Empowered Clinicians Program

My Hustle-2.png

Empowered Clinicians is a professional mentorship program for NC & VA provisionally licensed clinicians who are newly licensed, with little to no clinical experience. You may be seeking to get your feet wet slowly and not feel like you aren't allowed the time to build your skill and craft. In the Empowered Clinicians program, you will be led by Whitney Smith, LCSW in all clinical treatment that she specializes in. You will have a caseload of 4-5 sessions per week at Release it Counseling. Many agencies that offer free supervision to their staff, they require one to maintain a full caseload. This can be stressful to new clinicians, and quite often intimidating. The Empowered Clinicians program is to assist in helping new clinicians build their confidence, find their niche all while being adequately clinically trained. When one is in clinical supervision they should feel confident as a professional and their clinical abilities. The Empowered Clinicians program allows one to be introduced into the clinical work experience and supervision with confidence, without feeling overwhelmed of having a full caseload.
