Dr. D’Onofrio offers psychotherapy supervision that is psychodynamically and existentially informed. His approach emphasizes the development of the capacities to establish and keep secure the therapeutic frame, to attune to interpersonal process in the moment, and to listen and respond generatively to the patient’s unconscious communication and inner experience.
Licensed and license-eligible clinicians seeking supervision are encouraged to contact Dr. D’Onofrio to discuss his approach to supervision to determine the goodness-of-fit between his style and your supervisory needs.
Seminars and Workshops
Dr. D’Onofrio’s ability to translate complex scientific ideas and psychological processes into meaningful and eminently practical concepts has led him to be invited to speak to diverse groups that include mental health professionals, educators, and parent organizations. He offers professional development training to schools and mental health agencies and will work with your staff to develop a training experience that will excite and inspire your group.
