Jennifer has over 15 years experience in higher education, most of which has been spent in academic advising of college students, as well as teaching Student Life Skills courses. These courses are designed to help students discover their strengths, values, and interests so they can select a college major and eventually pursue the career of their dreams. Jennifer's experience transfers directly to the supervision process. She is supercharged about helping people find their specialty in social work practice and be the expert "go-to" person in that area. Jennifer considers social work education and supervision to be one of her primary specialties. For information on her other primary practice areas, please click here.
Five weeks before graduating with my MSW, my Micro Social Work professor pulled me aside and flatly told me, "You'll never make it as a therapist." She strongly advised me to leave the profession. Not long after receiving my degree, I took her horrible advice and gave up on my dream. It was largely due to insecurity and being grossly uneducated about Florida laws and rules. I had difficulty finding an internship because I misunderstood how liberal Florida is with its internship requirements (compared to my home state of New York).
Ten years later, I managed to get back on track. But I wonder, what would have happened if I found a social work supervisor who could have set me straight early on? If only I had known how ridiculously easy it is to get my Florida license, I could have started my career a decade earlier.
That professor is my inspiration to be the best mentor I can possibly be, which is essentially, the complete opposite of what she was to me!
If you are someone who is freaking out or suffering from impostor syndrome, let me assure you, YOU CAN DO THIS. Whether you are trying to get licensed or you're already an LCSW who needs help starting a private practice, let me offer you an opportunity to learn from my mistakes, come alongside you, and be the cheerleader to you that I never had.
