About Liana Scalise

Hi, I’m Liana, a licensed professional counselor in the State of Pennsylvania with a Master of Science in Counseling from Carlow University and an undergraduate degree in Social Work from Edinboro University. 

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. 

I have over two decades of experience working within various community mental health settings helping children, adolescents, adults, and families navigate emotional, behavioral, social, and mental health needs. I create a goal-oriented treatment for those experiencing, but not limited to, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, intrapersonal conflict, relationship and communication issues, childhood trauma, stressful events, life transitions, and parenting needs.

What to Expect in Therapy

Relationships are paramount, and trust is essential. To that end, I foster a therapeutic space that is shared, collaborative, supportive, and safe. I work to partner with those seeking therapy, whether 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 support one’s autonomy, empower individual strengths, listen carefully to understand one’s perspective, and with permission, provide education, explore new methods, and teach new strategies to manage identified needs better.

Individualized Therapy for You

I rely on evidence-based practices such as Motivational Interviewing and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy while using a strength-based Solution Focused approach and incorporating the Stages of Change. Although, it’s important to share that I use these practices with flexibility and balance since therapy is individualized and tailored to each unique person and their circumstances.
