Supervision and Consultation
One of our favorite things to do is work with other therapists to help them conceptualize cases, hone their skills and talk through some of the challenging issues that come up in this profession. Even if you are fully licensed, this is a challenging profession and nobody should go it alone. We provide both individual and group supervision and consultation to therapists who are seeking licensure or who are licensed and would like to improve their skills or simply consult with another professional about their clients. Contact us for more information about supervision and consultation with our experienced clinical psychologists.
