Supervisor Bio & Focus
Sherry's Focus & Strengths:
Sherry's Words . .
"I received poor supervision at an externship during my Grad program that left me crying many times, believing I couldn't do anything to please this Supervisor. I was even scared I wouldn't receive a passing grade yet I got an unexpected A.
It was then I promised myself to become a Supervisor and never, ever treat my supervisees as I was treated .
I absolutely keep to that promise."
"I want you to have encouragement & guidance to grow into the absolute best therapist you can possibly be."
