Supervision and Case Consultation for Clinicians:
Renewing Resources for Successsful Treatment

As a teacher, I have worked with everyone from three year olds to graduate students. Many years of working with children in schools, agencies, and private practice have contributed to my understanding of how I practice and teach art therapy.
This broad understanding of child psychology and art therapy likewise underlies my approach to supervision with both child clinicians and students. My work as a therapist, consultant, teacher and supervisor is based on understanding and respecting the transformative nature of art in therapy with children. I offer supervision for both new and experienced clinicians interested in exploring this work.

Sometimes even experienced clinicians encounter a challenging case, and seek consultation. I have regularly consulted on cases involving very young children, and children with special needs (including autism spectrum diagnoses). I also consult in cases where verbal approaches to therapy have not been successful (for example, with Therapy for a child who is selectively mute). Such clinical consultation allows for a therapist to strengthen their therapeutic relationship with a child, and to return to the child and their family with renewed resources for successful treatment.
