What Past & Current Participants Have to Say...

“The program has been a huge asset for me. I have both the support of receiving individual and group supervision. I also have the opportunity and space to expand my knowledge with free bi-weekly trainings.” –Abigail Deevers, LLMSW

“Even with six years of experience at Pine Rest prior to becoming a limited licensed clinician, imposter syndrome has been a very real thing for me. Being a part of the limited license program has provided so much support- between receiving extra training, multiple experienced clinicians walking alongside of you, and a dedicated place to interact with your peers to normalize your experience as a new clinician.” – Alyssa Wiener, LLMSW

“This program is highly relevant to the real-world practice we are doing concurrently, and I love being able to take a deeper dive into areas that we only touched on in my MSW program.  I also enjoy the rich discussions we have in the group supervision format with other LLMSWs in various settings throughout Pine Rest.  It’s really well-structured and I feel that it has helped me grow as a clinician.” – Aprille Arena, LLMSW

“The limited license training program provides a strong conceptual and practical framework that enriches your practice. Also, you receive top notch supervision which promotes professional growth.” – Brad Robinson, LMSW

“The Pine Rest limited license training program helped me increase in confidence and bridged the knowledge gap between my internship and full-time outpatient practice.  I appreciated the affirmation and direction I received as I grew into my clinical career.” –Karleena Tillottson, LMSW, CAADC
