Individual and Group Supervision
Making the decision of who to select as a supervisor has a significant impact on a supervisee’s
professional growth, access to networking relationships within the field, and preparing to reach goals for
a career in the mental health field.
Whether you are seeking individual supervision, group supervision, or a combination of both of these, Dr.

and theoretical background of both Dr. Johnson and prospective supervisees in order to ensure a mutually
beneficial supervision relationship.
