Looking for Supervision?

As a Certified CAMFT Supervisor, we strive to create an atmosphere of trust, respect, and safety for those we supervise. Why? Because failing to do so can leave supervisees feeling judged and afraid to try interventions – interventions that would benefit the clients.

Instead we employ Reflective Supervision, a relationship-based approach which has the same basic components as Imago Relationship Therapy (IRT).

What is Reflective Supervision?

With Reflective Supervision the supervisor strives to create an atmosphere of mutual respect, safety and collegiality with the supervisee. Supervision is looked at as a vehicle for promoting growth and development in a supportive and encouraging manner. These qualities allow the supervisee to feel heard and valued, which in turn promotes deeper learning and the exploration of complex issues.

Reflective Supervision utilizes the parallel process – the foundational aspect of relationship-based work – and as such the supervisor engages the supervisee in a collaborative, problem-solving process rather than telling them what to do. And because of this, the supervisee is more likely to engage their clients in a similar manner.

Mindfulness is also emphasized in Reflective Supervision, to help increase awareness and calmness in supervisees.
