Jamie Coonan, LCSW

Philosophy of Care

Jamie Coonan is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, as well as being a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the Academy of Certified Social Workers (ACSW). She is also a Certified Grief Counseling Specialist. 

Jamie has over 3 decades of experience and has fine-tuned her skills as an empathetic listener who is able to help individuals and families struggling with a wide range of issues. She gives each person time to process their thoughts and feelings and then helps them devise strategies to move forward. When explaining her approach, Jamie says that she begins with the goal of building a trusting therapeutic relationship. “I want to meet you where you are, hear from you about what you are going through, ask you where you would like to go from here, and then help you identify both ways to get there and ways to stay there.” Jamie is an encourager who comes to a session with a combination of compassion and practical strategies for growth.    

She credits her balanced approach to her early training working with children and teens, who often didn’t have the words to explain their pain. Jamie has continued to hone her skills in working with young people and their families with struggles including ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Self-Harm and Cutting, Anxiety Disorders, Mood Disorders, and Depression to name a few. 

While she still has a special affinity for her young clients and their parents, Jamie has also spent many years expanding and developing her client base to include individuals from age 6 to 65 and beyond! She excels in working with clients of all ages in part because she knows how to work from the concrete and simple to the abstract and complex. Jamie has extensive experience working with individuals dealing with anxiety and depression, trauma, chronic health/chronic pain difficulties, grief, and bereavement, stress management, and relationship issues, including couple’s counseling.

Jamie completed her Master of Social Work from Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Jamie utilizes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Trauma-Focused CBT, Family Systems Therapy, Grief Therapy, Mindfulness-Based CBT, DBT, Biblical Therapy for those seeking Christian Counseling, and Strength-Based Therapy.

Lisa Cornelius, LCSW

My core belief: Healing and balance are not only possible, but are the result of counseling that respects every unique human experience while embarking on an introspective journey to uncover the unlimited potential and strengths of each person. While identifying together patterns of behavior that hinder balance, a new freedom and contentment is achieved.

I am passionate about providing a trusting therapeutic environment in which my clients will feel supported and confident in being who they are and expressing their innermost thoughts and emotion. I have been privileged to work with individuals from numerous ethnic, cultural, and religious backgrounds, addressing mental health concerns that are specific to each person’s life experience and interaction with the outside world. As a result, my cultural competency and an open-minded approach are central to my work as a therapist. My substantial experience working with the LGBTQ community, particularly with youth in the transitional process of sexuality, coming out and gender identity, has allowed me to develop a deep understanding of the interconnection of culture, religion and sexuality with environmental factors which informs one’s internal dialogue. As a therapist, my ultimate goal is to consistently provide a non-judgmental, open, and supportive therapeutic space in which each client can feel comfortable, safe and empowered as we embark on a journey together to facilitate a shift toward healing, growth and overall inner peace.

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Mood Disorders

  • LGBTQ Individuals/Couples/Family
  • Women's Issues

As a friend of Frank through all his dedication and motivation to higher education , that his commitment & dedication hadn't already been in progress .

Frank Yaeger

★★★★★
I first worked with Frank as a client. He was my personal trainer. He not only expanded my understanding and knowledge of physical health, but also gave me the confidence I need to far exceed my initial goals. As the role of a licensed professional counselor (LPC) I had invited Frank to be part of a three-person panel which included two Ph. D’s speaking on the topic of estrangement. The event went extremely well, and Frank’s contributions were very insightful, informative, and offered tangible methods to address estranged love ones. I highly recommend Frank as a therapist. He will provide unwavering empathy, ‘meet you where you are’ and provide the necessary interventions and compassion to have breakthroughs along your therapeutic journey
