Individual mentorship

A mature manual therapy practice is truly an art form requiring skill, experience, reflection, and collaboration.

Experience has shown that teaching, mentoring, and practicing are overlapping but not identical skill sets. A good mentor/supervisor needs to have training, skills, and experience in each of the areas involved.  Additionally, neither observation alone nor practice alone results in skilled practitioners. Reflection is a key part of the development of skilled and experienced practitioners. The mentorship process is a key step focused upon the reflection process that arises in a complex exchange between mentor/mentee.

To schedule a consult for mentorship, you can request an appointment. If you are not sure if mentorship is right for you and would like to schedule a brief consult to determine if my mentorship services would be a good match for you, contact me.
