Associate and Supervision Services

I offer associate positions that include supervision and private practice development to psychotherapy graduate students, associates, psychology assistants, and licensed therapists of all kinds. My private practice offers psychotherapy and supervision in California, and in-person in San Francisco, with in-person clinical supervision and consultation across the Bay in San Francisco and Alameda counties. I have training and professional experience in agencies and settings in San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley, and beyond. The practice holds open opportunities for psychological assistants and associates to continue to develop clinical skills, build private practice knowledge, and expand professional identities.

Private Practice Supervision for Pre-licensed Associates

I welcome associates on the path to licensure for a variety of psychotherapy licensure types: Psy.D., Ph.D., ASW, AMFT, and APC. In our practice, we can sign off on hours, provide structure and support for developing a private practice when you are licensed, identify and express your professional identities and styles, deepen your clinical skill sets, identify additional clinical areas of interest, and assist you in creating a path to licensure that is as smooth as it could be.

I am grateful for the opportunities I had in supervision to learn about my own process as a therapist, and our practice is developed to support you as you continue to strengthen your own professional self. I supervise from a relational, feminist, anti-oppression perspective, and welcome all therapeutic styles and methods that integrate well with those ideas.

Licensed Associate Positions

At Divergent Worlds, we have opportunities for licensed therapists who share our values to join us. We can connect with you around building or re-energizing your practice, developing referrals, expanding your relationships with various communities, learning business and private practice skills, and connecting to like minded colleagues.

Agency and Practicum Supervision

I have experience with providing supervision for individual and group therapy. Additionally, I have conducted process groups for students as an introduction to providing therapy. I believe it is important to understand our own strengths, and to create a path in therapy work that feels authentic.
