AWFUL to NO support from supervisor and administration
Counselor (Former Employee), Blue IslandFebruary 26, 2015
Pros: good programs for clients
Cons: no support from administration
The clinical therapist positions are awful in this agency. The supervisor is not knowledgable so you have to look to other clinicians for support. She micromanages And is agressive. There is a HIGH turnover. I noticed that people don't last more then a year. I left as soon as I noticed these red flags. Communicated my concerns to administration they said they would look into it. Nothing was done. I later learned that others have communicated issues for years and nothing happened. This place is an unhealthy environment.
