So, you’re really doing it. You’ve decided that you want to be a clinical social worker.
We all go down this path for a different reason. For some of us, it’s a personal connection we have to this line of work. It may have been something that happened to us or a loved one. Or, this mysterious something happened completely outside of us and our experience. Either way, it often follows the same pattern. We saw something happen. It may have been a situation, system, or person experiencing something that didn’t sit with us. But, we want to do something about it. So, we pursue a master’s degree in social work. Step 1 towards the world a better place, complete. Now we come to the next step, clinical supervision.
This is why you’re here right now, to find a clinical supervisor!
You want to discover all the interesting areas you can work in social work. By now, you’re most likely aware of the level of independence and increase in income you can have. Obtaining independent licensure is the key to making all these dreams a reality. Clinical licensure allows you to practice within your scope of expertise. Also, clinical licensure allows you more freedom in your practice. And sometimes, it allows you to be your own boss.
What you can expect in clinical supervision in Madison, AL
A little more about me
Often, I have heard the question” Did you always know you wanted to be a therapist?” Or, “have you always known what you wanted to do with your social work degree?” When I entered my social work program during undergrad, I knew that the “typical” idea of social work would not be the best fit for me. I love to experience a great quality of life. I do not like to be very stressed and burdened. And, I love my freedom. And to be the best for the people I serve, it is important to meet these components. Self-care, boundaries, and expectations are cornerstone components. Not only for my style of clinical supervision but my life as a clinical social worker.
What you will gain from having me as your clinical supervisor
In working with me, you will feel confident in many different areas. During clinical supervision, you will develop skills that you keep throughout your career. Yes, we’ll cover the academic and professional components of our time together. We’ll discuss the different experiences we are encountering. And, address any disconnect between what we’ve learned in the classroom and what we see in person. Also, you will build confidence in your ability to pass the licensure exam. What’s more, you will feel more confident in your role as a clinician. And, your role as you contribute to promoting the welfare of others.
