Under Clinical Supervision

Mariel Andersen, Resident, 123 is practicing under the supervision of Amy Nash (Virginia, LCSW, 904004557) at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Charlottesville.

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 does a first session with you look like?

The first session, as with all Thriveworks therapists, will involve talking through your needs and goals for therapy — whether those involve managing depression, anxiety, relationship problems, or another mental health challenge. This will enable you to receive the very best care, as a personalized treatment plan will then be developed for subsequent sessions. Thriveworks helps people live happier, more fulfilling lives. Clients are guided and supported as they work through their unique mental health challenges – and, along the way, shown the life-changing power of therapy.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I offer a variety of counseling approaches including CBT / Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems.

What should we know about your experiences and background?

Our supervisee in social work, Mariel Andersen, is working towards LCSW licensure after earning her Master s from Virginia Commonwealth University. Mariel earned her first Master s in clinical psychology from the University of Maryland, where her capstone project examined social support during young adulthood transitions. At the University of Virginia, Mariel majored in Cognitive Science while researching perception, virtual reality, and relationships. Mariel has provided services in diverse contexts, where she has focused on alleviating distress associated with depression, anxiety, ADHD, trauma, and existential concerns. Mariel draws from her strong research background to balance empirical knowledge of clinicalphenomena with a non-categorical approach. This allows every client to be seen as an individual,not as a diagnosis. Mariel sees the therapeutic process as reciprocal, with the client sperspectives determining which interventions enter into the clinical partnership. Mariel shapes the therapy session into a judgment-free space where her clients are free to engage with their most authentic thoughts and feelings. She draws from varied theoretical influences, from Carl Rogers to Mr. Rogers. Her therapeutic style is warm, natural, and eclectic, creating a relaxed atmosphere for self-expression and growth.
