Supervision with Nika Gannon
Hello, I’m Nika
I am an approved supervisor for Washington state under LICSW licensure. My approach to supervision is rooted in developmental and relational principles.
To me supervision is a mutual process, where power and responsibility are shared between the supervisor and supervisees. I strive to create a space where clinicians feel safe and supported to grow, where they feel held and seen in their humanity as well as their professionalism.
I was inspired to step into the role of providing supervision by amazing examples of mentorship on my own path. I can look back and attest with certainty to the empowering force of these relationships. So I wish to give back and share knowledge, expertise, humor and compassion with those called to be a healing presence in the lives of others.
I provide supervision to clinical interns at the Healing Moments Counseling
I provide supervision to associate level clinicians (SWs, MFTs, MHCs) – openings in November 2022
I provide consultation to fully licensed clinicians
I specialize in:
Individual and relationship therapy
Out of control behavioral patterns, addictive behaviors
In my therapeutic clinical work, I utilize emotionally focused therapy (EFT, EFIT) and psychodynamic approach.
Along with this, I have extensive experience in emergency behavioral health, as an ER clinician, addressing suicidal and homicidal ideation, psychotic behaviors, and substance use issues in a crisis setting.
Based on this, I gladly offer support and expertise in:
Navigating crisis and assessing/managing risk ▫️ what level of intervention is appropriate for a client ▫️ what they can expect from their engagement with the higher levels of the behavioral health care system
Collaboration with other interdisciplinary professionals
