Hello! Hey, Viergelyn! I am a licensed psychotherapist (LMHC) in Massachusetts, Maine, and currently have temporary reciprocity in New Jersey. I offer individual and couple counseling as well as psychotherapy.
I am a depth-oriented therapist who specializes in expressive arts, brainspotting, somatic and mindfulness therapies. I'm interested in decolonizing counseling techniques and approaches, with a particular emphasis on rehumanizing the counseling profession through the application of inclusive cultural affirmative approaches and processes.
I'm interested in LGBTQIA, BIPOC, ethnic, and indigenous psychology.
Depending on my purpose, placement, and position in settings, I am an intentional visionary, weaver, healer, gatherer, and disruptor.
I've been running a solo private practice in Boston, MA for the past 7 years. I am an adjunct professor at Lesley University, where I teach group supervision, counseling theories, and power, privilege, and oppression.
Trauma, C/PTSD, and Dissociative experiences are my primary core clinical specialties and interests.
Over at Sacred Aura & Co, I use my intuitive and psychic abilities — to help humans make remarkable transformations in life, love and business!
Clinical Supervision and Consultation
Do you need to accrue clinical supervision hours to meet LMHC licensure requirements? Do you need off-site supervision from the agency or organization? Are you looking for expressive arts modality supervision? Clinical Supervision is generally providing pre-licensed mental health professional supervision towards licensure hours. Supervision is scheduled regularly and requires a contract and the supervisor and supervisee must carry professional liability insurance during the course of the agreement.
You are licensed in the mental health field, so whats next? Consultations are often categorized into two categories: clinical consultations and business consultations. Clinical consultations concentrate on countertransference, establishing clear boundaries, case conceptualization, and clinical skill development. Business consultations are typically focused on professional development topics such as marketing, navigating a specialized clinical specialization, and establishing a solo practice.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE?
Consultation is the sharing of experiences, guidance, and knowledge between two mental health professionals. Consultation is frequently done on a "as needed" basis. On the other hand, supervision is generally for pre-licensed clinicians satisfying client contact hours for licensure in their residential state. The supervision is bound by legal and local laws.
