Jay Burke, Psy.D., LMFT
I chose the field of marriage and family therapy as I wanted to assist others in working toward wholeness, both for themselves and also in their significant relationships (i.e. family, work, friends, etc.).
Levenson (1984) observed that as a therapist, he often finds himself puzzled, muddled, uninterested, and disconnected; however, when acting as a supervisor of a case, “all is clear” (p. 153). Similarly, Levenson noted “technical and theoretical” difficulties are astonishingly clear to him when operating as a supervisor (p. 154). I have found this to be true in my own supervision work, and I find great satisfaction in being able to bring that clarity of thought to the individuals that I work with.
I hope new professionals see that the development as a clinician is just that, a developmental process, and that each person will reach a point where they feel competent and prepared in their clinical work. Supervision is an important and essential part of the developmental process in helping individuals advance toward that place of competence.
