LCSW Supervision & Consultatation

Supervision

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.

Consultation

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.

Are you feeling stuck, confused or frustrated with a client?

Clinical Case Consultation is the opportunity for established clinicians to discuss, explore, and develop enhanced strategies in confronting obstacles to quality client care, such as the transference and counter-transference issues that are a force in the therapeutic relationship.

Are you having difficulty maintaining appropriate boundaries with a client or those involved in the case?

Clinical Case Consultation is the opportunity to understand and manage ethical dilemmas with clients and in the practice setting.

Are you encountering issues outside your area of expertise? Are you curious about other theoretical frameworks and best-practices for client care that will deepen your understanding and work with clients?

Clinical Case Consultation is the opportunity to:

  • 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

Are you transitioning from the community/group setting into private practice?

Clinical Consultation guides you as you balance the clinical and administrative aspects that challenge independent practitioners; ensures continued professional development and expanded clinical competency, as you reach and retain clients for practice growth.

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.

The path is different for each person, and changes as we move through our lives. We will partner to realize the path that meets your needs at this moment in your life.
