Clinical Supervision

The goal of supervision is to promote the development of the Supervisee's professional identity and competence. The Supervisor will help the Supervisee gain knowledge, case conceptualization, and skills within the defined scope of practice. Together the Supervisor and Supervisee will understand ethics, codes, rules, regulations, standards, and guidelines (including consent, confidentiality/ privacy). 

Internal Clinical supervision is available online through the Jane App and is covered by Cambrian Counselling and Wellness.

Cierra Garrow is a Registered Psychotherapist and a Marriage and Family Therapist with many years of clinical and teaching experience. Cierra’s clinical approach is informed by Emotionally Focused Therapy, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and Trauma Informed.

Cierra uses the Reflective Model of Supervision as the foundation for clinical supervision practice to support clinicians in capacity building, providing space to explore the complexities of their clients’ experiences, and the intended and unintended impacts of our work. She will use solution-focused strategies (asking “what’s going well?” at the beginning of each of our sessions) and encouraged exploration of a wide variety of techniques (“what resources do you and they have access to, to move you closer to your goals?”) to address the wide variety of presenting issues. Cierra believes in the power of connection and focuses on this with her supervisees to support them in their own heart-led practices.
