Clinical supervision for those seeking LCSW

Hello. I have always been enthused about training, supervising, and mentoring the next generation of behavioral health and wellness professionals. Social Work is challenging, but very rewarding work. I come from a family of helping professionals. So, perhaps it’s in my blood. I enjoy the diversity of my supervisees and getting to know and mentor new people. Despite all of the differences, we all share a desire to help, heal, and better ourselves and our community.


My Approach

I believe in life-long learning. I believe social work supervision is a collaborative approach. I believe in accountability. I believe self-care is an essential piece of longevity as a professional helper. I believe learning should be fun (at least most of the time). I believe in unconditional acceptance. I believe in utilizing your strengths. I believe you are worth investing in.If you’re looking for a more clinical answer, I favor cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused therapy, positive psychology, motivational interviewing, and strengths based interventions.


 I have been a Mental Health clinician for the past 15  years and a Licensed Clinical Social  Worker for seven years.  I   am  a  certified clinical supervisor  and  have  provided clinical supervision for  those  seeking  their  LCSW  for  several  years.


I am uniquely qualified to supervise professionals working as case managers/case workers or psychotherapists. I have supervised well over 60  interns and pre-licensed professionals working in community mental health, home health care, homeless shelters and serving populations including adolescents, transition aged youth, older adults, dually diagnosed adults, veterans, the chronically homeless, families in crisis.

All  of  my  candidates  have  gone  on  to  receive  their LCSW.
