Under Clinical Supervision

Paul Russomanno, Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate, 37AC005333900 is practicing under the supervision of Ashley Appleton (New Jersey, LPC, 37pc00685500) 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 was your path to becoming a therapist? What inspired you to choose this profession?

For as long as I can remember, I always wanted to help people, but I wasn’t clear on how I could turn that into a career. That changed after I spent one month working one-on-one with students in China. While I learned about myself and the world, I had the chance to make a real difference in people’s lives. I saw the psychological, emotional, and spiritual impact I could have working with others, so I pursued therapy to be an agent of change in the world.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

Disputes. Disconnection. Disagreement. Whatever you want to call it, conflict is a reality of every relationship. It’s impossible for people to agree on everything, so we all eventually find ourselves in situations where our needs, values, and perspectives differ from the people in our lives. Some of us shy away from difficult conversations, while others are quick to become aggressive or escalate the situation. If it isn’t handled in a healthy way, conflict can rupture bonds. My practice focuses on empowering people to work through conflict constructively using a practical approach emphasizing healthy interpersonal connection. Instead of distancing ourselves, we can create opportunities to grow and establish more trusting, satisfying relationships.

What are your biggest strengths as a therapist?

My down-to-earth approach helps my clients express their thoughts and feelings with ease. I have a calm demeanor that makes clients feel comfortable during our sessions, allowing us to connect on a deeper level during the therapeutic process. I provide a safe environment where clients can be authentic and vulnerable. My goal is to make clients feel like they’re talking to a friend as we’re working together. Even though I take a laid-back approach, I’m not afraid to push back if I hear them say something counterproductive. By confronting these thoughts and behaviors, my clients establish healthier behaviors.
