Under Clinical Supervision

Layla Alter, Licensed Clinical Social Worker Associate, 79136 is practicing under the supervision of Amy Gottheimer (New York, LCSW, 79136) 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 have experience as a Crisis Counselor supporting survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence. I was previously a High School counselor, where I gained extensive experience working with young adults and adolescents suffering from anxiety, sexual trauma and transitional periods. Currently as a Clinical Fellow at Resilience lab, I seek to use my previous experience to inform the way I continue to help young adults, adolescents and adults navigate their internal worlds.
