I am a Certified Clinical Supervisor for both LSWs and LCSWs. My approach in supervision is collaborative and supportive. Your professional development and therapeutic competence are the key to your growth as a social worker.
You can expect to cultivate your awareness, case conceptualization and exploration of transference and countertransference throughout our supervision. I believe that the strength of the supervisory relationship is one of the most important factors and aim to ensure that our work together is individualized and tailored to your needs and professional goals.
My goal is to help you become an intuitive and clinically astute therapist with sound theoretical understanding to support your intervention. In doing so, my responsibilities as supervisor are twofold:
To help you become aware of your strengths and reinforce them.
To help you identify your “growing edges,” which are areas you have yet to cultivate.
I hope to be able to provide a safe space for you not only to share your “wins” in therapy, but the safety to be able to make mistakes and learn and grow from those challenges.
I have been practicing social work for almost 20 years and practice from a psychodynamic and attachment lens. I have been extensively trained in Attachment Based Family therapy. The focus of my work has been with adolescents and their families, young adults and adults doing individual, group, family and couples therapy. Additionally, I am a part time lecturer for Rutgers University’s Graduate School of Social Work, teaching Clinical Social Work I (Theory and Practice with Individuals) and Clinical Social Work II (Theory and Practice with Groups, Families and Couples.)
