The Calm Space currently has a masters level intern working at the practice. Our masters level intern can be seen on a donation basis, so they are an affordable option for those with financial or insurance constraints. Check out this article to learn other reasons why seeing a clinical intern may be beneficial:
I have a belief that life is not meant to be linear. Change can be both positive and necessary. It can be a catalyst for growth. On that note, here is a bit about me:
I have my Masters Degree in Education from Lehigh University, and I've worked in both the education and healthcare fields for years. As time went on, and life threw a few curveballs, I could no longer ignore that voice inside urging me toward a career change. I am now in my final year of the graduate Clinical Mental Health Counseling program at Kutztown University. I am grateful to be on this path. This is a path which, to me, holds extraordinary purpose.
I am deeply interested in trauma therapy. In my work so far I have helped individuals with PTSD, C-PTSD and adjustment disorder. Additionally, I have experience treating individuals struggling with anxiety in many forms, depression, and grief. Finally, as a cancer survivor myself, I am drawn toward helping individuals and families dealing with the mental health impacts that coincide with serious or chronic illnesses.
In my counseling approach, I take an existential orientation. I see you as a unique individual, not a diagnosis. In a practical sense, I will also use solution- focused, cognitive behavioral, and IFS (Internal Family Systems) parts work techniques in our sessions. For couples, I will use EFT (Emotionally-Focused Therapy).
My style is to actively engage with the client to work toward real and lasting growth. We will focus on cultivating insight, self awareness, coping skills and resiliency. I will tailor the intervention to you, so that you feel both supported and empowered to move toward a better way of life.
