Meet our Clinicians
Jed Baronia, LPC, MS Ed, M Phil Ed
Everyone has parts of themselves they wish they could change or get rid of. A lot of my journey, both personally and professionally, has emphasized the importance of learning to accept and even love those parts of myself. I want to support others as they begin to see that self-acceptance and self-love is possible for each and everyone of us. Sometimes, all it takes is allowing the things we are most afraid to show to become celebrated parts of who we are. This process is about the importance of being open and honest about yourself, even when it's hard.
Often, we don't always have avenues to express or explore these parts of ourselves safely, complicating our relationship with the aspects of ourselves that we may want to be more open about. I am passionate about creating a therapeutic space for you to do just that - express yourself openly and without fear of judgement. I also believe in the power of expression and exploration using the arts. Expressive arts, such as the use of music in therapy, allow us to connect with parts of ourselves that we may not have the language for or may be at the beginning of understanding.
Therapy with me is a team sport. I'm all about open and honest communication, and I really encourage client feedback. While I have clinical expertise, I very much consider the client to be the expert on themselves in therapy. I value both patience and progress in the therapy room because I understand that everyone works at their own pace. More than anything though, I want clients to feel comfortable in the room. Therapy is a really courageous and vulnerable thing to do and the very least I can do is strive to offer a space for clients to make it their own. I love being able to connect with my clients about virtually anything, and I'm a believer that it's important to understand people in their own unique ways.
Jed holds an MS Ed. in Counseling and Mental Health Services as well as an M Phil. Ed. in Professional Counseling from the University of Pennsylvania.

Oriana Kramer Almquist, LPC, MA
Psychotherapist, Trauma Specialist
Everyone needs a space in which they feel safe being vulnerable to process the challenging and unexpected parts of life. I believe that the best setting for therapy is one that cultivates an environment of authentic care, establishing a trusting relationship where new depth and insight can be reached. I will always meet you where you are in your life and journey, providing you with a trauma-informed approach to healing that works at your own pace. My own experiences with Chronic Pain and Chronic Illness have helped me establish a deep understanding of the complex emotions and life circumstances associated with these conditions. You will not only be heard in my office, you will be compassionately listened to and believed.
I have experience working with a diverse range of communities, all of which have needed a healing space to express and process fear, frustration and shared experiences. I have learned how to sit with people experiencing complex emotions, providing a compassionate presence to accompany them through the healing process each step of the way. I enjoy utilizing art and creative writing in therapy when requested by clients.
Oriana has a Master's Degree in Counseling with an emphasis in Trauma Studies from Eastern University, and a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from Kutztown University. You can meet with Oriana in our Douglassville and Audubon offices as well as via telesession. She specializes in helping with Trauma, Grief, Chronic Illness, Gender and Sexual Identities, and Social Anxiety.

Savina Lawrence, MS
Emily Bensinger, MA
Psychotherapist, Art Therapist
I am a Master’s level Art Therapist and Psychotherapist with clinical experience providing art therapy and psychotherapy to children, adolescents, adults, and seniors from diverse backgrounds in various settings. I work from a person-centered, humanistic, trauma-informed approach, and meet each of my clients exactly where they are in their healing journey to best meet their needs. Building a strong therapeutic relationship is essential to my clinical work, as I strive to create a calm, safe, and accepting environment where all are welcome to express themselves freely and authentically.
Our sessions together can be traditional talk therapy focused or can provide space for creative artistic expression. I genuinely believe that healing is possible through the process of art making which can provide a creative, experiential, alternative means to cope with pain and process difficult emotions when words are not enough. People of all ages and backgrounds can benefit from Art Therapy. There is no skill or previous artistic experience necessary; just an openness to creativity, self-expression, and willingness to explore the unknown.

Marriage and Family Therapist Intern
Are you looking for support that is both knowledgeable and compassionate? Perhaps you are exploring a new role in your life – parenthood, a new career, a new chapter – or perhaps you carrying something that has been with you for some time – trauma, grief, depression. Maybe you are just seeking a deeper understanding of yourself. I know from my own experiences that therapy can be powerful in creating change and healing. I believe that one of my roles as a therapist is to provide a source of hope for clients.
Hope that change is possible, hope that tomorrow can be better. I bring that optimism and kind regard for my clients into the therapy room and use them as instruments of change. While that change looks different from person to person according to their own unique identity and circumstances, my emphasis on kindness, honesty, and connection remain the same.
Our work together will be heavily informed by EFT and mindfulness practice. I am humanistic, feminist, and rely heavily on the wisdom of attachment science to guide our therapeutic work together. At the core of my work with clients is the aim to bring about deeply felt experiences of change here-and-now in the room, which leave lasting effects. Let’s connect.
