“The supervisory relationship is one that must possess respect, trust, and openness by both the supervisor and supervisee. My approach is to meet you where you are in your substance abuse training, and offer a supervisory relationship that is collaborative and supportive. Our work together will unravel the aspects of working with clients, maintaining a healthy sense of self and striving for success both personally and professionally. Whether we borrow from my theories and techniques, or research new ones together, my goal is to support you in becoming the best Addiction Specialist you can be.”
