The Value of Supervision

Supervision is a collaborative experience designed to enhance both your clinical and professional development.  The value of the supervisory relationship goes beyond generating creative solutions when trouble-shooting cases, as it provides the opportunity for challenging, clarifying, and refining new ways of being a therapist.  As a supervisor, Erica provides role modeling, invites questioning, and delves into the realm of transferential and countertransferential experiences.  She is interested in understanding the supervisee’s goals and objectives for clinical and professional growth as well as their expectations of supervision.  Just as in clinical work, a good supervisory relationship is built on trust, is dynamic, and uses the here-and-now relationship to deepen understanding.
