Here is what people say about me as a supervisor

Kenya Massey

John is an excellent well versed supervisor. He allows students to be independent and is very supportive throughout the learning process. He is extremely knowledgeable, I learned a great deal under his supervision.

Maria Schnautz

Associate Clinical Social Worker, 2003-2005

John Raasch supervised me throughout my 3200 hours of required clinical supervision. He is insightful, supportive, knowledgeable and reliable. His supervision was very helpful in preparing me for licensure, addressing differential diagnosis, crisis intervention as well as ethical and legal issues. Shortly after completion of my hours I took the LCSW exams and I passed!
