About Paula Ochs
About Paula Ochs, LCSW, TEP
I am an experienced practitioner, supervisor*, and educator of
family therapy, and a Trainer, Educator, Practitioner of
psychodrama practicing in Northern New Jersey. I founded
Chrysalis Clinical Supervision and Training in 2009, because I
strongly believe in the power of relationships to heal and in the
mind/body connection. I am dedicated to the professional
development of psychotherapists including social workers, family
therapists, and counselors, at all levels as well as psychologists
and psychiatrists who want to understand the impact of family
relationships on their patients/clients.
I specialize in Supervision in Action TM and Family Therapy in
Action TM. These modalities utilize the mind/body connection. I
recently wrote an article, Using Action Methods in Clinica
l Supervision: A Journey from Talk to Action, which was published
in the journal Social Work in Groups in 2020. I have organized and
presented many workshops and conferences, most notably,
Alternatives to Medication for Children. I also provide consultation
for agencies and schools in the area.
In addition to Chrysalis Clinical Supervision & Training, I am the
Associate Clinical Director of Family Service League, a not-for-
profit agency that provides individual, couple, family, and
group counseling services to the community in Northern NJ; a staff
TEP at the Psychodrama & Creative Arts Therapy Institute of NYC;
and an Adjunct Professor at NYU and Columbia.
I have 17 years of intensive training in psychodrama which has
enhanced my ability to work with trauma victims and to train
clinicians in this difficult work. I received my TEP (Trainer, Educator,
and Practitioner) certification in 2020, the highest certification in
the field of psychodrama.
I present my work on Family Therapy in Action and Supervision in
Action at conferences nationally, internationally, and do trainings at
local universities. For upcoming workshops, see my home page.
I am a member of AAMFT, ASGPP, ISEPP (International Society for
Ethical Psychology & Psychiatry) and NASW.
