Supervision for Early Career Social Workers
I believe good supervision helps you to develop as a professional and supports you as a person. It also protects against burnout, an all-too-common problem in the mental health field.
I’m passionate about supporting early career social workers to navigate the system without sacrificing their energy—so you can be in this field sustainably for the long haul!
As a supervisor, I am guided by my training in social work, the NASW code of ethics, and the practices of reflective supervision. I bring my experience working in schools, residential treatment, and community mental health and the skills/awareness I’ve developed through training in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, EMDR, Trauma Systems Therapy, Synergetic Play Therapy, motivational interviewing, trauma-informed care, trauma-informed yoga and mindfulness, and yoga for children and adolescents.
We will work collaboratively to create an agenda each time we meet to support you to reflect on your thoughts, feelings, values, and experiences as an early career social worker. Appointments take place at an agreed upon frequency: weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, etc.
Only the paradox comes anywhere near to comprehending the fullness of life.
