Supervision of Certified Social Work Associates
I earned my Masters of Social Work at Portland State University in 2005 and I am licensed by the Oregon Board of Licensed Social Workers. I have been licensed as an LCSW since 2013 and I am a member of the National Association of Social Workers. I have completed the required hours of coursework in clinical supervision and have met all requirements for supervising MSW interns and CSWA’s in the state of Oregon. I provide group and individual supervision of Certified Social Work Associates. Please visit the website for the board of licensed social workers for information and applications to begin the credentialing process.
The process of supervision requires that you be open to talking about yourself, your family of origin, and assumptions and biases that you bring to this work. We will discuss these as they relate to clinical practice. Supervision is an interactive and collaborative process intended to monitor the quality of client care, improve clinical skills and facilitate professional and personal growth. We will create supervision goals together which will be developed in accordance to your learning objectives.
My professional experience includes acute psychiatric residential treatment, child abuse assessment and intervention with the Department of Human Services, therapeutic family time for DHS involved families, private practice out-patient mental health, in-home therapy with children and adults, and founder and Executive Director of a local non-profit.
My clinical experience has focused on trauma, foster and adoption issues, depression, anxiety, sexual abuse, relationship issues, PTSD, LGBTQ community, and life transitions. I approach counseling and supervision from a holistic perspective and integrate client centered/humanistic and psychodynamic theories. I use mindfulness based approaches along with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and others.
