I am a Licensed Clinical social worker (LCSW) that draws from diverse training and 25 years experience in cognitive-behavorial, developmental, family systems, psychodynamic, and experiential approaches to guide you to discover the clinical approach that works best for you. Let's work together as a team to creatively explore how you can develop and thrive as a clinical social worker.
It is essential to allow your feelings and humanness to be involved in clinical interactions. Being open to what you are feeling allows discernment, empathy, and intuition. Clear, effective clinical care requires looking at the counter-transference you inevitably feel with your clients. Are you feeling judgement, sympathy, protectiveness or (God-forbid) attraction to him/her? Acknowledging your feelings allows them to become conscious which empowers you to effectively manage them.
