Supervision & Consultation
Karen as Supervisor & Consultant
Karen encourages supervisees to pay attention to the larger social structures including culture/ethnicity/race/class of their clients in addition to the individual and family dynamics.
Supervisory modalities include case presentations, role plays and experiential methods. One example of her practice is the use of sandtray to explore the sensitive area of counter transference. Sandtray, which invites the creative, intuitive right hemisphere into the conversation, expands the understanding of the dynamics and increases the space to re-examine the course of therapy.
Supervision and consultation are provided in person either individually and in small groups. Additionally arrangements can be made for on-line supervision, either individually or in small groups through a video platform such as Zoom.
Karen is approved by the California Board of Behavioral Science as a supervisor for associates (pre-licensed MSWs, LPCCs, MFTs) in California. Additionally, as a Registered Play Therapist Supervisor, she meets the Association for Play Therapy (APT) requirement to supervise professionals working toward becoming a Registered Play Therapist.
