Clinical Supervision for MSW and Mental Health Interns:
I thoroughly enjoy my role as a supervisor. I love to collaborate with my supervisees on learning new tools and techniques in order to assist with their goals.
I have been a clinical supervisor since 1999. I am a Qualified Clinical Supervisor in the State of Florida. I have experience working with issues such as, wellness, mental health, psychiatric disorders, dual diagnosis, homeless, HIV/AIDS, trauma, and eating disorders. I have served the following populations: children, adolescents, adults and the elderly.
I utilize a consultation and toolbox (eclectic) approach to clinical supervision. I typically sees interns individually or in small groups.
I provide exam preparation and coaching to assist MSW's in taking the ASWB clinical social work exam.
Consultation for Licensed Psychotherapists:
I provide individual and group consultation for Licensed therapists and Private Practicioners. The group focuses on difficult cases, professional growth, and practice management issues.

"I did a very thorough search for the best clinical supervisor in South Florida. The choice was clear, it was Lisa Friedman. Lisa supervised my cases for two-years and in that time I always found her to be professional, well-informed and thoughtful. She was particularly effective with helping me to prepare for my licensing exam. I recommend her without reservation." Joanna Grover Watson, LCSW www.miamitherapyworks.com

"Lisa's clinical supervision has provided me with invaluable knowledge and guidance as I enter into the social work field and begin establishing my career. Her experience and expertise in dealing with trauma as well as general clinical skills have given me additional tools and ideas to use while gaining my own experience, and her supportive attitude and genuine commitment to guiding her supervisees has been both enlightening as well as comforting. I highly recommend her as a licensed supervisor to anyone who is hoping to further their knowledge and experience in the field!" -Nathalie Miniscalcom, MSW
"Lisa’s vast experience in the field and in her private practice was invaluable to me as I figured out where I belonged in social work. Over the last two years I have gained clinical and practical skills that will benefit me in any job I have. Lisa was able to provide me with practice and educational materials in addition to helpful hints as to what ASWB looks for during examination. I am proud to say that thanks to the test prep we did I passed the exam on the first try. I would recommend Lisa to anyone who needs an experienced social worker to help guide them like myself or for those who already have clinical skills and would like to fine tune them. "

When thinking about the qualities and characteristics that make for an ideal Clinical Supervisor, it goes without saying that Lisa is it! I was fortunate to get recommended to Lisa and from out first phone call setting up the first appointment, I knew that she was special. Lisa is able to relate to each individual and adapt to their personality. Her clinical experience and knowledge of the ASWB exam helped me in improving my clinical skills and passing my LCSW exam. Not only wasLisa was always available to answer questions and she was able to explain the questions in a manner that made sense. I couldn't recommended anyone better. Thanks Lisa for being you!
