I have recently become a supervisor candidate. I am working towards my clinical supervisory designation with American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy – Ontario division.
In the process of obtaining this designation, i am looking forward to supervising therapists who are interested in receiving supervision and who are in process of fulfilling requirements for clinical membership with AAMFT.
You know, I had had very enriching experiences with supervision, when i began my clinical work. I have received supervision from clinical supervisors who were knowledgable and supportive. They were my mentors in this field. They shared their knowledge, wisdom and experiences with me. In my collaborative supervisory relationships with supervisors, I felt supported and experienced less of isolation.
The work we, therapists, do could be isolating at times. Having a supportive collaborative supervisor could prevent experiences of isolation, discouragement and possibly burnt- out.
Supervision is a very effective way of getting help and support to address socially constructed problems; it is a preferred way of developing a professional/personal network; it is a creative way of getting new perspective and ideas; and it is an opportunity to working together creatively and sharing local knowledges.
My approach in supervision is inspired by social constructionism and Narrative ideas. If you are looking for an opportunity to develop your skills and competency, if you are looking for fulfilling your supervision hours with AAMFT and if you are interested in learning more about my supervisory approach, please feel free to contact me.
I’d appreciate you if you could pass on my information to therapists/clinicians who may look for a supervisor. Thank you,
