    Clinical Supervision for Licensed Master Social Workers in Texas


    Clinical Supervision

    Making the decision to start clinical supervision can bring a mix of emotions from anxiety to excitement. The supervision process is about more than just getting your hours this can be what shapes you into the therapist that you become. It is important to have a supervisor that understands and respects not only your professional goals but also you as a person. Clinical supervision is rooted in an understanding that while you are a professional, you are also human.

    What to expect

    • Increased understanding and use of the NASW Code of Ethics
    • Addressing the following areas of social work: Clinical, Educational, Supportive and Administrative.
    • Exploration of intervention modalities and best practices
    • Growth professionally and personally
    • Real-life conversations

    When an LMSW is under supervision, they typically meet with their supervisor for 4 hours per month. I only offer individual virtual supervision which means you can live anywhere in Texas and participate in supervision. You must meet with your supervisor for 100 total hours in no less than 24 months, and it cannot take longer than 48 months to complete supervision.

    If you work part-time, you need to be working at least 15 hours per week to complete supervision within 48 months. Part-time employees will need one hour of supervision per 40 work hours (usually 2-3 supervision hours per month). 3000 total practice/work hours are required before you can apply to sit for the licensing exam.

    You can find more information regarding licensing requirements at the Texas Board of Social Work Examiners.
