Multi-Theoretical Supervision Groups for Therapists

Supervision and Consultation by Telephone or Webcam Video (for Therapists):

  1. For those therapists who want to improve their skills as clinicians.
  2. Need assistance with difficult clients.
  3. May not have found consultation in their area helpful or theoretically compatible.

My focus as a therapy trainer, supervisor and consultant is helping therapists grow according to their own unique skills, talents and personalities. A major focus is in helping therapists understand and deal with counter transference issues that may be affecting the therapist's understanding of the needs of the problematic client.

I require proof of licensing and malpractice insurance before starting consultation.

Payments may be made through PayPal.

Interested therapists may read more about my philosophy of supervision
by going to the Teaching and Consulting section.

Telephone Consultation:

Please call (503) 699-5534 or email me for more information.

Internet Webcam Consultation:

The steps to contact me via two-way internet video may vary according to your specific computer set up. I have three connection options available for video conferencing, Skype, iChat, and Yahoo Messenger:

In general, to take advantage of two-way webcam conferencing, you will need:

  • a web camera
  • microphone and speakers, or headset. (However, a regular telephone will work with Skype.)
  • a fast internet connection -- DSL, cable or higher. 56K dialup won't do.
  • a processor speed of greater than about 800MHz, either PC or Mac.

Most computers that are under three years of age should be sufficient. See the System Requirements in more detail.

Below you will find a general overview of how to connect over the internet via video conferencing:

  1. Obtain a compter/internet "web cam." You should be able to find one starting at about $30. Several popular brands are MacAlly, Logitech, Labtec, Creative Labs, Panasonic, HP, etc. Most cameras should work with both services. Install the software driver that comes with the camera and go to the manufacturer's website to see if any driver updates are available to download and install.

  2. Download and install one of:

    Choose the software version appropriate for your system configuration. All sites have helpful support for installation and using their set-up wizards.

    If needed:
    Yahoo support:
    Skype support:
    FaceTime support:

  3. Once installed, launch the program and sign in or create an account if it is your first time using the messenging program service. The confirmation process will require replying to an email that is sent by the service to your existing or newly created email account. Sometimes these auto-generated confirmation messages get snagged by spam filters. If you do not receive the confirmation email within about one hour, check your spam folder for a message about your new account information. You may need to revisit the site and request a new email be sent, or talk to a customer service representative.

  4. After creating and confirming your account, you are ready to contact me by email or telephone, and I will give you my specific account information.
