"Kim Page went above and beyond as my LCSW supervisor. She was always available for consultation, even outside of our scheduled sessions. Her demeanor and wisdom was a priceless asset to me as I completed my hours towards my LCSW. While under her supervision, she helped me find the confidence to advance in my career. She assisted me with creating a proposal for a new position within my department based on my improving clinical skills. I firmly belief my clinical skills and my confidence improved because of specific skills I learned with Kim." -Katie Ledbetter, LCSW
"Kim was my first supervisor as a master’s level clinician and I could not have found a better fit. I needed a supervisor who would be able to help me to think creatively about my work being outside of a traditional clinical setting. Not only was Kim open to supervising me in my unique setting, but she was also intentional about helping me think through challenges and identify solutions that were both appropriate for my setting and incorporative of the Social Work code of ethics and values.
On top of this, Kim was very responsive, especially in times of crisis when I needed to reach my supervisor for impromptu consultation. Even during these moments, Kim maintained her levelheaded demeanor, empowered me to make clinically and ethically informed decisions, and coached me through pros and cons, thus continuing to strengthen my skills as a clinician.
For me, Kim struck the perfect balance of being personable and relatable and equally as thorough and highly informed.
When opportunity arose for me to transition to another setting, which included the possibility of having to connect with another supervisor at my next place of practice, Kim was instrumental in helping me to understand how to negotiate supervision into my new benefits package and what I needed out of my next supervisor and placement that would continue to develop me into a better clinician. If the opportunity arises, I would choose Kim to be my supervisor again." -Jayme Hardy, LMSW
