Silvana Espinoza Lau, LMFT
Anti-oppressive, decolonised, and social justice oriented healing.
CLINICAL SUPERVISION AND CONSULTATION
I am an OBLPCT-approved supervisor candidate. I have experience in community mental health, pre-ACT treatment, OP and IOP, community outreach, residential, and crisis. I have worked with children, adolescents, and adults providing individual, relationship, and group counseling. I have experience with SPMI, personality disorders, mood disorders, adjustment disorders, and life transitions. I offer anti-oppressive and social justice oriented supervision and consultation in English and Spanish.
Individual, triadic, and group supervision
I offer online supervision to LPC and LMFT associates in the state of Oregon from a relational, systemic, and social justice approach. My main theoretical orientations are psychodynamic, systemic, liberation psychology, and ACT. Although I heavily rely on IFS, Gestalt, Jungian analysis, Decolonised Non-Violent Communication (DNVC), and Pedagogy of the Oppressed as well.
My focus is on helping you intersubjectively process your client interactions and your choice of intervention in the moment. I value the importance of processing the relational component of therapy, the use of immediacy and appropriate self-disclosure in session as well as the self of the therapist.
I specialise in working with underrepresented and systemically marginalised populations on values clarification, self-compassion, self-care/community care, burnout, imposter syndrome, colonialism, intergenerational trauma, acculturation, racial identity, and micro/macro systems of oppression.

I offer a 60-minute initial consultation free of charge to discuss how we could best work together.
One-time or ongoing individual and group consultation
I offer online clinical consultation to any licensed clinician working with BIPOC, multiracial, and/or Latinx/e/a/o clients using a relational, systemic, and social justice lens.
I also offer clinical consultation to any clinician (licensed or prelicensed) seeking to mindfully process the following:
Power dynamics, vicarious trauma, and conflicts within their agencies or organisations.
Use of self, self-disclosure, transference/countertransference, intersubjectivity, and immediacy.
Implicit bias, unfiltered internal reactions, and preconceived notions.
Authentic self-care and community-care.
I also provide clinical consultation to clinicians who want to incorporate anti-oppressive, liberatory, and decolonised practices in their work.
