Tonia offers weekly supervision for new art therapists who are working on their hours for their ATR (Registered Art Therapist) credential. 50 of the 100 supervision hours required to obtain the ATR must be with a Board Certified Registered Art Therapist (ATR-BC). Supervision can be conducted in-person at the East Bay Art Therapy office or remotely through a video-chat platform such as Facetime or Zoom.
Tonia supports her supervisees in exploring topics such as: transference and countertransference with clients, developing healthy boundaries between professional and personal life, self-care strategies to manage compassion fatigue and vicarious trauma, and professional identity as an art therapist. She encourages her supervisees to create personal response art that can be explored together in supervision. She is available to provide resources and feedback to support her supervisees' practices, including input in the analysis of client artwork and other session documentation or material. She facilitates a natural flow to her supervision sessions, guided by the supervisee, what they would like assistance with, and what they desire to get out of their supervision time.
