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.

I work from a humanistic approach and believe in being holistic and pulling from a variety of counseling theories and techniques to meet clients where they are at. I work with children and adults from diverse backgrounds and with a range of concerns. I have experience working with anxiety, depression, trauma, personality disorders, dual-diagnosis clients, etc. I have a special interest in military, first responders, and children from the child welfare system. I believe that counseling is a partnership of sorts and try to help individuals meet their full potential by understanding their life experiences from their perspective. I combine experience with education to provide a realistic approach to counseling by empowering individuals in their journey and help them meet their full potential. While I am grounded in a humanistic, person-centered approach, I believe that no one person is the same and that having an eclectic approach to helping others is important. Please feel free to reach out and see how I can best help you meet your needs and reach your full potential.

I believe in creating a safe environment for individuals to feel comfortable to begin the process of self-discovery, growth, and healing. I believe that therapy is a collaborative endeavor that requires genuine caring without judgment. I assist individuals in clarifying their goals for treatment, rather than adopting one modality for all individuals and presenting problems. I consider myself to be an active therapist combining my experience, education, creativity, and sense of humor with a warm, direct, and down-to-earth approach to counseling. I have a wide range of interests and specializations, including but not limited to, anxiety and panic, depression, relationship turmoil, life transitions, bereavement, and post-traumatic stress disorder. I utilize a range of interventions including cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and motivational interviewing.

I am a licensed clinical social worker licensed in Pennsylvania. I am a specialist in the treatment of trauma disorders, including dissociative disorders. Trauma comes in many forms — experiences like bullying, a sick parent, family with mental illness — all of these can result in a trauma burden. Healing trauma opens up possibilities for richer relationships, improved coping with day-to-day problems, and life satisfaction.

I have been a counselor for over 14 years, specializing in treating trauma, PTSD, and attachment wounding. I am trained in EMDR and DNMS. My training and experience helping people heal from attachment wounds as well as big and little traumas guide my overall treatment for struggles with depression, bi-polar disorder, anxiety, OCD symptoms, addictions and difficulties in relationships. I help people recover from common adult traumas of greif, being betrayed, being blind-sided, and even church trauma. Through DNMS I now offer healing from childhood wounding from having an overly critical, controlling, or an emotionally distant caregiver. I am grateful for many of my trainings which are guided by all that is being learned about emotional health through neuroscience, and provide very practical and interactive therapy treatment methods.

When I was in grad school I was asked this question: why do you want to do therapy? My answer was immediate: "I want to alleviate suffering!" A more experienced clinician shared a perplexing truth with me: sometimes you can't, you can just sit with the person through it. Over the years I have been honored to hold space for my clients to share their stories of courage and pain. I started to see what she meant, and revised my motto: I want to alleviate suffering and when I can’t I want to create a soft place to land. So, "Why therapy?” For all those who have forgotten their strength and just need a soft place to land. Using a blended approach of top therapy models, I partner with Clients to create lasting change and find freedom in ways that feel authentic to each person. Together we will learn new concepts, practice practical skills, and transform self-limiting patterns. Life can be hard. I want to help. Let’s talk!

Hello and welcome, I'm Sarah! Life can be stressful, overwhelming, and beautiful. I believe we all can benefit from professional support through therapy. Therapy looks different for everyone, but it is always a joint effort of therapist and client. I bring empathetic understanding, evidence-based clinical techniques, and a safe environment... you bring your unique experience in life, expertise on your situation, and willingness to work on yourself. I specialize in helping those who need support navigating the stress of life, as well as those who have experienced trauma. Additionally, I specialize in treating individuals in prenatal/postpartum support. My clinical training is in EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing). This highly specialized technique allows people who are "stuck" in depression, anxiety, trauma, OCD, and psychotic disorders where other therapies have not been successful. We will go at your speed. Thank you for taking this first step in your healing!
