliance so that my office becomes a safe environment in which to share emotional experiences. I also believe culture is an important component of people’s lives, so I view each client through their unique multicultural lens.
Approach to Supervision: I view supervisees from a developmental perspective. For me, this means establishing mutually agreed upon goals that fit the supervisee’s level of training. I value an egalitarian relationship in which both supervisee and supervisor can learn from one another. I also find it important to focus on self-care, so that the supervisee can establish strategies to help them cope with the stresses associated with being in the helping profession.
