Welcome! While under supervision for my licensure, I found myself hungering for knowledge beyond my formal education. What does practice really look like in the real world, and how do I pass the board? These are the challenges I'm prepared to help you resolve. If you are committed, I can help you pass the state board the first time, and be prepared for clinical interventions and a rewarding career. From finding your niche, to resolving personal roadblocks, we can work together to make you the most effective clinician you were meant to be.

For your convenience, I have included additional information below, in addition to a step-by-step guide on how to get started.

I am currently offering in person and tele-supervision to any social workers within South Carolina as approved by the Board of Social Work Examiners. If you are outside SC, let me know! I may still offer convenient remote supervision based on your state's board approval with an easy-to-use, HIPAA-compliant online platform. ​

Let's Get Started

Step 1: Review Board Requirements

Whether you're a seasoned social worker, or just beginning your journey, you will likely need to review the South Carolina Board of Social Work Supervision Requirements. If you believe you have completed the appropriate coursework, continue to review supervision guidelines and supervision contract. Prepare any questions you might have about the process.


For your convenience, I have included the links below:

1. Required Coursework for Applicants

2. LISW_Supervison Guidelines

3. Supervision_Contract: To be submitted prior to the initiation of supervision 

Step 2: Contact Me

After reviewing the above requirements, contact me to discuss the supervision goals and review your completed contract together. We will ensure we are a good fit for each other and create a plan to submit to the board.

Step 3: Submit Contract to SC LLR BOARD

Submit the completed contract to the SC Board of Social Work according to contract instructions. Don't hesitate to contact the Board after submittal to ensure it has been received, and request estimated approval timeline. If approval has not been received within the timeline, I recommend you contact the Board once more to request an update.

Step 4: Regular Tele-Supervision, on the Road to Licensure! 

According to the contract agreement, we will meet for regular supervision using a private, HIPAA-compliant, online format. When 100 hours of supervision have been completed, along with other board requirements, you will earn your LISW-CP!
