Grief, Loss, and Disappointment can cause Confusion
Losing a loved one through death, disappointment, distance, or betrayal all trigger feelings of grief and loss.
Grief is also real when there is a loss of dreams, financial resources, or safety and security. Grief hits us in unexpected and confusing ways.
“Get over it” does not work.
Grief is a journey you don’t have to walk alone
Trauma and Abuse are Not Who You Are
The impact of trauma and abuse on a person is mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual. Trauma and abuse turn your world upside down, shake your reality, and twist your perceptions.
Anger, fear, anxiety, insecurity, broken relationships, depression, as well as questioning one’s sanity, reality, and purpose can result.
Healing from trauma and abuse is not forgetting; it is easing the intensity of the emotions. It is you controlling your emotions with your emotions no longer controlling you.
You are not crazy.
You can heal

What is Supervision?
Supervision is a working relationship between a Supervisor and a Counselor-Supervisee in which the Supervisee shares, reflects, and receives feedback to help increase the Supervisee’s therapeutic and ethical competence and confidence to best serve clients.
The supervision relationship is based on openness, acceptance, and trust
What is Salt and Light Counseling LLC's Approach to Supervision?
The Supervisor takes on specific roles with the Supervisee based on the dynamic of the relationship and cases being processed. These roles include Teacher (Action) for didactic-oriented activities, evaluative functions, and transmitting knowledge; Counselor (Relationship) to help the Supervisee understand their own dynamics and resolve issues affecting counseling; and Consultant (Insight) to provide opportunity for the Supervisee to develop their own conceptualization and plan.
