OUR TEAM

Connor

Connor is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Pennsylvania and also a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC) and a Gallup Certified Strengths Coach. He earned a dual master’s degree from Arcadia University in International Peace and Conflict Resolution and Counseling Psychology with a certification in Trauma and Recovery.

While his work is grounded in validated theories and techniques, Connor is also creative, continuously developing his capacity for meeting client needs with innovative strategies. Connor feels most at peace in the great outdoors. He is most drawn to water and trees, particularly places where there are both! Connor is a certified ACA level 1 kayak and stand up paddle board instructor.

Since integrating CliftonStrengths into his work, Connor’s approach has become even more unique and effective.   With a focus on behavioral and organizational sustainability, the Reset Outdoors Ascent program is the first strengths-and-nature based team conditioning program in the United States.

Emily

Emily is a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Pennsylvania, in practice since 2016. She earned a master’s degree in Counseling and Human Services from Lehigh University.

Emily intentionally tailors her approach to each client’s specific needs, utilizing a number of evidence-based therapeutic techniques. She believes each individual already possesses exactly what they need to achieve healing, therefore she works hard to support her clients in their efforts to uncover their own power, resilience, and sense of peace.

While she works with people from all different backgrounds, she specializes in working with the LGBTQ+ population, particularly related to issues of gender and sexuality. Supporting people through social and/or medical transition is a part of her career that she is especially passionate about.

Spending time outdoors is something Emily finds thoroughly restorative. When she doesn’t get the chance to be outside for extended periods of time, noticing the sounds of wildlife around her, particularly bird songs, brings her great joy. While she offers sessions in a traditional office setting, she also loves the opportunity to get her clients out of the office and into the great outdoors.
