CSD Insider Newsletter: The Value of Mental Health from our Baby Steps through our Golden Years
August 17 @ 8:00 am – 5:00 pm
The Directory’s foremost function is to facilitate the search for supervision. We’re set up to support both the supervisor and those seeking to fulfill supervision hours.
Today we feature our Founder, Dr. Amy Parks, a long-time LPC, Ph.D., and enthusiastic advocate for all things mental health and clinical supervision. Based in Virginia, she’s also a licensed school counselor, school psychologist, and clinical supervisor at Dominion Psychiatric Hospital about 20 minutes west of Washington, D.C. Her selfless devotion inspires many and transcends our field through her creation of the CSD, a platform designed to promote supervision, collaboration, and clinical techniques that lead to effective treatment for patients all across the country.
She’s an ambitious businesswoman keen on building connections among mental health professionals and soon-to-be therapists. She explains that the supervision environment should be, “a safe place to express yourself and to share your concerns, thoughts, and feelings…and a space to allow for the unexpected to emerge.” Supervision is an ongoing, communicative process where trainees feel accomplished and move in the right direction toward growth and success.
When she’s not operating her own group practice, counseling young children, adolescents, and families, and supervising the next generation of clinical therapists, Amy participates in industry podcasts, gives informative interviews, and conducts seminars and workshops to benefit the future of mental health treatment.
