Mackenzie Ambrozich- Intern

Supervised by Rusty Simon LPCC-S and Heidi Salierno MSW LISW-S

Mackenzie’s Heart for Counseling:

I desire to meet clients where they are at with compassion and understanding. I have a burden to help clients extend grace to themselves while working through hard life circumstances, complex emotions, or just everyday life. I want to work closely with clients to reach goals together and find healing.


Mackenzie’s Style:

In sessions, Mackenzie utilizes a strengths-based approach paired with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help clients approach their concerns from a lens of self-worth and inherent value. I want to be a companion for clients walking through various issues and help them understand more about themselves, their relationships, and the world around them by the end of the session.
I work with all ages, and specifically enjoy talking to teenagers and young-adults. I have experience of being part of an adoptive family and have a specific burden to work with adopted children and the siblings and parents of those children. I enjoy having conversations about faith and if a client should request this, it can be included in each session to the client’s level of comfort.



I received my undergraduate degree in Psychology from The Ohio State University in the Spring of 2023. I am currently in the Master’s of Social Work (MSW) program at The Ohio State University and will graduate in the Spring of 2025.
