Clinical Supervision

clinical philosInterns

I am available for private or agency-based supervision of interns looking to meet California license supervisory training and hours.  As a former adjunct faculty professor at the Smith College School for Social Work and a CE seminar facilitator, I am aware of the clinical skills needed for you to meet LCSW qualifications and move forward in your professional career.  I have been a full-time psychotherapist and mental health consultant for over 18 years.  In that time, I have supervised and/or consulted with many colleagues.  In addition, I authored the book Becoming a Social Worker: Reflections on a Clinician’s Transformative Journey, published by While Hat Communications, the publishing company of The New Social Worker magazine and website.

I am also available to provide CEU credits (CAMFT CEU provider #133219) for in-service training seminars and workshops on a variety of mental health and practice topics.  Please inquire about any specific clinical topic or issue that your agency or organization would like to consult about.  Listed below are some of the topics I have provided consultation and trainings for.
