Supervision

Love What You Do!

You’ve worked hard to get here.

You want to make a difference.

You need to feel guided and supported.

Great Clinical Supervision lights the path to making this a career you love making a positive difference in the lives of others.

Having worked in the field for over 15 years, I know how it is to be a new Social Worker full of passion in an often unforgiving set of systems that can seem to make it hard to help.

A good supervisor:

  • is empathetic, supportive, encouraging, and strengths-based,
  • wants you to succeed, gain confidence, and gain solid clinical skills,
  • is responsive when problems arise and helps you to find solutions that work for you and your Clients,
  • is grounded in ethical practice and issues of power, privilege, and diversity for both the Social Worker and Clients.

I offer individual and group supervision as a Board Approved Supervisor in Maryland. ​

Individual Clinical Supervision

The Maryland Board of Social Work requires Social Workers seeking clinical licensure to obtain 144 hours of clinical supervision.  Supervisees must receive a minimum of 3 hours of supervision per month. I offer twice monthly individual supervision meetings for 90 minutes each.

Social Workers receive 3 hours of individual supervision per month over a 24 month period for a total of 72 hours.  If combined with Group Supervision, Social Workers may obtain all required 144 supervision hours in 24 months.

Supervision will include case consultation and skills development, attention to ethical practice and issues of privilege, power, and diversity within your practice.

​Individual Supervision Fee is $300/month. Supervisees commit to a minimum of six months of attendance.  Missed meetings are not refundable and cannot be counted toward the Social Worker’s supervision hours.

​​Supervision is a significant investment in your skills, growth, and development as a clinician.  For most people, supervision fees are tax deductible.

How to Apply

New Social Workers who are interested in working with me can begin by reaching out and giving me a call or shoot me an email.

We want to spend some time getting to know each other.  Primarily, we need to be sure that we are a good fit.

This means that our schedules match up, the populations with which I work (or have worked), and the clinical modalities with which I treat clients, are a match for your current client base and your professional goals, and that our interpersonal styles are complimentary.

First and foremost, I want supervisees to feel comfortable opening up and that you will feel better for having met with me, not worse! Please note that my background is working with adolescents (male and female) and adults (female).

I work in a body-centered and mindfulness-based way that is highly trauma-informed.  I have specialized training in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, directive and non-directive play therapy techniques which I adapt to working with teens and adults, and I treat non-acute eating disorders, primarily women with concerns around over-eating and body image and women who may have been hospitalized in the past, but are now in recovery and seeking to maintain their recovery.

My practice is LGBT-affirming.

Please note that I will be asking for a copy of your resume and your first month’s fee at registration. Prior to beginning our work together, we will sign our supervision agreement. You will also need to have a supervisor at your agency sign a form approving our work together. ​

All new supervisees must obtain professional liability insurance.

Group Clinical Supervision

The Maryland Board of Examiners allows Social Workers seeking clinical supervision to obtain 72 of the required 144 supervision hours to be obtained through Group Supervision.

I offer twice monthly supervision groups meeting for 90 minutes each.  Social Workers may receive 3 hours of group supervision per month over a 24 month period for a total of 72 hours.

Group Supervision will be structured with time for clinical case consultation and clinical skills development based on the needs and interests of group members.

Group members interested in opening a private practice may also gain knowledge necessary for starting their business.

​Group Supervision fee is $175/month.

Supervisees commit to a minimum of six months of group attendance. Missed sessions are not refundable and cannot be counted toward the Social Worker’s supervision hours.

Supervision is a significant investment in your skills, growth, and development as a clinician.  For most people, supervision fees are tax deductible.

How To Apply

To register for Group Clinical Supervision, please reach out by phone or email.

I will want to hear about your expectations for group supervision, your work/field placement experience, and your areas of interest.

Please read this entire page and the rest of my website in order to learn about practice.

It is important that my scope of practice is a fit for your current case load and interests.

I am, of course, happy to answer any questions you have.  It’s a two-way interview! If we both feel that it is a good fit, then you will complete a registration process through my portal and I will request a copy of your resume.

The first month’s fee is due at the time of registration in order to hold your spot in the group.

This fee is refundable up to 30 days prior to the start of the group.

Group members may withdraw within 30 days of the start of group, but the first month’s fee is non-refundable at that point.

All clinical supervision group members must have professional liability insurance prior to the start of group supervision. ​

We will sign a group supervision agreement and you will need to have your current supervisor also sign a form approving and acknowledging your work with the group.
