ACT Consultation and Supervision: Work with Young People and Families - Lisa Coyne

Welcome, and thank you for your interest in learning ACT and clinical RFT! I provide Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) supervision and consultation for clinicians at all levels of training in person, or by phone, or Skype. My goal in supervision is to assist you in gaining mastery in using ACT and RFT experientially, flexibly, and effectively across the children, adolescents, and adults that you see in your practice. Our work will be tailored to your needs, and can range from building your ACT skills to working with difficult, treatment-refractory cases, and learning what to do when you, or your client, is “stuck.” Supervision/consultation can be individual or on a group basis, depending on numbers.

About me: I love training, and love doing clinical work – it is an honor to be a fellow traveler with trainees and clients as they learn their strengths and take steps towards transforming their lives.  I have been a Clinical Psychologist since 2005, and have been an ACT trainer for a few years longer than that. My specialty is working with young people and families, as well as work with anxiety disorders and OCD. As an ACT trainer, I have been lucky to have had the opportunity to train nationally and internationally, and have worked with individuals and entire organizations using a “train the trainers” model originally developed by the fabulous Fredrik Livheim in Sweden. In addition, I have developed a parenting protocol that I and others are currently evaluating via clinical research, that is available to see/use/for research purposes upon request. At present, I am the Senior Clinical Consultant and Founder of the McLean OCD Institute for Children and Adolescents, I and am an Assistant Professor at Harvard Medical School. I also have a private practice in the Boston area (The New England Center for OCD and Anxiety, offices in Cambridge, Melrose, and West Boyleston - feel free to check it out!
