The work we will do together is the work of transformation.
A positive mindset, compassion, and creativity are the building blocks that support professional development, personal growth, and self-care.
Most of us, at some point or another, find ourselves overwhelmed, stressed, worried, or just plain tired of trying to balance all that life has thrown our way. Sometimes, we just feel stuck, negative, & can’t see what’s possible or what’s next. If this is true for you, you are not alone.
It can seem impossible to make time for professional development and personal growth.
No matter how diligent and proactive you are, there are many responsibilities clambering for your attention. You work to balance your work-life responsibilities, personal health and well-being, relationships with friends and family, and plain old time to rest. All the while, you have an ongoing dialogue with yourself, silently negotiating your worry that, maybe, attending to your professional development or personal well-being is simply not possible.
But, in fact, it is POSSIBLE! And you don’t have to go it alone!
Intentionally devoting time to think out loud, to be in dialogue with someone outside of your daily life, to be heard, and to get support from others, is a wise step toward your well-being.
If you are a new social worker, you might be wishing for more inspired and inspiring supervision that will propel you further into your professional career and support your competence and confidence. You might be searching for a supervisor outside of your agency, but not sure how to go about finding the right person.
There is no time like the present to take action and focus on your professional development, personal growth, and self-care.
Attitudes of Hope, Resilience, Creativity, Innovation, Inspiration
It is in this spirit that I offer each of my services. In my work as a clinical supervisor and social worker, and through individual sessions and group work, I employ practices informed by cognitive behavioral therapy, positive psychology, and mindfulness. I integrate creative, experiential, and therapeutic approaches. These include poetry, journaling, creativity, music, and practices of mindfulness, self-compassion, kindness, and gratitude – all powerful and transformational tools for professional development, personal growth, and well-being.
