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.


Helene

Helene earned her master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from Chestnut Hill College in 2019 and completed her internship in the counseling center at Muhlenberg College. Helene is working toward licensure in the state of Pennsylvania . Her years in education greatly enriches her approach to working with individuals of all ages but particularly with children. Helene is passionate about integrating the restorative power of the outdoors within school systems through curriculum development and supplemental programs.

Helene’s clinical approach involves cultivating a safe environment for clients to explore conflicts and challenges in their lives in ways that feel authentic to them at a pace that promotes sustainable healing and change. Whenever appropriate, Helene integrates outdoor experiences into clients’ sessions.

When she is out of the office, Helene can be found exploring the outdoors with her kids and hanging out at home with her cats, dog, and chickens.


Jocelyn

She operates from a holistic perspective, valuing both the psychological and physical well-being of clients. Jocelyn has a particular clinical interest in disordered eating concerns, the psychosocial effects of chronic illness and food allergies, and personal growth and development. She believes in the uniqueness of each client’s journey and seeks to meet their needs accordingly.

Jocelyn brings nine years of leadership and human resources experience to Reset’s Ascent program in addition to her clinical acuity. Her passion for nurturing sustainable growth with individual clients combines powerfully with her strategic and analytic thinking skills to promote dynamic group development and culture change.

Jocelyn loves all things outdoors and avidly pursues kayaking, hiking, paddle boarding, and camping. When “stuck” inside, she enjoys practicing yoga and reading, and playing Legos with her kids.
