All Kinds of News for February 10, 2021
Educational and therapeutic consulting firm HarrisKramer & Liston (HK&L) is thrilled to announce the addition of Jill Nowak, LCSW to their practice. HK&L matches students from preschool to college and beyond with the schools and programs that fit their unique needs, partnering with families on the journey from challenge to success. Areas of expertise range from traditional and specialized day and boarding schools to a broad range of therapeutic options including those that specialize in the treatment of mental health and substance abuse.
“I am ecstatic to welcome Jill to the HK&L team! Jill brings her many years of clinical expertise to our existing team of consultants who are inspiring, energetic, and deeply committed to the health and success of our young people and their families,” said Jodi Liston, President of HK&L.
Jill E. Nowak is a licensed clinical social worker with more than 12 years of experience working in treatment settings across varying levels of care and disciplines. Jill began her social work career in New York City, working with immigrant youth, survivors of childhood sexual abuse, and others coping with traumatic circumstances. She developed a zeal for intake at the NYU Child Study Center, which later informed her work near Boston as Director of Admissions & Referral Liaison for the McLean Hospital 3East Intensive Residential DBT Program.
Jill has spent nearly a decade on multi-disciplinary clinical teams treating adolescents struggling with emotion dysregulation, depression, anxiety, and self-endangering behavior. She has seen the many benefits of strong delivery of evidence-based practices and the right therapeutic relationships.
Jill earned her Bachelor of Arts in English Literature from Gettsyburg College and Master of Social Work from New York University. In addition, she is a practitioner of Katonah Yoga and a 700-hour certified instructor with more than 3 years of public teaching experience. She feels inspired by all tools, skills, and techniques that spark personal contentment and transformation.
The HK&L collaborative approach empowers every team member to contribute her extensive experience to all HK&L clients. Customized solutions ensure that each family feels heard, seen, and supported and that every child or young adult is matched with the optimal school or program at which he or she can thrive.
