Supervision

Completing the clinical licensure process can be overwhelming, but we are here to help with that! 

Our available supervisors are state and board approved. They help clinicians through the process of obtaining independent licenses and/or play therapy credentialing. 

Our supervisors help develop goals, work towards clinical competency and support clinical development through individual and didactic supervision. Read more about their individual supervision styles and philosophies below!

Maria Laquerre LMFT, RPTS

Maria utilizes the Systems/ Dialectical Model of Supervision (SDMS). SDMS considers aspects of the supervisor-trainee relationship as well as assessing and addressing the developmental level of a supervisee. She believe that how a supervisor responds to a supervisee will transfer into the therapy room and affect how they responds to their own clients. SDMS provides that supervisors and trainees are individual biological systems that are influenced by their biological and social factors, again viewing the individual within a systems concept and being mindful of how that affects their engagement in supervision.

Maria is a Registered Play Therapist Supervisor and an AAMFT Approved Supervisor. Maria chose to complete these additional certifications to further her own skills and she believes that ongoing education and training is vital to all aspects of her profession.
