Camp Tel Yehudah
Camp Social Worker
Russell Birner, M.S., N.C.C., is looking forward to his third summer as the mental health specialist at Camp Tel Yehudah, where he is an alumnus. He loves working with adolescents and young adults because of the monumental change a positive interaction can trigger. He believes in camp as a safe and happy place, where teens can be themselves and explore who they really are. His approach to camp counseling is to be non-judgmental, compassionate, and always easily accessible. In counseling teens and young adults, regardless of setting, he explores mindfulness-based approaches to living and utilizes Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, and Existential Therapy.
