Clinton's best advice for people who are starting out in this field is to "be understanding of your client, don't judge them, focus on the positive, and to try your best to help those in need." Clinton loves what he does because he gets to be out in the field meeting new people all the time instead of being stuck in an office all day.
Clinton's Unit Supervisor summed it up best when describing him:

Clinton is compassionate and presents as non judgmental with all of his clients which puts them at ease. Clinton is one of the kindest people I know with a gentle soul. Clinton always is working hard with his clients and wants to ensure they are succeeding in services and in life. Clinton is observed to want to continue to learn and grown in his role and works hard on every case he is assigned. We appreciate and are happy to have Clinton on our team! “
