Hello, my name is Lynn Ackert, I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC) in the state of Pennsylvania with 13 years of experience. My background includes working with children and teenagers in various mental health settings, and with adults of all ages in crisis and outpatient settings. In my work with clients, I focus on my clients' strengths, by creating an open and safe environment of rapport where thoughts and feelings can be shared without judgement. Taking the first step to connect to therapy takes courage. I am here to support you on that journey. I enjoy working with clients using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and pulling from other therapeutic orientations for skills and tools to manage challenges. Working with clients on anxiety, depression, trauma and life challenges offers the opportunity to use strengths to create a joyful life. I am trained in Prolonged Exposure Therapy for trauma memories and follow a trauma-informed practice with continuing education on various topics.

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

In our first session together, we will start with brief introductions, identify strengths and challenges, and begin therapy goal setting that we will work through in subsequent sessions.

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

I work with adults experiencing life transitions from young adulthood, work, creating a family, caring for loved ones and creating a meaningful life balancing reducing work, retirement and finding enjoyment in later years. Throughout life transitions depression, anxiety, co-dependent relations, and processing trauma may need to be addressed.
