Wise Women Supervision
Wise Women Supervision is a unique supervision group beginning January 8, 2024. Three experienced therapists, who have been in private practice for decades and work with individuals and couples, are offering supervision and support for therapists. Each month a therapist will take the lead in clinical group supervision, meeting three weeks each month to provide a rich and diverse experience. The cost will be $300 a month and run for 3 months. We will be meeting in person in West Seattle. If interested, please reach out to one of the therapists below for more information.
