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.

Hi I'm Gwyn! Have you found that somedays are great and other days you can barely accomplish minimal tasks. This struggle is real and often times we can thank anxiety, depression, and trauma for this rocky road. The body and mind desires balance, consistency, and routine which can easily be disturbed with everyday life stress. Perfection is not an option however, by working together we will explore how to feel more in control of your stress and anxious thoughts. I work with my clients to create an open and safe space where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgement. I am here to support and empower you in that journey. Let’s restore hope together.

The best pitch for therapy is simple, “do you have bad feelings or uncomfortable thoughts that you want to talk to someone about?” My name is Ed Lessard, and that’s what I am best at. I talk to people about their most distressing and uncomfortable thoughts and feelings, listen actively, without judgment, and respond with empathy, advanced education in mental and public health, and evidenced based treatments for specific issues like depression, interpersonal conflict and trauma. Like many therapists, I started as a patient, no better or worse than the people who come to see me for help. I work collaboratively with my clients to help them identify, understand and cope with the problems they are facing and define their own versions of success and happiness.

I am a psychotherapist who works with a diverse population of people. My goal is to collaborate with individuals to assist them in achieving their therapy goal(S). My treatment modalities are cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, mindfulness-based therapy, and Ericksonian hypnotherapy approaches. Although I used these modalities, I do not use a one size fits all approach. I am a think-out-of-the-box clinician that will often challenge clients to try approaches that may be out of their comfort zone. Some examples of my experience include working with individual clients on developing skills in coping with mental health conditions/diagnosis, life stress, finding balance, and improving self-esteem. Although I use these approaches, my clients tell me it feels like we are having a conversation as opposed to feeling like they are in a therapy session. I have a specialization in working with Veterans, LGBTQI, men, and people of color populations. However, I work with all people who are seeking mental health services. I am licensed in DC (LICSW), VA (LCSW), MD (LCSW-C), and PA (LCSW). I have BS in Human Ecology, BA in Humanities from The Ohio State University, MSW from San Jose State University and Post Masters fellowship in mental health from Stanford University.

Greetings and welcome. My name is Elizabeth Brillon and I am an expert in managing anxieties and trauma. Life doesn't seem to work out the way we expect it to, does it? Do you ever feel like sometimes it is just too much to handle? When you pause to take a moment to think, are you pondering why your connections with others aren't allowing you to gain the elements you need to be at peace? This disharmony can be difficult to balance without support. I form partnerships with individuals to identify manifestations of trauma and develop appropriate tools for symptom management. Oftentimes, trauma also goes hand-in-hand with anxiety and depression. Whatever the case may be, I help motivated learners move forward on their holistic wellness journey through the incorporation of customized tools rooted in evidence-supported interventions. It can feel lonely when you feel overwhelmed by those things in life that you cannot control. You are deserving of peace, safety, and healing in the therapeutic setting. You can look no further if you reach out to me. To properly care for our individual selves, we must nurture both our physical and mental health. Join me for the partnership and we will journey forward collaboratively.
