Washington State Approved Supervisor
So, you're interested in supervision. Thank you for considering me as your supervisor. I am a Licensed Couples and Family Therapist, Clinical Sexologist, AASECT Certified Sex Therapist, AASECT Certified Sexuality Educator, Clinical Sexologist, and a Washington State Approved Supervisor.
I am offering clinical consultation to licensed professionals and supervision to folx working towards WA state licensure. My continued growth in anti-racist and de-colonial therapeutic practices influences my work with supervisees. Wadley (2020) tells us:
“The field of sexology is moving towards emancipation as a result of having to address systematic shifts as well as emergence of those who have needed to create their own tables and seats that are relative to their communities. The new face of leader ship is a mosaic of emancipated individuals and communities who have marched in the Black Lives Matter and #MeToo movements, exhibited resilience and courage to share stories of victimization and alienation, advocating for the acknowledgment and celebration of gender non-binary folks, protested recent executive and judicial decisions to a Roe v Wade, and push for comprehensive sexuality education both domestically and abroad. Emancipated leaders are activists and hold themselves and others accountable for individual and systemic injustices. These leaders take responsibility for conceptualizing initiating change, and, as the field continues to evolve, there will be more leaders who will emerge out of the necessity to impact and influence their surroundings in a positive way" (p. 350).
This is a new time and space for us as therapists to expand beyond the traditional lens that excludes far too many of us. This journey, as a supervisor, is in part to assist in creating “systematic shifts” that will call in those that have been excluded from our work. Becoming a supervisor provides me with another platform for leadership through a social justice, diversity, equity, and inclusion lens.
