How I Became A Clinical Social Worker

Hey everybody, this is Part 2 of the video I did, My 20 Careers in Social Work

My journey to becoming a Clinical Social Worker has not been an easy one. I worked in a lot of jobs that didn’t provide me with my clinical hours I needed before I began working toward licensure. Once I obtained my hours, I knew entrepreneurship was the route for me.

Now a Clinical Social Worker can either be an LCSW or an LISW, depending on the state, but it is the same credential. If any of you are ready to begin into private practice I have a Private Practice Templates Bundle that includes all the forms I used to get started. These are editable word documents, that you can cut, copy and paste to fit your practice needs.

Please share with a Social Worker who you know may be interested in staring a private practice…and thanks for watching!

I created The Social Work Success Path blog and podcast, during the pandemic of 2021 to provide online education and mentorship for Social Workers. I felt very isolated and disconnected being only in the second year of running my private practice. I strongly considered going back to work when everything shut down. The resources and tools that I share helped me to maintain my practice through the pandemic and plan a successful transition as a Social Work content creator, doing work that I love and connecting with Social Workers all around the world. I did this in the span of 1 year, but using the resources, trainings and tools that I have pulled together, and all my all lessons learned, you can make your career transition much sooner than I did!
