Clinical Supervision


Clinical Supervision:​

My New Days provides a pathway to independent licensure for licensed social workers (LSW) and for licensed associate counselors (LAC) by providing individual or small group supervision. 


An aspiring independent therapist must be aware that the role of the clinical supervisor will vacillate between tutor, teacher, mentor, consultant, and evaluator; therefore the feedback loop is essential to the success of the supervisor-supervisee relationship. 

Most aspiring independent therapists require one hour of individual supervision for every 30-35 hours of clinical work. 

Dahiana’s Qualifications:

  • Twelve years of supervision experience

  • Twenty years of direct practice experience 

  • Certificate in clinical supervision

  • SIFI from Rutgers University

My New Days fosters a shared leadership culture in the supervisory relationship, thus the aspiring independent therapist holds the responsibility of:

  • Maintaining an active liability insurance policy and provide a copy to My New Days supervisor indicating coverage of the supervisor as an "additional insured" on the policy.

  • Strictly abiding by the NASW Code of Ethics and by the licensure code outlined by the NJ Board of Social Work Examiners or the NJ Board of Licensed Professional Counselors.

  • Maintaining a detailed and HIPAA compliant log of their direct and indirect clinical hours, including a list of assigned clients seen; this log must be provided to My New Days supervisor on a quarterly basis, and agree to maintain documentation as outlined by their site of employment.

  • Knowing that My New Days is not an all encompassing expert in all clinical licensure procedures. 

  • Clearly and completely understanding the licensure requirements of their own board by reading in full the documents found on the NJ Social Work Board or the NJ Board of Licensed Professional Counselors’ websites.

My New Days will assist aspiring independent therapists in:

  • Becoming aware of their family of origin dynamics and the impact on client’s therapeutic process. 

  • Exploring biasses, stereotypes, transference, and counter-transference in their work. 

  • Developing ethical practices and best practice approaches. 

  • Creating and consistently utilizing sound clinical decision making skills and problem solving steps. 

  • Learning and practicing process level interventions and documentation. 

  • Exploring the use of professional self- disclosure and genogram work. 

  • Balancing professional versus personal life domains and effectively managing self-care, team-care, and burn-out.
