Counseling is a space where you can explore, process, heal and grow. By being vulnerable we can allow ourselves the space to reflect on who we are now and where we have come from. I believe that we deserve a space where we can feel safe, comfortable and free from judgement. In this space, we can take out some of the boxes that are stored away and discover how we can let go of what no longer serves us while creating new ways of being and relating to ourselves, others, and the world around us .

I believe we thrive when we experience belonging acceptance.

Tired of reading bios? I would be too, so I'll keep it short: I graduated from UPenn 10+ years ago with a Master's in Social Work. I have experience working in almost every setting you could imagine. I specialize in making people feel comfortable, safe, and validated. I specialize in treating my clients like they matter, are important & are worthy, no matter what they look like, sound like, or "seem" like. I'm also an expert in being a real human being and not a robot with automated responses who will "mhmm" you to death. My "approach" is understanding that I can't expect you to expose the deepest, darkest, most vulnerable parts of yourself to me if I remain a complete stranger to you. In our sessions, I want you to feel like you're with one of your best friends who you can trust, laugh and ugly-cry with. My only goal is to make you feel like you're not alone. Like you have someone in your corner who will fight for you, laugh with you, curse with you, and ugly-cry with you (I'm totally kidding, kinda, that part's negotiable).

I specialize in helping clients who are seeking a deeper connection with their souls. My clients are often individuals who are aware of their life experiences and traumas, yet feel stuck in cycles of anxiety, depression, and shame. I mainly work with creative individuals who may struggle with self-doubt, lack of motivation, and feelings of guilt or isolation. I help these clients understand themselves and their unconscious layers in a new way. My approach is safe, supportive, trauma-informed, and spiritually integrative, and clients report feeling seen and heard. My therapy approach blends Jungian depth psychology and psychoanalysis with tools from my diverse background as a therapist, tarot reader, bodyworker, yoga and meditation instructor, and social worker. I tailor interventions to each client's needs and goals. The decision to seek therapy is deeply personal, and it's important that the therapist you work with is someone with whom you feel safe opening up. I seek to provide a safe container for every client I work with. Reach out to begin or continue on your therapy journey!

My first focus as a therapist is to foster a space where you can be yourself. Where you can say or feel anything.

Currently, I work with adults experiencing anxiety, depression, grief and loss, life transitions, relationship problems, meaninglessness, and the residual impacts of past traumas. I do my best to acknowledge the many ways in which social, cultural, and economic inequities shape how we understand ourselves and interact with the world.

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’m a licensed professional counselor in the state of Pennsylvania, and I have been practicing for about a decade now. I enjoy working with my clients on cognitive behavioral therapy along with dialectical behavioral therapy, and also motivational interviewing tactics as well. I am very excited to work with clients that have been experiencing family conflict issues, along with anxiety and depression, and help tackle issues in their present day, personal and professional life’s. My style of therapy includes the importance of mind/body, physical, spiritual, and emotional health. In the years practicing as a clinician I have learned many therapeutic styles, and techniques that helps target individual problems also on the relational levels as well, working with individuals on intimacy issues and helping them increase communication skills effectively and have helped many couples and families restore healthy forms of communication. I truly love/enjoy neuroscience (overall brain health education) and have multiple trainings in this. I enjoy teaching my clients about the importance of brain health and how the body functions with the brain, and how certain mental health traits happen based on the chemistry of the brain, along with encouraging clients to practice self care, emotional regulation, and being able to think about ways of exercising healthy brain health. Your health is wealth! :)
