Cyd is rostered as a Clinical Supervisor for Licensed Clinical Social Workers (LCSW). She is also credentialed as a Qualified Supervisor for LPCAs- (21 NCAC 53 .0209). Her supervisory training includes but is not limited to NASW-Clinical Supervisory Training and 45 hours of Approved Clinical Supervisor Training through the University of NC at Greensboro. She has more than 10 years of supervisory experience and recently expanded Essential Journey Counseling Supervisory Services. She appreciates the opportunity to help newly licensed and experienced therapists advance their clinical skills while becoming more confident and accountable in their profession.
One of the most essential components of the licensure process is Clinical Supervision. It’s important that the supervisee and supervisor are a good fit. As a supervisor, Cyd embraces interactive communication, positive attitude, flexibility, critical thinking, empathy, and compassion. In order to build rapport and determine if Cyd is a good professional fit, she meets with supervision candidates to discuss clinical needs, goals, and expectations. Candidates will need to clearly verbalize their professional needs and be able to genuinely engage in the development of a trusting Supervisee/Supervisor relationship.
In addition to individual (one-on-one) supervision, Cyd also provides group supervision. Supervisees are able to obtain 25 of their required 100 hours of clinical supervision in the group setting. Group supervision is often less expensive and allows the opportunity to explore different ideas and obtain a range of feedback from peers in a safe learning environment.
