Alana Russotti, LCSW, IMH-E®, Infant Mental Health Specialist, (Co-Facilitator) has been working with children and families impacted by trauma in our community for over 10 years. Alana holds a Bachelor’s degree from St. John Fisher College in Psychology and Women & Gender Studies, and a Master’s Degree from Fordham University in Social Work with a Clinical Concentration. Fueled by a core belief that the most meaningful way to support children is through their relationships with their caregivers, she began her career at SPCC in the Supervised Visitation Program. In 2014, after identifying a need for more intensive treatment options for children in foster care and high-conflict custody situations, Alana co-created Rochester’s first Therapeutic Visitation Program; she currently works as the Clinical Supervisor of this program. In addition to work through her psychotherapy private practice, Kaleidoscope Wellness, Alana holds particular expertise in providing and consulting in areas of Reflective Supervision, parent-child Emotional Availability®, child welfare, child-centered high-conflict custody, Child-Centered Play Therapy, the impact of trauma on children, and Infant Mental Health. Relationships are at the core of who Alana is and she deeply values the impact of healthy relationships between multidisciplinary systems, in the supervisory relationship, and with clients alike; Alana is grateful for the personal and professional relationships that give her the fuel and grounding to do this work.
