I provide a safe and non-judgmental space for social workers to process their work and develop professionally. With expertise in trauma treatment, mental health disorders, and various therapeutic modalities, I offer a comprehensive mentoring relationship that extends beyond licensure requirements. Take the first step towards your professional growth with a complimentary initial conversation.
Empowering Therapists to Grow and Thrive
Clinical supervision is an important part of the licensure process. Like a therapeutic relationship, good supervision is about finding the right fit. It works best when you feel comfortable and confident about who you obtain supervision from. You need to be able to be yourself and process your work in a safe and non-judgmental space. So much of growing as a therapist is processing what comes up for you as you do this work. It is vital that both parties, the supervisor and supervisee, feel good about the work they do together. I offer an initial conversation at no charge to get a feel for whether or not we want to step into this process together.
I have worked in the field since 2002, starting in a domestic violence shelter, the Underground Railroad, managing admissions and providing survivor advocacy. I completed my BSW internship at a Children's Advocacy Center, investigating child sexual abuse, and continued in my role after graduation. After completing my MSW, I returned to the Underground Railroad as a domestic violence and sexual assault therapist, providing individual and group treatment. Following this employment, I worked in various departments of an extensive hospital system, offering crisis assistance, treatment planning, and counseling. After taking a break to raise my young children, I began working in private practice in 2021, treating trauma and mental health disorders. I have training in somatic modalities, psychodrama, experiential therapy, polyvagal techniques, DBT and CBT, family systems, crisis intervention, and EMDR.
I attended Saginaw Valley State University in Michigan for my undergrad in Social Work and obtained my Master's degree from the University of Toronto, specializing in social justice and diversity. I have been a fully Licensed Clinical Social Worker since 2008. I hope to develop a long-term mentoring relationship with each of my supervisees, extending past your licensure requirements if desired.
