Living in a variety of areas throughout the country from the East to the West Coast. Allowed me to have life experiences combined with education that cultivates a safe and brave environment that is richly diverse and culturally competent.

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

Dr. Susan Shipley practices clinical psychology and works with clients, both adults and children. You have found a safe space to heal and grow. In our sessions together, I'll meet you with compassion and evidence-based techniques so you can overcome those things holding you back. Let's work together! My clients often have challenges such as anxiety, depression, and grief. I've had experiences working with young adults with anorexia, and people with phobias, panic attacks, obsessive compulsive thoughts and other intrusive thoughts, and folks who may have a dependent personality. I'm a school psychologist familiar with children with learning disabilities, ADHD, autism, developmental delays, and parents. Occasionally life challenges meet us at a particularly vulnerable time, and I work with people who have adjustment to such life changes, people who find they are severely co-dependent on others with addiction dependency, the alcoholic and drug dependent person. In addition, I've assisted those experiencing grief, including job loss. I'm an artist myself and a trained art therapist. I found, art making often speaks with more feeling and force than words alone. We will incorporate art if you choose. CBT works in a collaborative manner between the therapist and the client. Together, we can identify what's not working and get you back to balance. We'll use a whole self-approach, addressing your needs. I also integrate mindfulness, yoga, and art to help you develop a stronger relationship with others and most importantly yourself. You have found a safe space to heal and grow. In our sessions together, I'll meet you with compassion and evidence-based techniques so you can overcome the hangups and habits holding you back. Let's work together!

Hello I'm Jackie. Do you feel pulled in a million directions, unable to fit it all in? Are you struggling to keep up with your relationships, work and health? Is it hard to be kind to yourself? Are you faced with emotional challenges, do you long for clarity on the how, the why, and the what to do, and because understanding is always that one step closer to your healing I will help you answer the tough questions. If you are struggling with anxiety, depression, communication, relationship issues, grief, self worth, and more, you may need the help of a professional to help you on your journey to psychological health. I understand that facing the insurmountable stresses of life leaves many feeling uncertain about their place and purpose in the world. This is why I utilize a person-centered, evidence based approach to therapy that allows an individual the opportunity to discover and identify abilitIes that lead to accessing a successful life. Providing a safe, judgment-free, trustworthy and compassionate environment is the space I create as a therapist. In this space I help individuals focus on their individual needs, validate their experiences, unlock their inner strengths, and in so doing, reclaim their power to navigate a fulfilling life that is healed.

Do you feel overwhelmed these days? Are you constantly trying to strike a balance between the demands of work and parenting or co-parenting, while also managing your finances, your health, housework, and perhaps other demands? In your family, does the caretaking always fall to you? Are you experiencing depression and anxiety in reaction to either a past trauma and/or burnout from stress? My name is Blair Mead, and I work with women who are experiencing what I like to call "multiple-role fatigue". I have experience in treating depression, anxiety, and trauma-related stress disorders common to women who face an ever-mounting load of responsibilities in a complex society, where being a mother or a caretaker often comes with diverse challenges and responsibilities. I also like to work with clients on their recovery aspect of surviving trauma. With this focus in mind, I incorporate various treatment modalities, where healing and recovery can take place through a combination of compassionate conversation, active listening, homework assignments journaling, mindfulness, self-reflection, cognitive behavior therapy, grief counseling, boundary setting and trauma-informed care. I also offer a faith-based approach, where clients seeking support grounded in Christianity and the Bible can feel free to express themselves. I know all too well the challenges that modern parenting presents; I like to form a supportive alliance with caregivers to help them navigate the demands of parenting a child or children with higher needs. I like to focus on parental needs as much as the children's needs, and I work with clients using evidence-based techniques to empower them to achieve balance and experience lasting well-being. In my experience, effective behavior plans that are tailored to the family's specific needs often yield good results, and as the therapist, I'm here to help parents to make sure they are being consistent by tracking their progress in measurable ways. For parents, I'm a big advocate of self-care, and I help my clients learn to nurture themselves in a sustainable way to avoid burnout. I also believe that parents need to feel seen and heard, and the stress of parenting cannot be overemphasized. Forming a partnership with parents, and giving them a forum in which they feel consistently supported in a compassionate and non-judgmental way, therefore, is one of my top priorities as a therapist.

Though it has been a challenge, I am very pleased and honored to have been a part of the process to advocating for telemental healrh services. As an undergraduate and graduate student, I recognized first hand the lack of access to mental health services in Rural Pennsylvania.

I initially began working with children and adolescents, however; I have worked with adults and geriatrics as well.
