"I have had the privilege of working with Adrienne for two years now. She is a fantastic mentor - knowledgeable and trust worthy, to say the least. When I first starting providing music therapy services, I had many questions, as all young professionals do. Adrienne went out of her way to provide me with insightful feedback and I always left supervision feeling refreshed - with new ideas and perspectives. Thank you, Adrienne!"
" Adrienne Pringle is an excellent supervisor who is knowledgeable, kind, honest, and thoughtful in her suggestions. It is clear each time we meet that she is able to look at situations from every viewpoint and consider a variety of approaches. I feel that Adrienne respects me as a colleague and that our time is both efficiently spent as well as meaningful."
"Adrienne is a warm and supportive supervisor. She takes a genuine interest in my personal growth, as well as my professional development. She understands my clinical challenges, and helps me to find the solutions which make sense for me and my music therapy approach. Adrienne often supplements her advice by directing me to the work of other professionals, helping me to access a variety of perspectives. And she is always encouraging me to look ahead; to consider what it is I want to do with my practice, and how I plan to make it happen."
