- Tina Arendash, M.S.W., LCSW
- Director of the Counseling Center; Coordinator of Peer Education and Outreach
Hello and welcome! I've been a member of the King's community since February 2013. I received my Master of Social Work from Marywood University and my Bachelor of Arts in Social Work from Elizabethtown College. Before coming to King's, I spent over 10 years working with children and adolescents in a school-based mental health setting and with children and families involved in the child welfare system.
Aside from my role at King's, I also currently work in a private practice seeing adolescents and adults. My approach is strength-based, and in the work I do with students, I most often use a combination of solution-focused and cognitive behavioral therapy. I am a member of the National Association of Social Workers, the American College Counseling Association, and the Association of University and College Counseling Center Directors.
I am a member of the King's CARE Team. Some of my professional areas of interest include managing stress, anxiety, and depression, as well as working through perfectionism, developing healthy relationships, building self-esteem, improving body image, coping with grief and loss, and using mindfulness meditation.
I am passionate about upholding the social work value of respecting the inherent dignity and worth of the person. I am a Safe Space Ally and participate in regular continuing education and training to ensure I am practicing with cultural humility and inclusivity. I am also a first-generation college student and strive to encourage and empower those students who share this experience.
Outside of my professional life, I spend time with my husband (a King's alum!), two daughters and our border collie mix, Lily. I love watching football and spending time reading and cooking!
- Julia Lettieri, M.S., NCC
- College Counselor
Hello! My name is Julie and I have been a counselor at King's since August of 2021. I received my Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of Scranton and my Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Marywood University.
Before coming to King's, I worked as a drug and alcohol counselor in Orlando, FL, working with adults struggling with substance abuse disorder. I also worked as a school counselor in Orlando where I worked with students who struggled with learning and behavioral disorders, as well as students who were integrating back into the school system from the juvenile detention system. While I was still in graduate school, I worked as an intern in the counseling center at Misericordia University, where I provided students with individual therapy, psychoeducation, and outreach programming.
My counseling approach is a combination of cognitive-behavioral and person-centered therapy. My professional areas of interest include anxiety, depression, relationship, and communication concerns, working with sexual assault survivors, grief and loss, identity and sexuality exploration, substance abuse and life transitions. I am a Safe Space Ally and have participated in and continue to participate in regular continuing education on cultural competency, diversity, and inclusion.
When I'm not working, I spend time with my friends, family and cat, Arlo. I enjoy reading, being outside, listening to true crime podcasts and indulging in a good Netflix binge!

Hello! My name is Harli, I am new to King's College and very excited to be here! I received my Master's in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and my Bachelor's in Psychology from the University of Scranton. I have five years of experience in community mental health in an outpatient setting. Most of my experience is working with children, adolescents, and young adults. I incorporate a humanistic, cognitive behavioral, and strength-based approach to meet clients' individual needs. I believe in working closely with the client to empower them to accomplish their goals. Some of my professional areas of interest include anxiety, depression, sexuality and identity exploration, autism, life transitions, self-esteem, and trauma. I am safe zone trained and continue to participate in continuing education and supervision. In my free time I enjoy reading, hiking, traveling, and watching good shows. I also enjoy spending time with my friends, family, and two cats, Lennon and Fig.
