Under Clinical Supervision
Mackenzie Stocum, Provisional Licensed Professional Counselor, 1654693 is practicing under the supervision of Brian Miller (Pennsylvania, LMFT, MF000941) at Self-Employed.
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.
If there was one thing you wish people knew about the therapy experience who might be hesitant to try it, what would that be?
A lot of people think that they need to have their therapy goals figured out before they meet with a new therapist, and that's simply not true! It may be helpful to have an idea of what you are looking to accomplish in therapy, but collaboration is a crucial part of the therapeutic process, which means we can discuss, decide, and reflect on your therapy goals together.
If you could pick one movie or book that influenced your approach to therapy, what would it be and why?
I am inspired by the work of Irvin D. Yalom. In graduate school, we were first assigned his book, The Gift of Therapy, and his philosophy toward psychotherapy stood out to me as being very special for its emphasis on the therapeutic relationship and his ability to meaningfully reflect on his professional experiences. Since then, I have read several of his other books, and Existential Psychotherapy has greatly influenced my therapeutic approach. It is my goal to read all of his books, both fiction and non-fiction.

I am a pre-licensed professional counselor located in Philadelphia, serving clients throughout Pennsylvania. Prior to beginning my own private practice, I worked with other clinicians in a small, group private practice. I take a holistic and trauma-informed approach to therapy. I recognize that there are generational, environmental, social, and cultural factors that impact our day-to-day lives and decisions. It is important to consider these factors throughout the therapeutic process. When we begin to understand ourselves and our ways of thinking and acting as a part of a larger whole, we can begin to improve the quality of our lives and our relationships. I help clients create real change through cultivating insight around their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in the context of their life, relationships, and the world around them. I also help clients develop healthier, more effective coping skills. Together, we'll work to deepen your self awareness and build on what is good, strong, and true about yourself.
