As the owner and director of Garrett Counseling, my goal is to provide support for our counselors, helping them meet the needs of our community. My approach to supervision is the same as therapy: compassion, accessibility, and accountability. The therapeutic environment should be one where people can explore feelings, behaviors, and attitudes freely. I care about the details. I care about your counselor. I care about your child. I care about you.
