Ilene S Gallner Toller

Position: LCSW-C Behavioral Health Clinician

Ilene believes her clients have the answers they need to heal themselves; they just need someone to help guide them to their truth and their own inner wisdom. She views therapy as a collaborative process, where the client is the pilot and the therapist is the co-pilot. She is there to support clients on their journey utilizing skills she has acquired through her work with clients as well as through continuing education and peer supervision. Ilene has an eclectic approach, utilizing whatever best meets her client’s needs. She has certificates in Trauma Therapy with training in utilizing expressive therapies, such as movement, and art. She utilizes the Internal Family Systems model developed by Richard Schwartz. She incorporates Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Psychodynamic therapy, noting that often the client’s past impacts on their present, while they may need some new skills to help manage old behaviors learned in their past. Ilene earned her BS in Individual and Family Studies at Pennsylvania State University and her MSW from University of Maryland School of Social Work and Community Planning. She has been a therapist with Family and Children’s Services for almost 25 years, specializing in working with adults with trauma history, relationship issues, depression, anxiety and bi-polar disorders.
