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

Being of Arab descent, I understand how difficult it can be to seek mental health support in some communities, especially when cross-cultural conflicts can come into play. However, seeking support is the first step to healing.

As a clinician, I will never ignore race-based traumas & oppressive systems that may be impacting your mental health. I identify as a feminist, relational/cultural therapist who aims to form healing relationships and thinks critically about the impact of systems of power and oppression on people’s lives & emotional wellbeing. The relationship between client and clinician is one of the most important components of therapy, and I aim to create a safe, judgment-free space with each person who seeks my support, first and foremost.

EXPERIENCE
I received my Master of Social Work degree with a clinical concentration from The University of Pennsylvania. I am licensed through the Association of Social Work Boards. I have years of experience working with young adults and teenagers especially––working on a wide range of presenting issues together, including anxiety, depression, trauma, grief and loss, incarceration, family conflicts, race-based trauma, identity, and more.
