Therapy Techniques, Interventions, and Modalities
Emily Pavlick, LCSW-C
Nicole Jackson, LCSW-C
I believe that effective therapy is built on trust, comfortability, and unconditional empathy. My treatment approach is rooted in the importance of the individual. I want to understand my clients’ interests, personalities, and passions so that I can incorporate these into their treatment in creative ways. I believe therapy is not a one size fits all, and that the primary focus of treatment needs to be strengthening the therapeutic relationship. For my younger clients, I include play and art to build connections and encourage honest conversations; I’ve found that through a client talking about, or doing what they love, they are more open to share the most vulnerable parts of themselves.
I am passionate about helping young people cultivate their inner strength and resilience. I have experience working with clients, as young as three- years of age, navigate challenges, such as trauma, anxiety, hyperactivity, behavioral difficulties, loss of a loved one, and family changes. I approach my therapy sessions with full acceptance, and want my clients to leave our time together feeling validated, uplifted, and hopeful.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW-C) and graduated with my MSW in Clinical Behavioral Health from the University of Maryland Baltimore. I have received extensive training from The National Adoption Mental Health Training Initiative (NTI) that has given me the tools to help foster and adoptive parents navigate the challenges that can arise with transitions, as well as meet the mental health needs of children in foster, adoptive, or guardianship families. I started my mental health career as a Behavior Technician—working with children on the Autism Spectrum and other developmental disabilities. I have experience working in variety of settings, including preschools, private/public schools, in the home, and on tele-health. I believe that working with a young person directly in their environment, in a compassionate, hands on way leads to transformative change.
Avrah Mendelsohn, LCSW-C
I have been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW-C) since 2003 and through BeWell Therapy, I am pleased to provide supervision services to Licensed Master Social Workers (LMSWs), mentoring and supporting them as they work to obtain the licensure required to provide clinical services to clients independent of supervision, the Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW-C) status.
I have supervised social workers for more than 10 years and have ushered almost one hundred individuals through the licensing board application process, ensuring that each application is in full compliance with all rules and regulations.
Supervision is an investment you make in your future. I have a reputation for helping social workers under my supervision maximize their experience with rich clinical material in the most efficient time frame possible. I assist them in handling any situation that arises, navigating even the most complex, intense, crisis situations with calm and expert compassion. Many social workers I have supervised tell me that these skills have served them well as independent providers by reducing burnout, compassion fatigue, and vicarious trauma, all dangers well-known in the profession.
Additionally, I strive to maintain an easy-going, kind, and supportive style that I believe makes difficult davs a little easier. I look forward to providing the high-quality supervision you are looking for if you are an LMSW seeking licensure as an LCSW-C in the state of Maryland.
If you are already licensed to practice independently, I also provide monthly LC groups which bring a diverse mix of professionals together in a mutually supportive and welcoming environment.
