supervision and case consultation

Supervision and Case Consultation with Carolynn Aristone, MSW, LCSW, CST

As a group practice leader, I’ve had the privilege of supervising both new and experienced clinicians over many years. Just as I center the client-therapist relationship as essential to the therapeutic process, I consider the supervisor-supervisee relationship as central to your growth and development. Together we can attend to the somatic, mental and emotional processes of your clients, while also honoring your experience, as the clinician.

Some of the areas that we’ll explore together include:

  • Entering into the relational field with your client
  • Avoiding triangulation in couple’s work
  • Use of paradox to work with resistance
  • Tracking and attending to present-moment awareness with couples
  • Processing individual partner work within the couple’s dynamic
  • Implementing structure while also meeting the client where they are
  • “Use of Self” as a means of connection
  • Staying with and not ahead of the client
  • Specific interventions, strategies and tools

My therapeutic style is influenced by Gestalt Therapy, Mindfulness and Eastern Philosophy, Psychodynamic Conflict Theory, Genogram work, the Gottman Method, Emotional Focused Therapy, InterSystemic Sex Therapy, Polyvagal Theory as well as the work of Marty Klein, Barry McCarthy, Emily Nagoski, Esther Perel, Tammy Nelson, Terry Real, Lonnie Barbach, Jon Kabat-Zinn, Sharon Salzberg and others.

Professional Credentials:

  • Licensed Clinical Social Worker – since 2008
  • AASECT Certified Sex Therapist – since 2016
  • Certified by Council for Relationships in Sex Therapy – since 2014
  • NASW Approved Supervisor – since 2013

Case Consultation

Case consultation is a one-time deep dive into one of your cases. I will help you develop a clear hypothesis, along with strategies and interventions for how to work with your client. I’ll highlight foreseeable limitations to the work, as well as process any potential countertransference and how to manage this.
