Consultations

(For Clinicians)


Individual clinical Supervision

Choosing a Clinical Supervisor is an important step in your professional development; your foundation of learning, support, modeling, and ultimate identity as a professional counselor.  As an Approved Clinical Supervisor, I offer supervision for individuals seeking Licensure as a Professional Counselor in the state of Colorado.  I am approved by the Center for Credentialing and Education, Inc., and have received ongoing education and "supervision of supervision" throughout my professional career.  If you are interested in receiving Clinical Supervision, have questions, or would like to discuss the possibility of beginning a supervisory relationship, please fill out the form on the contact page and share your interest.  

 

Group clinical Consultation

The purpose of Group Clinical Consultation is to provide an auxiliary consultation relationship where group members who are either already licensed or are under the direct, ongoing supervision of another Clinical Supervisor can receive additional support, direction, and feedback from an additional LPC/ACS, related to their ongoing professional development and clinical work.  If you are interested in becoming a part of a Clinical Consultation Group or have additional questions, please fill out the form on the contact page and share your interest.  

 

Advanced Training for Clinicians

 

The PEX (Pragmatic/Experiential) Method for Improving Relationships is a skills-based, psycho-educational model designed to help clients rewire relational habits that have proven ineffective in their intimate partnerships.  Based on the principles developed by Dr. Brent J. Atkinson, author of Emotional Intelligence in Couples Therapy: Advances in Neurobiology and the Science of Intimate Relationships, the PEX Method Training provides mental health practitioners with a strong foundation of this interactive and highly effective approach to working with couples. 

 

This two-day training introduces the empirically-supported framework in which The PEX Method was developed and then systematically takes clinicians through the four phases of couples therapy that are designed to support clients in developing the skills to:

  • Understand and regulate differences in nervous system wiring
  • Develop a more mindful and engaging relationship with the Emotional Brain
  • Identify internal “signals” related to habitual relationship dysfunction. 
  • Cultivate more respect, cooperation, and understanding from their partners
  • Stand up for themselves effectively, without putting their partners down
  • Develop new, more effective Emotional Habits
  • Stimulate internal states that naturally lead to more intimacy and connection.

 

Through reviewing critical steps involved in specific interventions, and engaging in skill-building simulations, you’ll learn how to help clients 1) realize that they have the power to transform their relationships regardless of their partners’ current levels of motivation,    2) develop the core set of habits that have been scientifically proven to increase “partner-responsiveness,” 3) learn how to regulate internal states that interfere with the ability to implement these habits, and 4) become motivated to engage in practices that recondition automatic internal reactions and enable the formation of new habits.
