Kevin R. Birdsell, LCSW

I chose this career path because I love seeing other people succeed. There are many out there who have the ability to excel in life but need a helping hand.

I was lucky to have an incredible supervisor/mentor when I graduated from school. That individual had a huge impact on my career and helped in so many ways. Supervision is my way of returning the favor and creating a positive experience for someone else. Providing clinical supervision is one my favorite aspects of work.

I hope that new professionals can develop a core set of skills and a "style" that they can translate to any work environment. I love to discuss people's career goals and help them identify some potential areas to explore.
