Supervision and Consultation

Clinical supervision and consultation are important parts of my practice.  I especially enjoy working with new clinicians who are hoping to grow their skills in psychoanalytic psychotherapy, working with patients with complex trauma and personality disorders, and addressing issues of social identity and structural violence in their practices.  I have supervised social workers, psychiatrists, licensed mental health counselors, and expressive therapists, and value working with supervisees from different mental health disciplines and theoretical orientations.  Most of my supervisees practice in inpatient, residential, and forensic settings, and I especially enjoy supervising people who work in these settings.

I have consulted, presented at Grand Rounds, and offered trainings with hospitals, agencies, and training institutes nationwide.  Some of my consultation practice involves helping agencies and institutes think about how they are approaching racism both clinically and organizationally, for example by helping them better serve the needs of clinicians and patients of color.  I also offer case consultations on clinical cases that are proving especially challenging or troubling, especially when there are issues of personality pathology involved, and enjoy supporting agencies and institutes in being more effective in their work on difficult clinical situations.

Finally, as an expert on school shootings and White Supremacy, I offer consultations to schools and school districts around issues of mass violence and discriminatory incidents and threats.

My fee for clinical consultation is flexible–I am open to a sliding scale in order to accommodate new clinicians.  My fee for organizational consultations is $250 per hour; I am open to offering a significant sliding scale for BIPOC- and LGBTQ+-serving organizations with limited budgets.
