Individual Supervision for Licensure
Steve has many years of experience providing Clinical Supervision to MSW Social Workers who are preparing for licensure. His areas of specialty include:
Steve Szopa, LCSW
Mary Jean Kane, LCSW
My approach to supervision and therapy is warm, interactive, and collaborative. I help clinicians to become aware of their strengths and to develop their own personal style. I have extensively studied and trained in contemporary relational theory, including Self Psychology and Intersubjectivity.
I strive to help clinicians discern and work with the ways in which their patients’ emotional experience is organized and how those patterns of organization impact and repeat in their patients’ lives. Part of the learning includes how to recognize and work with how emotions are felt in the body. I also encourage clinicians to track their emotions and experience of patients and to use this information in the service of their work. My theory base affirms that individuals are striving for wholeness and in this way de-pathologizes their symptoms. This reduces shame and gives patients a new relational experience. I am on the teaching faculty of the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis and am a contemporary relational psychoanalyst.
