ISTDP Supervision






Looking to improve your clinical skills as a Therapist?  

Both my parents were educators; my father a high school teacher and my mother a language Instructor in Spanish and Italian.  

Over the years, before entering the mental health field in 2008, I worked in a variety of educational settings. From 2016-2021 I was Adjunct Faculty with the California State University, Los Angeles School of Social Work, teaching both undergraduate and graduate-level courses.  


 I've completed a 3-year "Training of ISTDP Trainers" with Jon Frederickson, MSW.  


ISTDP Supervision is intended for ISTDP Trainees who have completed an ISTDP Pre-CORE, or are enrolled in ISTDP CORE training and have a basic grasp of ISTDP Principles.  Supervises must have video taped clinical work in order to receive ISTDP supervision.  


ISTDP Supervision can help you:

  • Think clinically vs. reflexively.

  • Build Confidence in yourself!

  • Improve capacity to co-create an internal, emotionally focused therapy 

  • Track and work the Triangle of Conflict 

  • Develop and improve Psychodiagnosis 

  • Assess and regulate symptoms of Anxiety 

  • Improve defense work (identify various resistances)

  • Improve capacity to work within the transference

  • Increase capacity to invite and work with higher levels of affect

  • Work with countertransference

  • Learn more about Psychodynamic Principles such as: transference, enactment, unconscious vs. conscious, and conflict
