Clinical Manager, Psychotherapist

The journey of life can often be unpredictable. Despite our best intentions and plans, we often encounter different crossroads and life transitions. Sometimes you see them coming and other times, they come out of nowhere! Sometimes these crossroads are about yourself, such as realizing you aren’t doing what you want to do, or that you have lost touch with your inner self and who you are. Sometimes, they are about others, including relationship issues. Crossroads can be challenging, especially when you’re confronted with difficult decisions. I can help you navigate these difficult, sometimes downright scary transitions!

Each of my clients is a unique individual. I want to get to know you first. You are not a set of problems that need to be “fixed,” you are a whole person who I am eager to get to know and walk alongside in their therapy journey.

I am committed to providing a judgement free space where you can share things you can’t say out in the rest of the world, no matter how dark you may think they are. I have found that speaking one’s truth can begin the process of powerful self healing.

Deb holds a Master’s degree in Clinical and Counseling Psychology from Chestnut Hill College. She specializes in anxiety, depression, trauma, women’s issues, life transitions, and borderline personality disorder. She works with individuals (over 15) and couples. You can meet with Deb at our Audubon office Monday through Friday.

Psychotherapist

Time and time again, I bear witness to people trying to prove their emotions. To walk that path safely, little of that kind of effort is needed. This is where companioning becomes an important aspect of my work, especially with grief or any kind of sudden overwhelming change. Nobody can promise to solve loss, but I can promise to sit with someone in that space and be their storykeeper as they hold that feeling that needs to be honored.

I work really closely with my clients such that they know they’re always holding the reins in therapy. My teens and I talk about the idea of sitting in different depths; sometimes we want to go deep, but other times we want to stay closer to the surface. We need both! The moment is always available to check where we are in the ocean because sometimes, the answer isn’t down there today, and there’s genuine joy in the shallow end. The ebb and flow of this style is something that I find sacred, and people who are drawn to it find it especially helpful when confronting something scary or new.

I care passionately about character, narrative, art and metaphor when working with people who feel really attached to pop culture and stories. Video game heroes, villains, muses: it is so helpful for someone to have found that “Wow, that’s me!” “That’s my story!” piece that adds to their lives. I wholly welcome that! Fictional characters are often metaphors for humanity, so it would be weird to leave out these comparisons. I hold so much love and care for the creatively therapeutic process and how we come to shape our art and in turn, are shaped by it.

Tim holds a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Kutztown University. He specializes in gender & sexuality, grief & loss, attachment, emerging adulthood, ADHD, OCD, and challenges related to the autism spectrum. He works with kids and their parents, teens, young adults, and adults, and has experience with play therapy for kids. You can see Tim at our Audubon office Monday through Friday.

Psychotherapist Intern

Sanctuary has always been a big part of my life. I was offered the opportunity as an Undergraduate to intern here, and it was during this time that my desire to pursue a career in therapy flourished. I eventually transitioned into my current role as the Welcome Coordinator here at Sanctuary. I am able to welcome all of our new clients to the Sanctuary Family and make sure they are taken care of.

While my responsibilities include insurance calls and going over intake questions, I truly enjoy being able to assist our clients in finding the right therapist for them. In this role, I strive to convey the importance of therapy, and I can assure our new clients that it’s not scary at all to get started!

In the long run, my goal is to work here at Sanctuary as a therapist. The hands-on nature of this job allows me to see the business side as well as the clinical side. I hope that I can make you all feel welcome and supported during your time with us.

You can find Oriana at our Douglassville location and Audubon location Monday through Friday, answering the phone, making calls, and welcoming new clients! She will help find your perfect match with our therapists.

Executive Director, Psychotherapist

“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.”
