“I would highly recommend supervision with Kathryn Gates. She helped me gain confidence, learn skills, obtain knowledge, and think through not just work with clients, but note taking, payment taking, paperwork, and record keeping. I still use some of the processes she taught me. I also really enjoyed discussing theory and the practice of therapy with her. I feel like I learned a lot and was allowed to explore for myself in a very supportive environment.”
Your 3000 hours as an LMFT-Associate are arguably the most important period of your career. It is when you discover who you are as a therapist, what you are good at, what you are drawn to, and what not to do.
My relationship with my supervisees is supportive and collaborative as we bring out who you are in the therapy chair. I work with couples and families froman Imago and Bowen Family Systems perspective and I see individual clients through a systemic lens, employing techniques from ACT, CBT, and Narrative Theory. With qualified candidates, I’m open to exploring what theories and applications work best for you in the room with your clients.
