Social Work Career and Life – Two daunting experiences.
As a new social work practitioner, your top priority is to provide ethical and competent services to meet the needs of your clients. Every day, you meet clients who are facing challenging situations, and they hope you will be able to help. You work diligently to employ your social work knowledge, values, and skills but, undoubtedly, you have moments when you worry you’re not up to the job.
It can feel like you are all alone.
You want to be confident and competent in your social work practice, but too often, you feel all alone in the work. Sadly, many of new social workers find themselves without adequate support or supervision for such challenging and important work. Agencies are often short-staffed and supervision is not a priority. What would your professional life be like if you had the essential knowledge, values, and practice-skills, support, and confidence in your professional sense of self?
Find the support you need.
You need a strong relationship with a clinical supervisor to handle all that your social work career will throw at you. It is essential that you have a knowledgeable, skilled, trustworthy, and supportive supervisor. As a long-time field instructor, social work professor, and clinical supervisor, I have supported the professional development and launched successful social work careers of many new practitioners. The early part of your professional journey is a critical juncture of your social work career. You deserve the clinical supervision that will cultivate your practice skills and confidence.
Let’s work together.
My gift as a clinical supervisor is my ability to be fully present, deliberate, and engaged with you and your professional development. I bring 30 years of social work practice and 15 years of teaching experience to the supervisory relationship. I am especially skilled at creating a connected supervisory relationship in which I set the stage for you to grow into your best professional self. Meeting I provide both individual and group supervision for LSW-level and LGSW-level social workers who are seeking next-level licensure that meets the Minnesota state Board of Social Work licensure requirements. Let’s work together.
