LCSW supervision requirements in the State of Connecticut:

The State of Connecticut requires all LCSW-applicants to complete the following requirements before they will be allowed to take the LCSW licensure examination:

  • Hold a master’s or doctorate degree from a Social Work program accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE)
  • Successfully complete three thousand (3000) hours of post-master’s social work experience once they have been awarded their LMSW (some exceptions/exclusions may apply; click here to be taken to the State’s licensing page for more information)
  • Complete not less than one hundred (100) hours of one-on-one supervision with an LCSW licensed in Connecticut.  These hours must take place while the client is doing post-master’s social work
    • These are the hours that you could hire Luke Robbins, LCSW, to spend with you, providing Clinical Supervision towards your LCSW license


LCSW Individual Supervision Hours:

Luke Robbins, LCSW, has been offering LCSW supervision dating back to 2018. This service is for providers who have their LMSW license in the State of Connecticut and who are working towards earning their LCSW license.  According to Luke, “I believe the role of an LCSW supervisor is to offer support and guidance to their supervisee so that the supervisee is able to provide appropriate, professional, and ethical service to their own clients.  I also believe that I have a duty to offer all the available and appropriate resources and support — within the scope of our profession and the limits of our professional relationship — to my supervisees so that they can tailor their work to serve their clients in the way that feels right and fulfilling to the supervisee.  Most of all, though, what I love about supervising LMSWs towards their LCSW is the opportunity to offer guidance on how to do this work without burning out; that is to say, how to remember that we as Social Workers are also human, that our energy is a finite resource, and that our feelings and safety matter, too.  Towards that end, I start every LCSW supervision relationship by teaching my supervisees the ‘North Star’ exercise, and helping them to ground their work in the concept of ‘the offer,’ which is something that has saved my life and made it possible for me to do the work I do and remain healthy.”


$90/hour, with some potential for sliding scale fees for individuals working for certain non-profit organizations
