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.

Hey everyone! I am here to help with providing ways to get started in developing a new and happier you. I graduated from the University of Alabama with a Masters Degree in Counseling and I am also a certified rehabilitation counselor, having worked with youth and adults with learning disabilities. In addition I have a post-graduate certificate in Addiction Studies. I am a believer that if the mind and body are focused on goals, obstacles can be overcome, as you become more confident and powerful. We will begin our journey together as we work in small steps toward developing your new goals. These will always be your goals and I am here to help guide you toward them. My work begins by listening to you and then we will summarize what your expectations are. Then I will reflect to you what you have communicated. I will tell you what we can expect to change and how we will be able to make that change happen. My therapeutic techniques are driven by your needs and how you will respond to the new direction. No one said life would not send us off the pretty path that we all want to remain on. It happens. I can't think of anyone who has not had obstacles to overcome. I specialize in helping people overcome rejection, low self-esteem, work issues, disabilities, anxiety, living in the past, how to forgive themselves, addictions, how to stop living your life as the victim, and how to love and accept yourself and others.

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.

"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!"

Then I help you to develop skills and solutions tailored for you to help you move forward toward that healthier life. It's a collaborative approach. You and I work together through this process. From this perspective, listening is the most-important part of communication.

Are you experiencing difficulty moving forward with life after trauma, loss or unanticipated setbacks in life? Do anxiety and worry prevent you from fully engaging and living the life you want to live? Hello my name is Kristin and I enjoy helping survivors of trauma and loss and those struggling with anxiety, depression and adjustment disorders heal from past experiences and develop confidence and courage to navigate life's challenges. Although the process looks different for everyone, I strive to help clients understand and empower themselves through identifying and building upon personal strengths, connecting to values, understanding connections between past experiences and current challenges and providing skills and support to process difficult emotions and confront triggers and fears as they emerge in everyday life. I treat individuals of all ages with a variety of backgrounds and experiences. However, I especially enjoy working with children and adolescents who are struggling with anxiety and worry as well as those who experienced the loss of a loved one or pet. I believe that therapy is an adventure that should be playful, engaging and directly relatable. I welcome humor and sarcasm and particularly love incorporating client's personal interests and popular culture into sessions. I often bring my two adorable chihuahuas, Dusty and Attila, into virtual sessions when desired and feasible. I believe that the telehealth platform provides an incredible opportunity to connect and work together in a relaxed setting. I work best with clients who desire and embrace this non-traditional modality and strive to ask questions, challenge assumptions and apply insights gleaned or skills taught in therapy to situations

Welcome! My name is Evan Miller and I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and psychotherapist in the state of Pennsylvania. The goal of therapy is to facilitate personal growth and help you improve your life. I believe there is no one-size-fits all approach to therapy, so this can take many shapes and forms depending on your needs. Whether you're looking to build self-awareness, strengthen your relationships, change your unwanted habits, better manage your stress or just feel better emotionally - I am here to help! I consider the therapeutic relationship to be fundamental to all forms of good therapy, so I continually strive to create an environment that is supportive, safe, authentic, comfortable and non-judgmental. While I have specialized training in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing (M.I.) and Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) for OCD, I utilize a person-centered and integrative approach that also incorporates elements of attachment theory, existential-humanistic theory and harm reduction philosophy.

The most significant action a person can take to improve their mental health, is seeking a professional to aid them in addressing their mental health. You have taken this step because you, or a loved one are experiencing difficulty in your daily life. In many ways the most important step is now behind you and now you need to pick a partner for the remainder of this journey toward a balanced, positive outlook and good mental health. I am a licensed therapist, practicing in Pennsylvania with experience working as a mental health counselor and life coach. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD, and ADHD. I have also worked with many people who have experienced physical trauma and/or emotional abuse. My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. There can be a wide range of reasons you are experiencing stress, anger, anxiety confusion or any other issue, that is affecting your life. My job is to build a trusting relationship where you feel comfortable discussing the root cause/s so we can make significant progress. It will be a collaboration. Together we will build a foundation of change that improves your mental health and overall... your life. I look forward to working with you

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.

I have 31 years of experience providing counseling. I use cognitive behavioral therapy, stressing that what we think determines what we feel and what we do. For many reasons, people learn unrealistic or destructive thoughts that cause them problems in their lives. Therapy works towards more realistic thinking, and avoiding old and destructive thinking. As I like to say, "therapy is a conversation with a destination," and realistic thinking is that destination. While I am a Christian, I am not trained as a Christian Counselor. I am a "Counselor who is a Christian." My training is secular, and I regularly see people or all faiths, or none at all. I do not offer court ordered services, nor do I do assessments for custody, or any other legal purpose. Unfortunately, I cannot accept Medicare, or Medicare based plans. The world is changing, and more and more people are reaching out. I am seeing more men that have been in abusive relationships. There are also more people dealing with loss. Coming to my office is not like going to a big mental health clinic where you just another number on a spreadsheet. In my care, you are a person, and you'll be treated like one.
