The Supervision Registry is a free benefit of membership for those who are looking for a supervisor to complete the necessary hours for independent licensure. The supervisors who have joined the registry are listed by county where the supervision will occur. All supervisors listed on this registry have completed NASW-Michigan’s Certification in Core Supervision, are fully licensed in the state of Michigan, and have at least three years of experience in the field.


Please note that all information provided below is provided by the supervisor; which have signed an application testifying to its accuracy. If you notice a discrepancy in information, or have further requests for information, please contact the supervisor directly as NASW-Michigan only posts the information we receive. NASW-Michigan is not responsible for placement, or for any licensing issues involved with supervision.
