Asking for help is hard. When life gets to be overwhelming, talking about the issues can help organize your thoughts. The therapeutic relationship is the most important tool we'll use! We'll work on building trust, a sense of safety, open communication, and humor to identify how we can improve on your already existing coping skills, supports, and knowledge. I utilize an eclectic approach to best meet your needs. I believe that being kind and compassionate with yourself is the first step to healing and creating change. I enjoy providing therapy for women and adolescents 14 and up. I love working with women and teens on issues such as grief and loss, depression, anxiety, mood disorders, trauma, and relationship problems. I can offer compassion and a safe space to explore what's going wrong and what we can do about it. Taking the first step is the hardest. I'd love to work with you on your journey to improved mental health. I'd also like to add that I'm a cat lady, a Swiftie, an avid reader, a mom of a teenager, and an introvert. I'll likely be drinking coffee with a cat in my lap during our session! If this sounds like a good fit, let's go!

As a parent or caregiver, seeing your child struggle with mental health challenges, behavioral issues, loss or trauma can be confusing and overwhelming. Mental health challenges are widespread among our children and can seriously affect their quality of life. However, with therapeutic intervention, children can learn to communicate feelings, cope with challenges, and develop problem-solving skills that will help them to thrive in all areas of their lives. My name is Annike Sprow, and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who specializes in working with children with emotional and behavioral challenges, and trauma histories.

I believe therapy can be a universally rewarding practice that can help navigate through life's stressors. Especially in the last few years, we see how important it is to take care of ourselves and find support. It can be overwhelming and intimidating even trying to find a place to start. My goal is to help you navigate through obstacles and barriers you may experience in order to start looking forward to the future. You are the expert on your thoughts and experiences, and we will work together to find solutions that best fit your needs. My orientation is client-centered, meaning that you and I are equal partners in navigating the struggles you are going through. My approach is integrative, drawing from cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), solution-focused therapy (SFT), and humanistic approaches. My style is warm and casual; I understand the importance of building a strong and trustworthy relationship to create a safe and comfortable space for you. My main objective is to help you make the changes you need to have a life you enjoy living. We will work together to rediscover excitement in life and overcome the stressors that can overshadow them.

"Life can be stressful, overwhelming and confusing at times. It's as if you have this weight that is on your shoulders that does not seem to get any lighter. Therapy is a great way to unpack the load that you are carrying and help make life more manageable. Whether it's conflict with your children, spouse, co-workers or friends, or financial difficulties, or even the pressure you put on yourself, all of these concerns and more I address with my clients in therapy. My approach to therapy is to provide a safe place where you can be yourself and talk about issues and topics that matter to you. It is a value based and strength based approach meaning, each of us have values that we live by and have built in strength and resiliency. Therapy is a tool that can highlight those values and build upon those strengths. I am a licensed psychologist who has experience working with children, adolescents and adults to help them achieve their personal goals. I look forward to assisting you with developing insight into your own life about recurring patterns, thoughts or behaviors and help you learn more adaptive ways of approaching life so you can master it!"

Hi! I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) based in Pennsylvania. If you're here feeling stuck, overwhelmed, or intimidated, therapy can be a huge first step to regaining a sense of control. I work with adults looking for support with the stresses and challenges in their life. I believe in the value of gaining an understanding of how past experiences impact present day challenges. This may look like uncovering insecurities, patterns, and habits that are difficult to recognize on your own. Together we can address these at a pace you feel comfortable with. I have experience helping clients with anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, trauma, ADHD, grief, and obsessive-compulsive disorder.

Hi there! Let's sit and chat... Are you looking for a safe space to explore and organize your thoughts and feelings? Many people see therapy as a one-sided conversation, with little opportunity for interaction or getting to experience one another as real people. I can assure you our sessions will be as real as it gets! I want to help you achieve whatever solutions and life changes you are looking for. We'll work on building trust, a sense of safety, open communication, and humor to identify how we can improve on your already existing coping skills, supports, and knowledge. Although this process may be challenging, we will work to enjoy the process as much as possible, so you can experience yourself, your relationships, and your life in new ways. Simply put, I don't think therapy has to be a painful thing for you. Starting this step can be hard and I would love the opportunity to work with you on this journey. For Private Pay Clients: Individual Sessions: $115/hour Couple/Family Sessions: $140/hour **While I am in network with various insurances, all couples and families are seen via private pay. This allows us to focus on the relationships in the room, rather than the diagnosis of an individual.

Do you want to break free from what’s holding you back? Sometimes thoughts and behaviors we developed to overcome difficult times are no longer serving a purpose. We all come with positive and negative experiences that inform how we move through the world. Difficult experiences don’t need to define or control us. Together we will work to understand your story, develop self-compassion, and ultimately make positive, long-lasting change.

To others it may seem like you've got it all together, but on the inside you're spinning out of control. Panic randomly punches you in the chest, taking your breath away, and you can't focus on anything else other than how to make it stop. You are consumed by trying to keep up with everyone else since they seem to have it all together, but you can barely function through the day. You feel like an awful mom because you are lashing out on your kids and hating the daily monotony instead of "embracing the joy of motherhood." You feel like you are failing your partner because somewhere along this journey you just lost yourself. You want to be a better mom to your kids. And remember why you fell in love with your partner. And stop the tornado of anxiety that knocks you out on the regular. You want to stop living by the expectations of others and rediscover who you truly are. It's time to win back some peace of mind and self-worth and attract the life you want. I have the DBT and mindfulness skills, which uses both mind and body exercises that will help you manage the crippling anxiety, love yourself better, be a more present and joyful mom, improve your relationships, and attract the life you want.
