Anything else you want to add?
As an experienced Social Worker working in leadership I struggled to find a supervisor who would be able to support me in my clinical practice as well as in my leadership and management development. That fact motivated me to provide supervision to Social Workers and other professionals who may have had similar experiences.
My children are being raised bilingual (German/ English) and bi-cultural and therefor I believe I have some insights into bi-culturalism.
Outside of my work life I enjoy and believe in an active and healthy lifestyle.I offer supervision via Skype or face to face at a location convenient to you. I am based in rural Hamilton
