Dr. Krystle L. Berkoski is a clinical psychologist from Northeastern Pennsylvania. Dr. Berkoski received her Bachelor of Science degree in psychology from the University of Scranton and her master’s and doctoral degrees, both in clinical psychology, from Marywood University. Dr. Berkoski completed her APA-accredited internship at the University of Buffalo’s Counseling Services, where she conducted individual and group therapy, as well as outreach programming, psychological assessment, and supervision. Her training in clinical psychology is as a generalist practitioner and, as such, she has experiences in various settings and with diverse populations. She has conducted psychotherapy with children, teens, and adults, in settings including college counseling centers, community clinics, inpatient and outpatient hospitals, and the PA state prison system.
Dr. Berkoski employs an interpersonal approach to psychotherapy, which emphasizes the relationship she develops with the client, as well as the relationships the client is engaged in outside of the therapeutic context. Treatment is focused on identifying, expressing, and processing emotions. Her approach is integrated and holistic in nature and considers cognition, behavior, communication, family of origin, cultural factors, and the physical body. She has focused her continuing education efforts on utilizing mindfulness and effectively treating unresolved trauma. Dr. Berkoski conducts psychotherapy with adolescents and adults, 16 years of age and older.
While her training in supervision and consultation started as a master’s level student, Dr. Berkoski has enhanced these skills by conducting ongoing individual and group supervision with graduate students, social workers, counselors, and other psychologists, from beginner-level trainees to fully licensed professionals in academia and here at the practice. Her approach to supervision is integrative and linked closely to her psychotherapy style. She prioritizes the establishment of secure professional relationships so that any difficulty with clients and countertransference can be explored openly and guided effectively. A developmental framework informs this approach, ensuring supervisees get the appropriate level of support and direction.
