As a therapist for over thirty-five years, and a faculty member and internship supervisor in graduate counseling programs for nearly thirty, I've worked with therapists from many different theoretical backgrounds and orientations. During those years, I also consulted with counseling agencies wanting to offer their clients better care, and developed trainings and workshops for therapists wanting to improve their skills.
Case Consultation includes:
Case Discussion: including concise and inherently-potent ways of framing clients’ issues, specific clinical techniques and interventions (useful across a broad spectrum of counseling paradigms), and a focus on how the therapist might ‘position’ themselves for the best clinical traction with a specific client.
Therapeutic Concerns: including the issues or ‘trickiness’ that might be arising for the therapist in working with a client (or a type of client), or conversations about the complicated process of being a therapist . . . and various the issues arising from that role.
I have a strong philosophical belief that we therapists need a full toolbox of clinical interventions and techniques, but we also need a strong sense of self, an ongoing willingness to allow our work to teach us and change us, a deep sense of humility and respect for the “process” of therapy, a process that pulls us into our best selves, and hopefully supports and challenges our clients into becoming their best selves.
Whether you’re working with individuals or couples, with anger, trauma or grief, with psycho-educational paradigms or brief modalities, case consultation can help you expand your clinical skills and dial into the uniquely fulfilling aspects of being a therapist.
