The supervisor-supervisee relationship is a unique one, in which there is openness and trust on both sides. Clinical Social Work supervision is an ongoing and evolving process which aims to strike a balance between developing Social Work and Clinical skills into your individual voice, while understanding and mastering the administrative components of Social Work; all the while preparing for your eventual LCSW exam and foray into the practice of Clinical Social Work.
I offer Clinical Social Work Supervision that is designed to enhance your clinical and professional skills, knowledge, and attitudes in order to achieve competency in your Social Work identity and in providing quality clinical care. I am a Texas State Board of Social Worker Examiners approved Clinical Supervisor.
Because I value each person’s unique learning style and lens of doing clinical work, I use an eclectic model to approach supervision, drawing on the psychodynamic and attachment models, cognitive-behavioral model, relational and developmental models.
I bring my extensive training and experience to the supervision room, including:
- treating children/adolescents/adults and families
- experience in the hospital/community agency and private practice setting
- collaborative treatment between complimentary mental health disciplines
- developmental issues, personality and character logical issues, attachment issues?
- incorporating progressive intervention to best meet the needs of individual clients
- administrative and ethical experience from the perspective of program management and Clinical Directorship and Supervision
I offer dynamic, challenging and supportive clinical Social Work Supervision. Supervision utilizes case presentations, discussion and reading material to strengthen your theoretical framework and develop strategies and interventions for best client care; and, understanding ethical and administrative issues as you discover you voice as a Clinical Social Worker.
Whether you have been a licensed and practicing clinician for one year or twenty, you will encounter clinical situations that challenge your clinical knowledge, skills and comfort level. Consultation takes on many forms, from situational case consultation to a mastery of theory and technique. It’s important to recognize the value of continuing to increase our clinical competence and refine practice knowledge and skills throughout evolving careers as psychotherapists.
- explore theories of psychotherapy (such as psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, family systems, attachment)
- examine clients through different lenses
- integrate the mastery of new strategies and interventions into your practice
I offer dynamic, challenging and supportive clinical consultation to help you identify obstacles, use discussion and reading material to expand your theoretical framework, and master strategies and interventions for best client care.
