Under Clinical Supervision

Laya Gerstman, Licensed Master Social Worker, 4406693800 is practicing under the supervision of Brittany Williams (New Jersey, LCSW, 44SC06025800) at Resilience Lab.

Please, note: A clinician listed as being “clinically supervised” is completing clinical hours toward their licensure. They have one or more fully licensed clinical supervisors that often have special training to become supervisors. They consult with their supervisor(s) on all of their cases, which means that, when working with them, you are getting the time and expertise of multiple therapists in your treatment.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I graduated from New York's Wurzweiler School of Social Work, which has given me a solid grounding in social work theory and practice. Through this program, I worked in two sites. One was an elementary school and one was a community agency, both of which have informed my practices around acceptance and positive psychology. I will accept you for who you are so you can learn to accept yourself. I will help you discover your strengths so you can build on them. I will help you address your challenges so you can grow from them. Using evidence-based practices to make our work effective, I will also bring humor and fun activities in as appropriate to create a positive experience.
