“My experience gives me a lot of insight into how hard it is to put your life back together. I think about how I got through things, and it was just the little moments of somebody seeing more than the situation that made all the difference.”

Business and Administration Manager

I’ll likely be the first person you see when you walk into Douglassville, and my goal is to make all who enter feel welcome in our home. When you’re here, I’ll be the person who says hello, checks you in, and offers a cup of coffee or tea while you get comfortable—I’m also the expert on office essentials, which includes our snacks & candy, and I’m always happy to hear requests for how we can make people feel more at home.

I found Sanctuary after I finished my degree from Albright College. Sanctuary was unlike any other counseling office I have worked in. I quickly felt welcomed by the people here and refreshed by how different the atmosphere was. My favorite thing about Douglassville is our therapy cat Vincent, you’ll often find me reprimanding him for jumping onto our kitchen table. Feel free to say hi to him and give him a pet when you stop by the desk to let me know about your scheduling changes!

Emily is at the Douglassville office Monday through Friday. Give her a call and she’ll connect you with the right therapist!

Ashley Robinson

Administrative Assistant

I first came to Sanctuary after I learned through a friend that they were growing and in need of an admin for their Audubon office. I had been struggling to find my place and after meeting the people here and feeling that warm atmosphere and strong sense of community, I felt immediately comfortable and at home as a I became a member of the Sanctuary family.

As the only admin at the Audubon office, I’m usually the first face you see when you walk through our doors and I want that to be a kind, welcoming, & smiling face. Our office is a place of deep healing and a place you can feel safe; I hope everyone feels that as they walk through that door. You’re always welcome to come have a chat with me, no matter how busy it gets in here! Our office is more than just a few rooms and a lobby, it’s a little piece of home.

I also take care of helping with the marketing and I run Sanctuary’s social media accounts. I try to make our accounts a resource for information, uplifting messages, and notifications about upcoming events. Sanctuary is a valuable resource to our community and I would love everyone to know about us! I don’t want to just get clients in the door, I want people to find their safe place among us, a place to gain peace, understanding, and love.

Ashley is at the Audubon office Monday through Friday. Give her a call and she’ll connect you with the right therapist!

Letecia Garcia, MA

Psychotherapist, Programming and Outreach Manager

I deeply believe in the power of human resiliency. I have seen that power firsthand time and time again in everyday people. People just like you and me. I’ve seen the limitless possibilities that come about when people are able to believe in themselves again (or perhaps for the first time) and recover their own personal strength. I want to be the person who can help you understand the difference between what you have experienced and who you truly ARE. You are a growing, changing, empowered person.

I would love to help you unlock those suppressed parts of yourself that we all try to hide from. Vulnerability is hard. Authenticity is hard. And trying to be anything else just leads to anger, anxiety, sadness… you know what I’m talking about. Being ourselves and genuinely connecting with others takes courage. It takes risk and perseverance. It takes insight, and it takes love.

My biggest mission and passion is to help you rediscover your most authentic self, and recognize that this is a continually evolving process. To remind you that you are connected to all things and you are not alone. You have courage waiting to be discovered.

Letecia has a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Kutztown University. You can meet with Letecia in our Douglassville office. She specializes in working with the LGBTQ+ community and women’s issues and likes incorporating holistic practices into her work when requested by clients.

Psychotherapist, Training & Onboarding Coordinator

Hello and welcome. If you have been guided to Sanctuary Counseling it is safe to assume that either you or a loved one is going through a difficult time. I am so glad you reached out. Life is full of challenging and often frightening moments, and while sometimes you can make it through these dark paths alone, having someone to walk alongside you can be immensely helpful. I would like to be that person for you.

I practice therapy as a journey you and I take together. I believe that in times of pain, trauma, and discomfort we all have the potential to grow into something beautiful and strong. Suffering can feel like darkness, and from that darkness – from that cocoon, if you will – we stand in a place of waiting to be transformed into something new and powerful. If this sounds like what you are experiencing, I am here to help facilitate your personal journey of transformation and growth.

Supporting people like you who are struggling with the aftermath of trauma and painful histories is my calling. It does not matter how recently or distantly this happened to you, together we can find ways of bringing you relief and peace. I have specialized training in EMDR (eye-movement desensitization reprocessing), a profoundly effective tool for decreasing the effects of something you experienced in the past that is still affecting you today. I am also certified in trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy. Our work together will be effective, and it will always proceed at YOUR pace. You are safe here.

Is your relationship struggling? Has there been infidelity or perhaps some other betrayal? Or are you looking to revive your dwindling connection? I have many years of experience supporting couples of all walks and constellations, and in that time I have learned that all couples need help sometimes. We all need skills and tools to thrive. I continue to study the latest techniques and research, particularly the Gottman method, to help you heal and strengthen your relationship.

Kaitlyn holds a Master’s degree in Marriage, Couple, and Family Therapy from the University of Central Florida. You can meet with Kaitlyn at our Douglassville office. She specializes in trauma, anxiety, relationship- and sexual-violence, alternative relationships, and LGBTQ+ concerns.
