Approach to Therapy: My psychodynamic/interpersonal approach leads me to focus primarily on the therapeutic relationship as means to foster change for the client. Through the use of present-focused awareness and humor, my hope is to create an environment in which clients can gain a different perspective on their difficulties. In a brief therapy format such as we use at the SCC, I also tend to integrate cognitive and behavioral suggestions into therapy as a way to move the client more quickly toward emotional change.
Approach to Supervision: My therapeutic approach definitely influences how I am as a supervisor; my tendency is to address the therapeutic relationship over session content. While direct guidance/suggestion is sometimes necessary, I tend to prefer an egalitarian atmosphere for supervision. I always take the developmental level of my supervisee into account and may shift my approach somewhat to accommodate this (e.g., moving toward less client/session review and more toward a consultative approach as the supervisee develops).
