Fall 2022 Consultation & Supervision 

(Scroll down to see opportunities for individual and group play therapy supervision.)

As a play therapy supervisor, I value honesty, trust, creativity, and intuition. 

My approach to play therapy supervision is to offer a strength-based application of the developmental supervision model through a gestalt play therapy lens. The role of the gestalt play therapy-oriented supervisor is similar to that of the gestalt play therapist. The supervisor focuses on helping the supervisee expand their capacities for authenticity, staying in the here and now, awareness, exploration, and presence of the whole self as an integrated play therapist. 

My approach to play therapy supervision is to help supervisees tune in to their body sensations, feelings, knowledge, experience, and intuition. This way, they learn to listen to and trust their subtle internal wisdom to guide them through play therapy sessions.

Nurture and Structure

Growth and development in any axis of life require a balance of both nurture and support. I enjoy creating supervision environments that foster both. For group play therapy supervision, I encourage participants to give and receive both support and nurture in a cooperative and abundant atmosphere.

Group play therapy supervision is structured as follows:

  1. Check-in involves sharing: How you are doing; significant events; brags (What are you proud of?); and a
  2. Statement of what you would like to receive from supervision during the group play therapy supervision session. (Also, state if there is anything you don’t want to hear.) In some cases, play therapy supervisees will have arranged to share video/audio tapes/typed transcripts in advance.
  3. Individuals take turns sharing cases (following a specified format inviting awareness as well as self-reflection along a developmental continuum). As each participant shares, other group play therapy supervision members are invited to give positive strokes and options they may want to share. The focus of group play therapy supervision is on creating safety to invite vulnerability, therefore negative feedback is not invited.
  4. The group play therapy supervisor shares a play therapy activity supported by play therapy theory. The play therapy theoretical orientation is primarily gestalt play therapy. The supervisor integrates theories related to her training in developmental theory, attachment theory, redecision therapy, transactional analysis, family therapy, expressive arts, and sand tray.

As a former faculty member and vice president of a regional therapy training and supervision institute, I have experience co-leading ongoing monthly weekend-long supervision and training groups.

Are you looking for an intellectually stimulating, intuition-focused consultation group?

I offer a consultation group for mental health students, trainees, and professionals. One main goal of this group is to create a space for connection, exploration, and restoration. Another goal is to explore metaphor to enhance awareness of self and other in a transforming world. Many of the consultation groups will center around a poem or two that will be used as an invitation for exploration and intuition. The poems are easily applicable to  our clients dealing with life transformations.
