Education

Education

I hold a Bachelor's degree in Rehabilitation and Human Services from Penn State University, and a Master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Immaculata University. 

 

I am a National Certified Counselor and Licensed Professional Counselor.

I am licensed to provide mental health counseling in the state of Pennsylvania.

Clinical Experience

I have worked in a variety of mental health settings, including Intensive Behavioral Health Services, Juvenile Justice Services, and Outpatient Services.  

I provide psychotherapy to adolescent and adult populations, struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, ADHD, adjustment disorders, bipolar disorder and relational difficulties.

There is nothing more important to me than the rapport I have with my clients.  While I integrate techniques from various theories based on specific client needs, I practice from a client-centered approach, in which I work to actively support and empower my clients in their healing.

 

​This allows my clients to begin feeling confident, strong, and secure. As a result, they start to see positive changes happen in their lives. Their relationships, friendships, health, finances, and work/school performance can begin to improve.  

Athlete Experience

I have always been a competitor at heart, from playing multiple sports growing up at the highest club levels, to playing Division I soccer at the collegiate level.  I have experienced the many stressors and mental health challenges that come with being an athlete, and therefore have a special interest in working with the athlete community.

I can relate with my clients because of these experiences and struggles, which gives my clients a better sense of connection.  My clients find that the way I combine my personal experience with my professional expertise oftentimes plays a key role in their success. 

 

I look forward to working with you,

Katie Ryan, LPC, NCC
