Clinical Supervision

I am so excited to start my role as a clinical supervisor! In full transparency being a new clinical supervisor means I will also grow within this journey. My hope is not to pretend to “know it all” but rather work collaboratively with you to support and assist you in setting and achieving your clinical and professional goals. A huge part of supervision is knowing you do not have to navigate through the unknowns alone. I hope to be with you through those moments and I am thankful to have the support from our Chief Clinical Officer, Elaine Cavazos and our other dedicated perinatal clinicians at RPC.

Clinical supervision is a critical part of a clinician’s professional and personal development. It provides the space for supervisees to reflect on their work, be supported, improve their skills, explore their own reactions, and build their professional identity to competently provide quality care. It takes time! A period of 24 to 48 months, 100 hours of board approved supervision, and a total of 3000 clinical hours! Might sound like a lot but it is truly an investment to your professional growth (and the time will pass ☺). 

Here are some skills and perspectives I will bring to supervision and please read more about me:

  • Perinatal Mental Health therapist - PMH-C
  • Trauma informed therapist, EMDR trained – Basic training and Early Interventions and Ongoing Traumatic Stress
  • Integrate body and movement through Sensorimotor Psychotherapy for Trauma Themes- Level 1
  • Bilingual and bicultural
  • Experience in interdisciplinary settings working
  • Experience in non-profits and group private practice settings.
