Hello and thank you for visiting my page!
I have over 10 years experience providing
supervision to new and experienced social workers at various career levels. I am fully licensed to provide supervision in
the state of Michigan for both macro and clinical practice. I thoroughly enjoy the supervision aspect of
my practice. I utilize a collaborative/coaching
approach that emphasizes the clinician’s strengths and develops skills that promote
the values of general social work practice.
During both individual and group supervision sessions I provide a
relaxing and supportive atmosphere that fosters openness and sincere
reflection. Supervisees can expect to cover
a wide variety of topics, including but not limited to, practice, policy,
ethics, self care, assessment and intervention.
My experience includes practice and management of
programs in several domains, including child welfare, mental health, and aging
services. I have many years of experience
using cognitive-behavioral techniques such as solution focused therapy,
exposure therapy and mindfulness. My
clinical focus includes working with individuals who suffer from anxiety and
stress related issues with a specific emphasis on work related stress.
I attended Wayne State University, where I
obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, a Master’s degree in Social Work
and the Graduate Certificate for Working with Couples and Families. I later obtained a Master’s degree in Management with a specialty in Strategic Leadership from Walsh College of Business and Accountancy.
I have one
darling daughter, who has been my inspiration.
In my spare time, I enjoy reading, writing and early morning walks. I am a native of Michigan, where I continue
to enjoy the change of seasons and beautiful landscapes.
