Hello, my name is Theresa Skotleski and I am a Licensed Social Worker. I earned my master's degree in Social Work from Marywood University. I believe that an individual willing to seek out help to improve upon their life with the right guidance, tools, and support can have a positive outcome that only improves their quality of life.
I am encouraging, warm, relatable, and ready to work towards the goals that a client has for themselves. Throughout my 25 years of working to help individuals face personal struggles in their lives and the lives of those around them, I have found that when ready and with the right guidance and reasonable/realistic goals set, success is achievable.
My motto has always been "if you're ready, I am ready to help" and throughout our time together you will be provided the right tools to tackle the challenges you are facing. If you are looking for a therapist that will work with you to face your challenges, then please call or send me an email to schedule an appointment. I look forward to working with you.
