Josephine Audre Benson, also known as Emily Clark, is a limited licensed social worker. She’s required to work under the supervision of a fully licensed social worker and limit her practice to specific board-approved entities.
According to the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs said Benson was advertising services as a private practice provider without supervision.
LARA got complaints that she was advertising herself on social media as a private practice social worker.
LARA said she also claimed to have a master’s degree in neuroscience from Harvard, but she never attended the university.
On Oct. 21 LARA approved the suspension of Benson’s license.
She applied for a limited social work license in Michigan under her given name, Emily Clark. She was approved for the license in March 2020. A month later legally changed her name to Josephine Benson.
