Penelope Medina

Counseling Intern

(Penelope is under the clinical supervision of Timothy Crumley, LMHC, private practice)

Hello, my name is Penelope Medina I am from Brooklyn, NY and I am currently attending the University at Albany's Mental Health Counseling program. I attended the University at Albany for undergrad and received my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. For the past 2 years I have worked for a nonprofit organization called Equinox inc. where I worked with adults who have both mental illness and developmental disabilities.

I work with clients navigating a range of issues, including general life stressors and transitions (such as economic stress, coming of age), substance use, and issues related to mood and anxiety. I believe many of the problems people face are external, and I can assist you in establishing the best way to understand, navigate and cope with such challenges.

In my free time I like to travel, try new recipes, bake, and take long walks with my dog named Harley.
