Several of our counselors have started to hold some of their hours as in-person hours in our offices. Both clients and counselors will be required to wear a mask and follow other CDC guidelines for in-person sessions. Please specify which type of service you would like when contacting us. We are still accepting new clients and maintaining services via in person, telehealth and telephonic sessions.

We will be updating our status on a weekly basis. Most insurances are accepting telehealth in order to allow for social distancing and isolation. If you are a current client, please ask your insurance if telehealth is covered if you that is the type of service you will be receiving.

We will happily work with all financial situations in order for our community to continue to be cared for emotionally. Please reach out to schedule an appointment if you need support. Be well and stay safe.

The office line is still in service and can be reached at 215-527-8012. Our email is jillkharle@gmail.com

Thank you for understanding our need to aid the community.

About

“Owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing that we will ever do.” — Brené Brown

 

Searching for meaning in one’s life can be frightening, challenging, and uplifting. In searching for this meaning, we are looking to examine the story of our life and address transitions, changes, and characters within it. I believe each individual is the best person to tell their story, and as a therapist, I will support you in developing the tools to tell this story.  

 

I am a clinician focused on developing and nurturing the therapeutic relationship between myself and my clients. I work with—rather than for my clients—helping them access tools for building narrative and addressing past, present, and future concerns. In my work as a therapist, I have worked with children, adolescents, and adults in navigating difficult transitions and addressing presenting issues. My therapeutic approach is holistic and client-centered. I utilize a variety of modalities in order to best to address your needs and areas of support. I often utilize mindfulness and grounding techniques to center us in our work together. My approach is empathic and practical, working to create a safe and comfortable environment for you to tell your story. 

 

Experience:

 

I received my Master’s degree in Social Work and Social Policy from the University of Pennsylvania. I am currently pursuing my PhD in Social Work at Widener University. I am licensed through the Association of Social Work Boards. I have worked with clients on a wide range of presenting issues, including anxiety disorders, mood disorders, thought disorders, relationship issues, trauma, and grief and loss. I have experience working with individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities (I/DD) as well as individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and their families. I utilize a variety of modalities with my clients, incorporating a holistic approach to healing and growth.
