Hi! I am Amanda, an LCSW and board-approved supervisor with experience in Texas and Ohio. I have been supervising since 2015. My supervision focus is skill building, ethics and boundaries, and providing support to those new to the field.
I’m currently in private practice doing therapy and clinical supervision, but I have extensive experience working with people with multiple vulnerabilities and challenges, including chronic health conditions, trauma history, school and career related issues, and severe mental illness. I have worked in community-based, crisis, school and hospital settings.
With clients I take a person-centered and humanistic approach to therapy utilizing evidence-based practices to formulate a therapy journey that makes sense to the client. I want to help people feel empowered to make choices and understand their situation, communicate in a healthy way, and self-advocate and set goals related to quality of life, not illness.
With my supervisees I use a relational model. We keep a healthy boundary of supervision, not therapy, but explore what plays out in the supervision relationship and how it relates to client work. I encourage my supervisees to find their “self” and use it in therapy. We prioritize client crises, countertransference, and ethical issues, and then dive into case consultation, conceptualization, diagnosis, treatment planning, and interventions.
I encourage you to reach out to determine if we would be a good fit for your journey to clinical licensure.
