L. Gordon Brewer, Jr., LMFT
I have always known that people's internal worlds can be the most fragile. I have a deep sense of how sacred those places are and want to help them navigate those hard places and find true and lasting change in their lives.
Very simply, supervision is my way of paying it forward. Also, I love teaching and learning. It's exciting to see clinicians learn and grow in their practices.
My hope for future therapists is that they develop a deep sense of kindness and compassion for people that are struggling in life. I also hope that they hone their therapeutic skills and learn new ways to help.
WORDS I LIVE BY:
The supervision relationship is a collaborative relationship. I very much feel and believe that there is a "parallel" process that occurs during supervision and that I "walk with" the clinician as they learn the therapeutic approaches and how to be a better therapist. Simply being present with the clinician and their clients is key to creating change in people's lives.
