Hi! I’m Kate Usaj, LISW-S


I provide training supervision and help Ohio LSWs learn the art and science of social work practice and how to intentionally build a career THEY design.

After 30 years in social work practice in schools, agencies, and an international hospital system, I was sent home to work virtually in 2020 during the pandemic.

I had little support, but had developed daily mindfulness practices that allowed me adapt and thrive. I began to get calls from new social  workers for therapy. I realized they did not need therapy, they needed good supervision.

I had supervised graduate interns for my entire career, but was there a need for LSW supervision? Why was that not happening in the workplace? I decided I would make the shift from employee to CEO, built my own virtual business while working full time from home and retired from the hospital just short of the year they sent me home.

Since Fall of 2020, I have supervised 80 social workers for over 1500
hours of group supervision. And the stories I have heard are shocking. The lack of support and burnout for social workers in the workplace is astounding.

There are two types of social workers out there - ones whose career happens to them, and others who intentionally create a Career by Design. That starts with good supervision.

The difference between a career you love and a career you hate is creating it from the right foundations. Supervision with an
experienced, supportive supervisor/mentor will help YOU craft the career of your dreams, so you will never be broke, burned out and
saddled with school loans like so many people in our profession.
