Victoria Powell, LCSW

 

Hello! I'm Victoria and I am passionate about helping individuals with OCD address their concerns head on and try to reduce OCD's effect on life. I try to strive for a balanced approach to life and treatment by offering challenges when it is effective and finding self-compassion and warmth in tougher times. Treatment is not a linear process and I want to help individuals through the peaks and valleys of challenging OCD. 

I offer individual therapy to adults (over the age of 18) within the state of Pennsylvania via in-person services and telehealth.

Tom J Cohn

 

“I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.” ― Thomas A. Edison talking about his attempts to invent the light bulb. At times we feel that we are failing. In our relationships, our jobs, day-to-day struggles or life itself. However, often our so-called "failed attempts" are crucial steps towards increased well-being and healing. In more than 18 years as a marital and family therapist I have been continuously inspired by clients' creativity, resilience and curiosity in bringing about that healing.

I specialize in two areas, relationship therapy and OCD/Hoarding/Anxiety disorders. Gottman's approach with its emphasis on constructive conflict resolution, strengthening friendship and creating shared meaning offers practical strategies in building successful relationships. For OCD/Hoarding/Anxiety disorders I utilize Exposure and Response Prevention and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. 

Therapy is an exciting and vibrant partnership between therapist and client(s). I commit to this relationship my knowledge, expertise and creativity to support you through the challenges that brought you to therapy. I offer both daytime and evening appointments, and for OCD/Hoarding clients also home visits.

Rachel Hammons

 

It’s taken me a long time to write this because I desperately wanted my bio to communicate my heart for counseling, people, and the work that I do, but I also feel that words fall short when you’re trying to communicate something so intimate. First of all, you are brave for taking a step toward deeper healing, and I am honored that you might consider me as a support alongside you in your journey. Whether this is your first time seeking counseling or your 10th time, I hope to encourage and help empower you in your fight to become who you want to be. Whatever next step you decide to take, I hope the best for you.

My biggest hope is that you find healing and rest through working with me, and while I strive to meet you where you’re at and provide counseling based upon that, I use an attachment based approach along with EFT, ERP, ACT, and DBT modalities. I specialize in OCD, anxiety, depression, ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and gender dysphoria/identity exploration.

In all that I do, I hope to encourage you toward healing from past or current wounds, tools & techniques for being in what is presently going on in your life, & hope for making your future life the one in which you want to be. As Doc Brown says, "Your future hasn’t been written yet. No one’s has! Your future is whatever you make it. So make it a good one!”

Abby Simpson

 

My goal is to help clients become the best version of themselves. This might involve exploring values, challenging your negative thinking, overcoming personal challenges, or talking through relationship issues. My approach is to first get to know you in order to build a strong therapeutic relationship. Once that is established, we then work on a common goal to help improve your daily functioning. I will collaborate with you to assure that the treatment you are getting is what you are seeking. I specialize in treating OCD and other anxiety related problems. 

I strive to help my clients overcome personal and relational obstacles, take emotional risks, and build healthy and meaningful relationships going forward. I utilize goal-oriented and evidence-based approaches such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and exposure and response prevention (ERP).

Danny Miller

 

My primary clinical approach is research-based, but I am compassionate, caring, and spiritual at the heart. My practice - Healing Songs Therapy - is so named because I believe every person has a story to tell that either supports or distorts their healing identity. And that identity is at the base of so many issues we face. This will be a common theme we come back to throughout the course of our treatment.  

I offer guided EX/RP (exposure and response prevention) and CBT for OCD, using the Y-BOCS to measure symptom severity. Many people with OCD also suffer from trauma or depression. If there is either an acute or complex trauma component to your OCD, I may also work with you to come up with a plan for addressing that using EMDR or another validated trauma-based therapy.

Dr. Jude Black

 

I am passionate about being an interactive, supportive, and (gently) challenging therapist. Our busy lives leave us little time to process emotions, leaving disappointments, fears, resentment and pain no outlet until they reach overwhelming levels. I focus on earning your trust so that we can grapple with these difficult issues together. Using psychoanalytic theory as a foundation, I integrate evidenced based interventions to customize a treatment that is both effective and tailored to you. My approach focuses on creating lasting change to help you live a more thoughtful, fulfilling, and rewarding life. 

 

I am not a "bobble-head" therapist. I provide every individual or organization with solid tools and a focused plan in order to build lives that are rewarding and relationships to be proud of. I fuse ideas from different theories such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Trauma focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Psychodynamic (EMDR), Hypnotherapy, Existentialism, Functional Theory, and Transformational Leadership Theory with strength-based life coaching to provide an approach that is compassionate while being results oriented.  

This is absolutely and totally ALL ABOUT YOU! You are terminally unique and I strive to meet you exactly where you are. This is when true healing and change begins.

Jon Lewis

 

I focus on mindful listening to help identify challenges people are facing and how to overcome them.  The world is constantly changing, and we are doing our best to adapt but we all need time to stop and take a breath.  Having time to process our emotions and assess where we want to be in life can help us feel more at peace. Together my clients and I will tailor evidence-based interventions to best meet their needs and help them have a more fulfilling and satisfying life.  I have seen clients find success as we work together to identify personal strengths and develop positive coping skills.  Therapy time is your time.

Caitlyn Woodhouse

 

I use an advanced method of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) called TEAM-CBT that was developed by Dr. David Burns. This evidenced based treatment combines the empathic support of talk therapy with over 50 different methods to help you overcome life’s challenges. We will track your progress using before and after session surveys and work together in a structured way, so you can meet your goals as quickly as possible. I am optimistic that by the end of treatment you will leave feeling better and equipped with tools and a plan to help yourself get unstuck in the future.

I work with adults who are struggling with stress, anxiety, phobias, depression, and OCD. I tailor treatment to meet your goals, using a combination of CBT to help challenge your self-defeating beliefs, and possibly exposure/ERP in order to help you conquer your anxiety.

My approach requires a commitment from you to learn and practice skills learned in session. I feel excited when people come to session ready to seek change, and practice the skills. I provide a caring, fun, and safe environment to do this work. Please contact me for a free consultation.
