Online Supervisor Profile
I am a psychotherapist licensed in the U.S. I have practiced online therapy and online supervision for 20 years and I am the co-founder of Online Therapy Institute. I was an early member of ISMHO (International Society for Mental Health Online) and held the office of President in 2005. I am an avid advocate of telemental health.
I received my B.S. in Mental Health & Human Services from Georgia State University, M.Ed. in Rehabilitation Counseling from University of Georgia and D.Th in Multi-faith Spiritual Direction from SCA University of Theology and Spirituality . I specialize in online coaching, telemental health and the application of complementary, alternative and psychospiritual modalities within the helping professions. My approach to working with clients, students and supervisees is inclusive and collaborative. Along with being a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, I am an Approved Clinical Supervisor and Board Certified Coach. I hold several additional credentials in the healing arts, including Reiki and Aromatherapy. I co-founded Online Therapy Institute had have co-authored and facilitated CPD courses through OTI for over a dozen years. In addition to membership in the American Counseling Association (ACA), I am also a member of the Association for Counselor Education and Supervision (ACES) division (ACA). I am available for one-off consultations and clinical supervision. My clinical supervision services will be considered on a case-by-case basis as jurisdictional boundaries and professional affiliation requirements will need to be considered.
Part of my style of supervision involves teaching (didactic model) but part of the process is often experiential. I utilize supervision based models and methods that combine psychodynamic (patient-centered classical) and developmental models. I encourage an inclusive and collaborative approach among my supervisees and trainees.
