Clinical Program Supervisor - Penngrove

Angie Gunn is a licensed clinical social worker, clinical supervisor, and certified sex and gender therapist. Angie facilitated her first trauma-informed care training 12 years ago in a chaotic traumatized child welfare system in Wisconsin. The program focused on how to create better outcomes for children in care, while caring for overworked professionals. Over the last 20 years in our field, she has spent her career trying to figure out how to do the work well, while learning to be a grounded, connected, healthy person in the work. Angie will be the first to say, “While I didn’t always succeed, I got a lot better at reading my own process of activation, deeply rooted in my own childhood trauma, and understanding the cues and needs of both clients and systems. System change feels uncomfortable because it means naming processes that became about system sustainability versus the client; it requires rethinking what it means to be doing a “good job,” and what it means to be someone with clear boundaries and regulated healing relationships with one another and with our clients.” This background has allowed Angie to adapt quickly in times of chaos. Prior to Muir Wood, Angie worked in various settings as a care coordinator in residential care, case manager, supervisor, trainer, therapist, clinical supervisor, and practice and program manager. In every role her driving principles have remained consistent: creating an anti-oppression framework for well-being and integration of all the parts of the person within trauma-informed and regulated systems. At Muir Wood, Angie leads our trauma-focused Penngrove program in creating new ways of integrating trauma-informed work into residential care and increasing well-being outcomes for a new generation of youth.
