Inma has extensive experience providing supervision to social workers, counselors, play therapists, marriage and family therapists, parent educators, and case managers. She currently provides individual clinical supervision and play therapy supervision. She is licensed in Washington, DC, and Maryland.
As with therapy, Inma’s approach to supervision is rooted in the quality of the supervisory relationship. This includes not only an agreement on goals and emotional bonding, but also a big emphasis on safety, trust, diversity, and culture. Inma provides thorough, honest, and helpful feedback, and uses videotaping and discussion of sessions as assessment methods and ways to give appropriate feedback.
Additionally, as a Registered Play Therapist Supervisor, Inma has received extensive training in expressive therapies (play therapy, sand tray therapy, and art therapy), and provides high quality play therapy supervision to those that are working towards their RPT credential (Registered Play Therapist), current RPT’s, and other RPT-S that benefit from case consultations. She also assists clinicians in setting up their play therapy rooms.
"I have had the opportunity to work with Inma as a coworker and as a supervisor. Because of her multicultural approach, Inma brings a fantastic value to clinical conceptualization and treatment. Inma is intentional and proactive at the clinical feedback she provides, while at the same time, she lets you do your process of finding your clinical style. Inma knows the ethical and legal guidelines of Social Work and other mental health professions. She can guide and inform your practice and help you achieve high standards and clinical insights. Inma is knowledgeable in clinical work with adults and children. She is a supervisor I recommend for your clinical, personal, and professional development."

"Working with Inma as my clinical supervisor was the most wonderful blessing I could ever ask for. I always felt supported, that my concerns were addressed and that I was challenged to find creative ways to reach my potential each and every week we met. Having had several different supervisors throughout my journey toward becoming an LICSW, I can safely say that Inma was one of the best and I highly recommend her for anyone seeking a positive and supportive supervision experience". Miriam Kahn, LICSW-C
"I highly recommend Inma’s clinical supervision services! Inma’s passion for training and supporting aspiring clinical social workers is a gift to the social work field. Inma is extremely reliable in meeting clinical supervision needs, giving you one less thing to worry about so you can focus on strengthening your clinical skills and supporting your clients. She provides a supportive, trauma-informed, grounding space that honors your emotions and experience. Inma lets you set the supervision agendas and encourages meaningful reflection throughout". Julie Klein, LGSW.
"Inma is an excellent and thoughtful supervisor. During supervision sessions she aided me in deepening my reflection about issues of countertransference, ethical decision making, difficult diagnoses, and applying theory to better understand clients' clinical presentations. Inma also supported me while I was earning my RPT (Registered Play Therapist) credentials. She is highly knowledgeable about play therapy and expressive therapy techniques and supportive of clinicians who are familiarizing themselves for the first time with these therapeutic interventions. I benefited greatly from meeting with Inma and learning from her, and I am a better clinician because of her guidance". Lindsay Eidman, LICSW
