Whitney Kopco, LPC
Hi! I’m Whitney! I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor but that is just a fancy way of saying I’m someone you can talk to about anything and I’m trained in how to help.
I help people who wish they had extra support and encouragement but feel like they don’t have anybody they can trust. Some people are just uncomfortable talking to the people they do trust, like their parents, about certain topics. I support my clients in feeling more comfortable expressing their feelings, gaining confidence, and learning new communication skills and behaviors so they can have healthier and more rewarding relationships with parents, family, and friends.
Jamie Rimby, LPC
Hi, I'm Jamie!
Sometimes life puts us at a crossroads and we are left to decide how to proceed. Other times we might feel stuck, unsure of how to take the next steps on our life's journey. My job provides such powerful meaning and satisfaction because I have the honor of being the knowledgeable and caring professional that accompanies people during these challenging times, working collaboratively to solve problems, build strengths, and achieve goals.
Rella Miller, LCSW
Hi, I’m Rella!
As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I help people feeling overwhelmed by life stressors and the idea of change to create new mindsets and experiences. I guide them in gaining insight into past and present patterns so that they can grow and build new futures in which they will feel peace, clarity, joy, and hope.
Katie Greevy, LPC
Hi, I’m Katie!
I use an eclectic approach to therapy – all that means is that I take techniques from lots of different types of therapy to help you understand yourself and encourage change. I often use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to help reduce anxiety, cope with the residual impact of trauma, increase ability to manage depression symptoms, and improve self-esteem. I create a non-judgmental and calm space for you to explore and work through feelings, thoughts, image, and beliefs that may be keeping you stuck. In addition I provide feedback about how to increase self-awareness to make positive, healthy changes.
Megan Lavery, PsyD

I am passionate about supporting healthy behavioral changes in the face of barriers, low motivation, depression/anxiety, and health concerns.

Veronica Pilon, LCSW
Hi! I’m Veronica!
As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I enjoy taking a multi-view perspective when working with my clients and their families. Often times, our path to hope and healing has come after many negative experiences, relationships, etc. I enjoy helping clients identify their struggles and then work with them to overcome these barriers by trying different solutions. Some would say that I have an eclectic approach to providing therapy and really enjoying walking alongside my clients so they are empowered to heal.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and graduated from Edinboro University with a master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling.

I look forward to getting to know you and your story, and if we are a good fit as “travel companions”, to moving forward together!

Hi, I’m Megan!
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and received my graduate degree from Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia.

Life is good when you feel supported by and connected to the people in your life. I want to help you to be open and able to show your true self to your parents, family, partner, or friends. Let’s be honest, feeling connected and understood is one of the most significant parts of being human! It makes a huge impact on our emotional and mental wellbeing.

Jenny Clay, LPC
A little bit about me!
I got into this field because I am intrigued by human behavior. I am the person who enjoys observing a crowd of people. While I am a therapist, I am also part detective – helping you unravel and better understand your own thoughts and behaviors. I graduated from Cedar Crest College with my Bachelor’s in Psychology, and a minor in health and wellness. I completed my graduate work at Kutztown University where I focused on both systems theory (a fancy term for family dynamics) and transition age youth (i.e. young adults). I have over 7 years of experience in the mental health field. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with family and friends, baking, being outside, yoga, and reading.

Ellie Herman, LCSW
Hi! I'm Ellie, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor.
Deciding to talk to a therapist can be nerve-wracking. I want clients to feel empowered by the decision to learn about themselves, gain insight into their needs, and rewrite the stories they tell themselves. I believe each chapter of your story is important, and so are the shelves on which the storybook has been. Together, we can create new dialogues, foster self-compassion, generate new health-promoting patterns, and recognize the strengths you already have.
