Under Clinical Supervision

Makena Knapp, Associate Marriage and Family Therapist, 137490 is practicing under the supervision of Kim Fried (California, LMFT, 108015) at Wave Therapy.

Please, note: A clinician listed as being “clinically supervised” is completing clinical hours toward their licensure. They have one or more fully licensed clinical supervisors that often have special training to become supervisors. They consult with their supervisor(s) on all of their cases, which means that, when working with them, you are getting the time and expertise of multiple therapists in your treatment.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

My approach is compassionate, warm, and real. My biggest priority is making you feel seen, heard, and safe to express yourself without judgment. You already possess the wisdom to heal, and it's my privilege to help you tap into that knowing.
