I provide supervision for the western suburbs of Chicago, Illinois. Currently I offer groups in Warrenville, Illinois on the border between Warrenville and Naperville.
I am providing LCSW (Licensed Clinical Social Work) supervision because of my own challenges securing clinical supervision when I was a new social worker. Also, I had the honor of supervising three MSW students while working at Linden Oaks Hospital and found it an enriching experience.
I provide individual or group supervision for LSW’s working towards their LCSW. If you need your LCPC (Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor) licensure, I can refer you to an excellent therapist at the same practice who does this. Groups tend to be the preferred method as they are a way to be part of a community of social workers thereby allowing you to hear what other new social workers are doing as well as being more economical.
- Groups are limited to five people.
- They will be for two hours approximately twice a month.
- The fee is $25/hour or $50/session.
- We will adjust our meeting times around holidays and summers.
- Everyone in the supervision group receives one “pass”, meaning they will not be charged if they do not show up without 48 hours notice. After that, you will be required to pay for missed sessions
If interested in group, or individual supervision contact me at (331) 444-2342 or firstname.lastname@example.org .
