“A great deal of social work supervision has to do with understanding systems. Marcie’s gift as a supervisor is that she has a deep understanding of systems. Whether it’s the intrapsychic system of the client, the social system in which they live, or the organizational system in which the work is taking place: Marcie helps you better understand how the moving pieces connect. She is compassionate, experienced, wise and kind. I was very lucky to be supervised by her and would recommend her to journeyman clinicians and those who want to understand more about organizational life.”
