guidance and leadership

from a professional who is passionate about therapy

For Teresa, clinical supervision is about more than just receiving the necessary clinical hours. It is about honing one's therapy skills by building a a relationship with her mentees of support and understanding.  It is also about learning to value one's own personal limitations and challenges to ensure that as a therapist, we are caring for ourselves too.


Teresa provides clinical supervision to Master’s Level Social Workers who may be in need of clinical hours to sit for LCSW exam and fulfill requirements, or who are just wanting to enhance their clinical skills. She also provides ongoing consultation to fully licensed professionals in need of support with difficult cases, helps clinicians sharpen clinical skills and learn the importance of practicing self-care to prevent burnout.


During clinical supervision, you will have an opportunity to discuss cases, treatment strategies, and other important topics. Daily work with distraught people can be inherently distressing, so a key aspect of clinical supervision is often helping therapists learn to compartmentalize their own emotions and practice better self-care. Supervision requirements vary with the degree and license a therapist holds. In most cases, supervision takes a year or longer to complete. For example, in most states, licensed clinical social workers (LCSW) must complete at least 3,000 hours of clinical supervision.


Teresa is an experienced supervisor who is willing to take a proactive role. She is willing to help you explore the areas you hope to specialize in. Teresa offers both group and individual supervision. Supervision Groups are held bi-weekly and consultation groups are held monthly. Teresa works best with supervisees that take a proactive role in their supervision. She is a strong advocate for teamwork and participation. She offers valuable feedback during clinical supervision, which is an important way to help a new therapist grow. She encourages supervisees to bring specific questions and issues to supervision.  A 2013 study found that counselors rated their supervisor’s mentorship, not their education or training, as the most important factor in job performance. Working with someone who is willing to actively mentor you may offer the most value.  Consequently, Teresa promotes the value of mentorship among her team.
