Clinical Supervision

Choosing a clinical supervisor is a decision that will significantly impact your future as a clinician. I am a certified clinical supervisor in Florida and I offer supervision for associate-level clinicians. At this time I am providing supervision for supervisees in community agencies.

Together we will focus on: essential skills and intervention, documentation, ensure ethical practices, your development, the importance of self-care, implementing theory in counseling, and ensuring that you feel and are competent.

Professionalism, Attendance, Working relationship with other professionals, Therapeutic relationship with client, Record keeping, Client assessments, Treatment planning, Discharge, Case management, Clinical counseling skills, Responsiveness to supervision, Enthusiasm for work, Responsibility and dependability and finally, self starting.

Therapeutic Modalities

Having a versatile toolbox to draw from with clients is highly important, as well as being able to shift when needed. Having a supervisor that is trained and/or certified in various modalities helps to expand your toolbox so you decrease the chances of getting “stuck” as often. A few of the modalities Romel draws from are;

CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), MI (Motivational Interviewing), DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy), ACT (Acceptance Commitment Therapy), IFS (Internal Family Systems) EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), Sensate Focus, Client Centered, Solution Focused.

The structure of CBT coupled with clients navigating sticking points with MI are very helpful. As the chance process unfolds, ACT works well with accepting the parts of self and the whole self (IFS). Because therapy has a start and end date, solution focused is an underline thread coupled with Client centered as the client continues to remain the expert in their life. Because we are all sexual being, sensate allows for sexual parts of self to not be ignored and to be engaged throughout the process.

EMDR or TF-CBT coupled with IFS works extremely well to explore parts of the self that remain determined to protect clients from what is deemed as “harm” and to work to integrate various parts from the lens of trauma healing (TF-CBT) or AIP (EMDR)
