Jacklyn Chung, RP, CCC
I wholeheartedly believe that there’s no such thing as a “master therapist”. I would like to think that pioneers like Carl Rogers and Irvin Yalom needed clinical supervision as well. Psychotherapy is a unique science and sometimes it is difficult to explain how therapy even works – but you’ve been there, it works, and it feels like magic. Tell you what – I don’t think it’s magic. I think it’s more explainable than that.
We are constantly learning and growing in our personal lives. If we embrace the humility of the human experience, we can build human connections that are healing and therapeutic. My overarching approach to clinical supervision is to provide clinicians with a safer place to process the complex experience of being a human being that is helping other people through their human processes. Clinical supervision is an extension of clinical practice; and as such, my approach in clinical supervision is informed by my practice in clinical work as a psychotherapist. I take the lenses of trauma-informed, culturally sensitive, and feminist theories to inform my approach to building and sustaining therapeutic relationships and informing therapeutic change.
I enjoy working with therapists who are open to deep introspection and reflection of their self-as-therapist identity. I encourage my supervisees to reflect on how transference, countertransference, SEUS, self-disclosure, intersectionality, and Imposter’s Syndrome inevitably show up and impact our clinical work.

My goal is to help you create a sustainable practice that is meaningful for your professional and personal growth. I aspire to be a reliable anchor as you curate your therapeutic style, develop your clinical portfolio, and embrace your journey as a lifelong learner.
