CLINICAL SUPERVISION
IN SAN FRANCISCO

AND ONLINE

As therapists, we are the tools of our trade, and this work requires us to bring our whole selves. Every new clinician needs accurate reflection, feedback, and support on their journey.

My Clinical Supervision can help you:

  • Know your unique superpowers as a therapist
  • See client issues through a social justice lens
  • Become an amazing therapist who provides amazing results
  • Metabolize your clients’ pain so you don’t carry it with you
  • Recognize and resolve when your own stuff is triggered by client work

I am the supervisor I wish I’d had when I got licensed.

I am not a removed expert, but a real human who will bring humor, warmth, and compassion to my supervision of your work. We all need to be fully seen and have our gifts highlighted, and to see ourselves through the eyes of a true other.

I’m an experienced clinical supervisor who has supported pre-licensed clinicians in diverse settings such as Westside’s Ajani Counseling Center in San Francisco, California Institute of Integral Studies, Ableworks in East Palo Alto, and Grateful Heart Holistic Therapy Center.

I bring the perspective of many years of social work experience in diverse community settings, as well as nearly a decade in private practice. My therapeutic orientation is strengths-based, humanistic, relational, and informed by principles of social justice. My current passion is Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy, which is a modality informed by attachment theory and neuroscience that harnesses the power of the therapeutic relationship to undo aloneness and create lasting transformation for clients.

Fee:  60-minute clinical supervision sessions cost $150, with a limited number of sliding scale spots available during daytime hours for those with financial need.

I would be glad to speak with you about where you are in your journey and whether we might be a fit to work together.

Supervision Client Testimonials

“As an African American, I was looking for a Clinical Supervisor who is open, can listen and be real with me. Carolyn is incredible and dynamic in these areas and even though we do not share the same cultural identities, she just gets it. I feel respected and understood. I highly recommend her to everyone I know.”

Sheri Broussard, ASWCase Manager, Self-Sufficiency Program, Human Investment Project

“I highly recommend Carolyn as a clinical supervisor. She’s very easy to connect with, a clear communicator, and immensely helpful in thinking through complex cases. Carolyn treats me with respect, asks challenging questions, and empowers me to be client-centered and think out of the box. She has created a safe supervisory environment that allows me to be myself, make mistakes, learn, and grow as a professional therapist. Her transparent and open style is very refreshing and I look forward to our meetings every week.”
