Under Clinical Supervision

Pamela Waranowicz, Licensed Professional Counselor Associate, 5570 is practicing under the supervision of Renee Cross (Connecticut, LPC, 3042) 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?

The definition of therapy is “treatment intended to relieve or heal a disorder.” Why that meaning is so important is because it is utilized in both mental health and physical health. The purpose to put those together evidence the importance of the connection of mind and body. It is noted that medical issues and mental health issues are two different things, but that is not true; they are one. Therapy offers an opportunity for a person to heal any part of the mind and/or body. Developing a relationship with a therapist will help any one of us take an exploration journey in how to connect the mind, body and spirit and heal.

What was your path to becoming a therapist? What inspired you to choose this profession?

I went through a lot of things throughout my life and, with my own experiences with therapy, psychiatrists, etc., I realized that the mental health system had not been providing the treatment that those of us with mental health issues needed. I wanted to be an advocate and help empower people to understand that anyone can overcome and heal from whatever has been or is currently blocking who they really are and what they want to be. I also wanted to eradicate the historic stigmas and breakdown the historic mental health system that have scared people away from receiving proper treatment.

What’s the most profound, insightful, or interesting thing you’ve learned as a mental health professional?

I am very transparent and open. The purpose is so that clients don’t look at or think that therapists as “perfect people.” Many therapists have become one due to their own mental health issues at some point. Therapists are like all others, and we have our ups and downs. I think knowing that is much more comforting to those who come to have help.
