Supervision for MSWs

Clinical Supervision for social workers is available with Valerie McGuinness, LCSW. All masters level social workers are required to have direct clinical review by a fully licensed social worker for the purpose of training and teaching. According to the Georgia Secretary of State Licensing board the purpose of supervision is to promote the development of the practitioner's clinical skills through the use of presentations and review of specific cases.

When you meet with Valerie for your supervision hours, you can split the time with other professionals, or meet individually. We will discuss ethics, personal challenges, and your specific cases as needed along with Diagnostic Criteria and decision making in treatment. Valerie has experience with emergency assessments, treatment planning, severe and persistent mental illness, substance abuse and the legal system, in home and in clinic services. Please contact her for a resume and references if desired. Detailed documentation of your hours will be provided to you at the end of each month. Flexible meeting times and Web-based conferencing available for those outside of the Athens area or those with busy schedules. Availability for ongoing meetings or single case consultations. 

Rate: $60/hour for individual 

Group rates negotiable based on size of group.
