Claire Kirsch


3 years of experience

Hi! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and Certified Clinical Anxiety Treatment Professional (CCATP) based in Pennsylvania. I have worked in the mental health field for 6 years. I assist individuals in the journey of self-discovery. I am passionate about the LGBTQ+ community and have extensive experience with navigating the challenges of spirituality and sexuality. I maintain consistent training in all areas of LGBTQ+ and kink-informed care to provide the most supportive environment to live authentically.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

Our first session will consist of introductions and diving into the challenges you are facing. Together we will co-create a plan and explore goals for future sessions.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I have worked in mental health in high levels of care, outpatient settings, volunteering, and overseeing an expressive art studio. I am a life-long learner and continue to pursue education to strengthen my skills as a counselor.

My treatment methods


“Not to take possession of your life plan is to let your existence be an accident.” ― Irvin D. Yalom I integrate your individual pursuit for meaning and purpose with person-centered validation and empathy. Together we will explore your authenticity, reflect on your humanity, and accept your autonomy.

Person-centered (Rogerian)

I believe you are the expert on your life. I will utilize reflection, empathy, and validation to provide support and encourage your autonomy and self-reflection.

Gender-affirming therapy

You are not a phase, you are a beautiful human being worth of being validated. I am much more than LGBTQ+ friendly, I have thorough experience with validation and support of your personal journey.

Sex Therapy

I bring a kink-informed, inclusive approach to sex therapy. I strive to create a safe space to explore yourself and heal. Together we will work to improve communication, foster safety in relationships, and ease your sexual anxieties.

Structural Family Therapy

I spent over two years working exclusively with families. Our developmental years and family patterns often shape our behaviors, together we will uncover those patterns and address change as needed.
