About Liana Scalise

Hi, I’m Liana, a licensed professional counselor (LPC) with a Master of Science in Counseling from Carlow University.  I earned my undergraduate degree in Social Work from Edinboro University

My Family Therapy Specialty

I’m certified in Eco Systemic Structural Family Therapy, a modality that focuses on helping children and families who experience behavioral and relationship challenges find healthier ways to interact and communicate with one another. With over two decades of experience working within various community mental health settings, I help children, adolescents, teens, young adults, and adults navigate emotional, behavioral, social, familial, and mental health needs.

After taking the first step of scheduling counseling with me, I will create goal-oriented therapy for your experience with anxiety, depression, grief and loss, intrapersonal conflict, relationship and communication issues, childhood trauma, stressful events, life transitions, parenting needs, or whatever your challenge is.

What to Expect in Therapy

Relationships are paramount, and trust is essential. To that end, I foster a therapy space that is shared, collaborative, supportive, and safe. I’ll work to partner with you in therapy, whether you’re contemplating making a change, interested in exploring the change process, pursuing new methods to maintain change, or refining skills already established. Through this partnership, I’ll support your autonomy, empower your strengths, and listen carefully to understand your perspective.  With your permission, I’ll provide education, explore new methods, and teach you new strategies to manage your needs better.

Individualized Therapy for You

I rely on evidence-based practices such as Motivational Interviewing and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) while using a strength-based Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) approach and incorporating the Stages of Change modality. It’s important to share that I use these practices with flexibility and balance since therapy is individualized and tailored to your uniqueness and circumstances.
