About Paula Ochs

About Paula Ochs LCSW, CP, PAT

I am an experienced practitioner, supervisor*, and educator of
family therapy, and a certified psychodramatist, 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

I specialize in Supervision in Action
TM and Family Therapy in
TM. These modalities recognize and utilize the mind/body
connection. I recently co-authored an article, Family Therapy
Supervision in Action, which was published in the
Journal for
Psychodrama, Sociometry and Group Psychotherapy
. I have
organized and presented many workshops and conferences, most
notably, Alternatives to Medication for Children.

I am also 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. I
recently joined the Psychodrama & Creative Arts Therapy Institute
of NYC as a staff PAT .

In addition to my extensive training in family therapy, I have over 10
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 am a member of AAMFT, ASGPP, ISEPP (International Society for
Ethical Psychology & Psychiatry) and NASW.
