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.

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.

There are times in all our lives when things just do not seem to be working for us anymore. During these difficult times, it is helpful to have support and guidance by a trained professional. I see psychotherapy as a process of discovery between two people that can yield great personal growth and transformation. My name is Dr. Alair Altiero and I aim to promote a safe, supportive and trusting psychotherapeutic relationship that facilitates the exploration of areas of difficulty, hurt, and vulnerability. I work to guide my clients to have insights into their own unproductive behaviors from new perspectives, have increased confidence, and gain self-acceptance. I ask probing questions and point out inconsistencies while providing feedback, advice, insights, and observations. I have 15+ years of experience helping people from varied backgrounds with a range of challenges. I specialize in assisting people overcome depression and anxiety, change repeated unproductive behaviors, cope with medical problems, work with and through the emotional journey associated with grief/loss and improve their relationships with others. I know that reaching out for help can be hard, and that many people put it off for a long time. However, I believe that you owe it to yourself (and the people you love) to take this first step toward a happier, peaceful and meaningful life.

Hello! Long before I became a licensed social worker, I took on the role of " therapist" to others around me. Helping people has always come naturally to me and is a gift that I credit to my grandmother. I have also experienced my own struggles and challenges which has allowed me to develop compassion towards others. Through some of my own life experiences with grief and loss, traumatic events and feeling ' stuck' I have come to see the benefit of both positive and negative life events. All of those experiences have challenged me and helped me to grow both spiritually and mentally. In some of my most vulnerable times, I appreciated and noticed the life changing power of a listening ear.   I am a licensed clinical social worker with over 14 years of experience in the mental health profession. I am passionate about helping others to find their strengths and advocate for their recovery. I have served in many different roles throughout my professional career and enjoy all of the people that I have been blessed with getting to know. Therapy can be scary, exciting and challenging and I am always eager to walk people through that process.

Sometimes the people in our lives just don’t get it. I have worked with those managing anxiety, depression, and family and relationship challenges. I also have special experience working with older adults, artists and creatives, career challenges and burnout, and people living with HIV or other health conditions. Our lives don't often offer the non-judgmental space to work through trauma, heartache, and overwhelming stress. Talking with a therapist is different from talking with a friend or family member because you are free of obligations and responsibility. It is all about you, and I will ask helpful questions, point out connections and patterns, and simply give you space to put yourself first and talk through your experiences. If you have been to therapy before, it may help to know I have the experience and training to work with those who have received a mild, moderate, or severe mental health diagnosis, but know that it is only one piece of the puzzle. Knowledge is power. I believe in psychoeduction - teaching you as much as you like about psychology and how our brains operate.

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.

Hello there, I'm Lisa. Do you feel like the world's troubles are on your shoulders? Do you feel like the pressures in everyday life are like a pressure cooker ready to explode? Is it hard to find peace of mind, and time to just relax and do things for yourself? I help people trying to manage multiple stressors in everyday life, weather it be work, school, family, or home life. We can work collaboratively on a plan to get you back on track to finding peace, tranquility, and harmony in a world now full of chaos. We can get on the road to work life balance. I use a person centered approach that incorporates mindfulness, CBT, and trauma informed practices to help the body, mind, and spirit. I can be the safe guard when dealing with anxiety, depression, PTSD, serious mental illness, and work stress. I know reaching out for help can be anxiety provoking, but it is a strong person who knows when they need some extra support. And there is no judgment here. This will be a safe environment, where you can voice your experiences, concerns, and troubles without fear. I believe in healing, and this will be a place to learn and grow. Let's get on the journey together to ultimate healing, and leave all the stigmas behind.

My name is Dr. Steven Mehl and I have been a licensed Clinical Psychologist in the state of Pennsylvania since July of 2016. I have worked primarily in college counseling centers as well as in nursing and rehabilitation facilities. In addition, I have worked for over a decade with adults of varying abilities who carry a diagnosis of developmental (autism spectrum) and/or intellectual disabilities. I have also gained some experience working with individuals struggling with drug and alcohol addiction while working at an outpatient treatment center. I have worked with individuals of all different ages and backgrounds and have enjoyed helping them address different psychological and general life issues. I practice primarily cognitive-behavioral (CBT) therapy, while also utilizing some alternative approaches. As a therapist, I strive to help clients by first establishing a sense of their background and aspects of their current motivation. It is this motivation that will help to propel the therapeutic process forward and ensure that you, the client, are the one who is in control.

Hi, I'm Cory! Do you feel unmotivated, uninspired, and stuck in the routine of life or your relationship? Are you searching for who you are at your core and learning to live a life aligned with that? Are you struggling with anxiety, burnout, depression, or stress, which gets in the way of you moving forward? I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 10 years of experience working with families, individuals, and couples. My belief is that we all have struggles throughout our lives, and with the right support, we all have the strength within us to overcome these obstacles. In walking this journey of growth and healing with you, we will use a mind, body, and soul approach. I believe if we are not fulfilling all areas of our health and wellness there will always be parts of us that are not aligned with our truest self, which hinders our natural healing cycle and interferes with us living a meaningful and fulfilling life. I work well with individuals experiencing life struggles related to anxiety, depression, trauma, negative patterns caused by toxic family dynamics, phase of life and adjustment issues, grief and loss, career challenges, self esteem obstacles, relationship struggles, developing and teaching coping skills, finding the root causes to negative patterns in your life, and helping to identify who you are as your individual self.

Hey, I am Alyssa. Are you looking for someone to help guide you through some life and behavioral changes that have been a struggle? Do you notice difficulty managing moods, communicating effectively with others, and/or giving yourself compassion? I am excited and ready to travel that journey with you and offer a nonjudgemental, safe environment, to build a real therapeutic relationship. I use evidence-based interventions within a dialectical behavior therapy approach that incorporates mindfulness skills and love and kindness. I center my practice around the belief that we are a team and need each other to achieve your goals, as you are the specialist on you, and I am the specialist on the skills. It can be scary reaching out for help, and I have a safe space for you to start! If you are struggling with a life event, daily stress, depression, anxiety, mood dysregulation, or impulsivity there is hope. You do not need to feel stuck or alone in the struggle anymore! I look forward to working together.

I am a therapist specializing in adult mental health and addiction disorders. I have 10 years of experience providing individual, family, group, and couples therapy. I have worked in both inpatient and outpatient environments. Here at Grow I offer individual and couples counseling. Individual counseling is billed through insurance or self-pay at $100 per hour. Couples counseling is self-pay only at $150 per hour. There is a no show fee of $100. There is a late cancellation (less than 24 hours) fee of $100. My mission is to be used by God to help others reach their highest potential and purpose in life; to represent and teach tolerance, respect, and harmony; and to promote social and economic justice. I believe that all people regardless of race, culture, age, gender, religion, physical or mental disability, and sexual orientation are entitled to basic rights and fair, humane treatment. I believe that all members of society should have the same basic rights, protections, opportunities, obligations, and social benefits. My practice is governed by the belief that you are a valuable human being. You have the right to express your ideas and opinions openly and honestly. You have the right to direct and govern your life. You have the right to stand up for yourself without anxiety and make choices that are good for you. You have the right to change your mind. You have the right to not be liked by everyone. You have the right to be wrong. You have the right to make requests and refuse them without feeling guilty. You have the right to ask for information. You have the right not to be responsible for others’ behaviors, actions, feelings, or problems.
