Cameryn attended the University at Buffalo for her undergraduate studies and completed her BA in Psychology with a minor in Counseling. While at Buffalo, she was a veteran research assistant in a social psychophysiology lab, studying resilience in young adults. Cameryn also attended UB for her Master’s in Mental Health Counseling. Cameryn’s internship experience was through Family Counseling Service of the Finger Lakes, where she provided trauma-informed therapy to children and teens at Pal-Mac’s primary, middle, and high schools. Cameryn is joining our group as a limited permit MHC, practicing under the supervision of the practice manager, Karyn Dietz, LMHC.
Prior to entering into the counseling field, Cameryn worked in childcare as a lead teacher, where she was familiar with working with children with autism and other developmental differences. She has worked with children, teens, and their families through her work in the Pal-Mac school system. Cameryn has experience providing therapy for issues including trauma, parent or client substance abuse, bullying, depression, and anxiety. She will be available to work with clients ages six and up, with a focus on children, teens, and young adults.
Cameryn specializes in trauma-informed therapy. She has completed certifications in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) and LGBTQ supportive therapy. She is actively engaged in trainings in Trust Based Relational Intervention (TBRI). Cameryn’s approach to therapy focuses on using a person-centered focus and a genuine, invested interest in meeting each client’s unique therapy needs. She enjoys providing a comfortable relationship for clients to explore their stories and perspectives, with no pressure on the individual’s pacing in sessions. She strives to engage in a collaborative therapy process, supporting the client’s identified goals and aiming to provide as much autonomy as possible to younger individuals in their sessions. With younger clients, Cameryn often uses play or art-based therapies to help clients process their feelings in a safe and inviting manner.
Cameryn is currently accepting new clients for in person or telehealth sessions. She will begin seeing clients at the start of July.
