Supervising associates (APCCs, AMFTs, ASWs) can be rewarding (and frankly fun). It can also bring new stressors, new challenges, and SO MANY new questions!
Join a group of your peers with varied experience, for consultation, support, and general support in your work as a clinical supervisor. Groups will run for 90 minutes, in-person at our Castro/Mission office (1829 Market St).
Barton Shulman (Bart) is a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, National Board-Certified Counselor, Board-Certified TeleMental Health Provider, and Gender Specialist, working full-time as an individual and group psychotherapist at a community mental health agency where he primarily serves the 50-and-older, long-term HIV survivor community. He works as a member of an interdisciplinary team, working closely with psychiatrists, case managers, substance counselors, and others. His private practice is a passion for Bart, giving him the freedom to provide the best support for his clients, even if sometimes that means helping them to find a different therapist who better fits their needs.
Bart is licensed in California, Colorado, Florida (telehealth only), Indiana, Kansas, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. He anticipates licensure in Illinois and Washington in the coming months, and awaits approval of his licensure in British Columbia and Denmark.
Clients choose Bart because of his warm personality, and his deeply empathic presence. His style is integrative, meaning that his psychotherapy is specifically focused on each individual client, with no “cookie cutter” treatment. He is a follower of the teachings of Carl Rogers, who noted, “I can’t make corn grow, but I can provide the right soil and plant it in the right area and see that it gets enough water; I can nurture it so that exciting things happen. I think that’s the nature of therapy.”
