Amanda Courter, LCSW, CCM

I am fascinated by people—the variety of coping mechanisms different people use in the same situation, the way people deal with trauma and grief. I once told a patient how sorry I was that he had lost his mother recently, and he responded, "It's okay. It won't happen again." In this field, you will never have a day just like yesterday!

I hope that individual supervision will give prospective LCSWs another view point to add to their practices. There is the classroom, your fellow students, your internships, group supervision, and then your individual supervision where students can examine, analyze, and develop their own personal styles.

I hope new professionals act like sponges and try to take everything in, good and bad, that they observe and then filter out what they want to keep and what they want to toss. I also hope they wade into the field confidently, not jump in and get burned.

WORDS I LIVE BY:
Listen 70% of the time. Speak 30% of the time. The results are surprising every time!
