Clinical Social Work Supervision

I have a strong interest in helping to shape the next generation of clinical social workers and provide clinical social work supervision. In addition to having served as a social work supervisor with many agencies and organizations, I have been both a graduate school social work field work supervisor and public health practicum preceptor. I have also been a social work lecturer in the US and abroad.


I provide consultative services to training, clinical and community organizations and individuals in my specialized areas of practice.
