Supervision Interests/Approaches/Type:
My approach is to work with a strengths based outlook to provide a safe space in order to enable reflective thought with an eye on personal wellbeing and professional growth. I have social work experience primarily in the education field, working with adolescents and their families, mental health assessment and therapeutic interventions and working with related professionals. As a supervisor I have worked with social workers with a variety of roles, from students to experienced social work practitioners and managers. I am also experienced and enjoy working with those who are new to supervision or from allied professions where professional supervision is not common practice.
Additional Information: I am able to work both in person or with a digital platform.
