Under Clinical Supervision
Peter Paul, Licensed Master Social Worker, 116165 is practicing under the supervision of Amy Gottheimer (New York, LCSW, 79136) at Resilience Lab.
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 was your path to becoming a therapist? What inspired you to choose this profession?
My path to becoming a therapist was certainly not a straight one. While I've always been drawn to helping people understand themselves, I actually began my career as a teacher. And though I enjoyed connecting with students individually and supporting them emotionally, I knew that teaching was not my calling. After four years in education, I transitioned to social work so that I could work one-on-one with individuals to help them find a renewed sense of confidence in their own power to right the course of their lives.
What is your style/approach to therapy?
My primary role in working with clients is as a reflective listener. I believe that humans are uniquely capable of finding meaning in and through times of suffering. It's my job to identify and develop the strengths my clients may not see in themselves, and empower them to be their own catalysts for change.
What are your biggest strengths as a therapist?
Accountability: On my end, I'm committed to maintaining momentum and consistency, and recognizing clients' achievements when they wouldn't otherwise realize them. I'm also proactive about admitting my own faults and getting feedback from others. Receptivity: To ensure my clients feel heard, accommodated, and empowered, I regularly ask them how they perceive the quality of the therapeutic relationship, their progress in therapy, and the accuracy of my insights or interpretations. Getting client feedback is an important way for me to make sure we are working on the goals that matter most to them. Lightheartedness: I often laugh with my clients as often we explore more difficult feelings and experiences. By injecting some humor or being aware of their sense of humor, we are able to maintain a strong working relationship together.
