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.
Inma emphasizes the importance of collaborative supervisory relationships in which she appreciates learning from her supervisees while instilling knowledge and skills. She integrates techniques and interventions with theory, paying attention to counter-transference and transference issues. The main theories that inform her practice include psychodynamic theory, attachment, social learning, and cognitive-behavioral theories.
Inma is a board approved registered supervisor in the state of Maryland and can supervise those clinicians working towards their MD license. 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
