Kristen's approach to supervision is collegial and self as therapist affirming. She emphasizes deep therapist self-awareness and analysis at the core of the therapeutic relationship and as integral to being an effective clinician.

She offers a safe and encouraging space for supervisees and peers to have difficult conversations about their work especially around the issues of transference and countertransference.

The work we do is important and it is very difficult. We all need understanding and supportive mentors and peers on our personal and professional advisory board.

Additionally, supervision consultations focus on helping supervisees to develop and strengthen a core theoretical orientation, diagnostic, case conceptualization, and treatment planning, and practical systems and strategies for working with clients.
