Biography

Hi, my name is Casey Scafella, M.S., LPC, NCC, I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and I have been with RBMH since 2018.  In my training, I had many opportunities to treat individuals with developmental, cognitive, and mental health disabilities, in addition to working with trauma. In my career, I received training for trauma-informed care, with an emphasis on a strengths-based approach to treatment.  I trained in the neurologically-based treatment and use art-based techniques to facilitate communication of emotional experiences.  I studied regulation and crisis responses to trauma, in addition to improving self-care and implementing self-care plans.

Who is Casey?

One of my favorite hobbies is listening to and creating music along with spending time with loved ones and connecting with nature.  I love my dog and I enjoy running.  I enjoy painting and having opportunities to ground and center myself near any body of water.

About Therapy

I work from a person-centered, strengths-based approach.  Recovery, to me, develops through support and improved self-worth and resilience.  I especially enjoy working with trauma-impacted individuals of all ages and I love to see growth within different life stages. Currently, I am completing a certification in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.  My main interests are substance recovery, mind-body connections, and the neurological impacts of mental health disorders and experiences of trauma.  I believe that the key to recovery is building empowerment and resilience.   Recovery is a life-long process and responding to traumatic experiences can be achieved successfully through a person’s belief in their own ability to recover.
