Alexa Cruz, Resident in Counseling

Philosophy of Care

Alexa Cruz is a mental health professional who has worked in psychology for ten years. She began her journey working at Northwestern Human Services, known currently as Merekey, as a Therapeutic Staff Support for over a year. During this position, she worked with children and adolescents diagnosed with learning disabilities and mood dysregulation. After becoming a mother and staying home with her daughter for almost three years, she went back into the mental health field working in outpatient services for OMNI Health Services, Inc. located in Allentown, PA. Alexa had the position as mental health therapist and, then, an intake worker. She transitioned working as an Intensive Case Manager at Pennsylvania Mentor located in Bethlehem, PA where she supported client's in the community seeking mental health support, obtaining residency, and recovering from their mental health and/or substance abuse to transfer back into the community after inpatient hospitalization. This opportunity enlightened Alexa to take a different path from the mental health field to support individuals suffering from addiction. She obtained employment at Mount Pocono Medical Center and A Better Today, Inc. providing outpatient services to individuals and supporting them achieving recovery from addiction. Even though Alexa was supporting individuals struggling with addiction, that did not take away from her continuing to implement mental health therapy into her sessions with clients. Once Alexa graduated with her Master's Degree in the Arts in Clinical Psychology and working towards becoming a Licensed Professional Counselor, she obtained employment at KidsPeace-Residential Treatment Program working with children and adolescents who experienced trauma and suffered from mood disorders with suicidal and self-injurious behaviors. 

Alexa attended East Stroudsburg University, where she majored in Psychology. She was given the opportunity to complete her first internship at Unconditional Child Care located in Bethlehem, PA. After graduating from East Stroudsburg University, Alexa enrolled in the graduate program at Centenary University in 2010. She completed her practicum in a Private Practice located in Brodheadsville, PA and completed a graduate internship with a Licensed Professional Counselor in Effort, PA. Alexa took her time completing the graduate program due to employment and starting a family of her own. She enrolled in graduate classes in the year 2016 and completed the program with a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology in May 2020. 

Alexa believes client’s need to achieve their goals at their own pace and need to obtain insight within themselves to be successful in therapy. She takes pride in encouraging and supporting her clients to identify internal strengths, build self-confidence, understanding how their emotions affect thoughts, and provide clients with skills and tools needed to maintain a healthy and safe life.

Melanie E. Fisher, LCSW

Philosophy of Care

Melanie E. Fisher is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 26 years of post-graduate experience who has worked in the field of psychiatry and community mental health in both the public and private sectors for most of her career. Additionally, she has 14 years of experience working in public special education as a paraprofessional. Ms. Fisher sees people from every background and lifestyle imaginable. If you work with her, it's likely that you or a loved one struggle with depression and/or anxiety and that you are working together to address issues of stress management, coping, and/or dealing with difficult relationships. You may have no experience talking with a professional or you could have some previous exposure to the therapy setting; either way, if you feel that you could use some professional insights into mental health and recovery, then you would be highly likely to benefit from "talk therapy".

Ms. Fisher believes that it is truly amazing what positive, powerful insights and actions can be achieved through talk therapy. She customizes her approach with each patient based on their unique strengths and challenges. The foundation of her approach is what the psychologist Carl Rogers called "unconditional positive regard". This means that you are treated with dignity and respect. She sees her role with you as being judgment-free and believes that it is an honor to assist you in removing the current roadblocks that stand between you and happiness. Ms. Fisher's clinical approach is an eclectic combination of trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, mindfulness, and attachment theory rooted in both behavioral and psychoanalytic perspectives.

Ms. Fisher has found over the years that people need to be heard but also have a need to feel understood. Her way of truly understanding people is through the use of empathy. When empathy is used by a therapist, it becomes possible for the therapist to get a clear picture of what another person is feeling. If you are feeling invisible or misunderstood, Ms. Fisher encourages you to reach out and give therapy a try.

Sharon Graaf, PMHNP

Philosophy of Care

Sharon M. Graaf has been a Registered Nurse (RN) for 35 years and a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) for 6 of those years. Sharon specializes in attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and sleep issues. For the past 6 years she has been seeing primarily children and adolescents and also adult clients in an outpatient setting for psychiatric evaluations, diagnosis, and medication management.

Sharon completed her master’s and post master’s degrees from Wilkes University. She is certified by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). She began her career working as a registered nurse at a long-term state psychiatric hospital and a state prison. Her career path seemed to align with seeing patients that required mental health intervention. She acquired much mental health experience at those jobs and that is the reason she pursued the psychiatric focus for her higher education.

During the psychiatric evaluation Sharon seeks a thorough understanding of your symptoms, past and present, in order to identify potential causes, including any medical or biological factors that could have caused the issues you are having. She will discuss past medications that you have tried and therapies that have worked and not worked for you. She will discuss potential side effects if medication is prescribed, and your feelings about taking medications. She will provide an appointment that is relaxed and low-key so you can remember all that you would like to discuss. She will listen attentively. Sometimes the tension of having a mental health appointment with a provider causes an enormous amount of stress. Sharon believes that building a trusting rapport with her clients is a very important part of success in treatment.

Avis Pitkow, PsyD, LPC

Philosophy of Care

Dr. Pitkow earned her Master’s Degree and her Doctoral Degree in Clinical Psychology from Immaculata University. She has a diverse background having worked with outpatient, inpatient, substance abuse and dual diagnosis populations. In addition to working in the field for close to 20 years, Dr. Pitkow brings essential life experiences to the work. Dr. Pitkow believes that the most important aspect of therapy is the relationship established between the client and the therapist, without which very little is accomplished. To that end she aims to create a safe and warm environment where the relationship can develop. She states she is not a “one size fits all” type therapist, therefore integrative, psychodynamic, eclectic and a touch of CBT would be good descriptors of her style. She believes in meeting clients where they are and going from there and is particularly fond of working with people who are in early sobriety having difficulty learning to “live life on life’s terms.“  She appreciates working with people who have felt stuck and are ready to do the work to make some changes. It is rewarding to be there with them to assist in that process.

Lora Henne, LPC

“Is the glass half empty or half full?” Life is all about how we perceive it. Our perception is built from the interactions or lack of, with others. Interactions force us to make choices. And, we always have a choice.

The options may not be what you would like them to be, but there is always one choice better than the other. What will you choose?

If you are reading this, then you are contemplating the choice of a counselor that you want to choose with whom to work. Consider how you want to feel during and after session. Heard and understood is my goal for when I meet with clients. Being able to talk, without being judged, and to feel heard is a cathartic experience that all should have in their life.

I have over five years of providing therapy for individuals, couples, and families. It is my goal to provide the best services to my clients. I have worked with a wide array of issues with much client satisfaction and success.

Lynsey Reiss, LPC

“A person is a fluid process, not a fixed and static entity; a flowing river of change, not a block of solid material; a continually changing constellation of potentialities, not a fixed quantity of traits.”
― Carl R. Rogers, On Becoming a Person: A Therapist's View of Psychotherapy

Lynsey holds the belief that change is fundamental to who we are as human beings, and sometimes the changes we need to make are difficult and overwhelming. She also believes that we inherently have the answers to our questions locked inside ourselves, and sometimes we need therapeutic support to reach them. As a clinician, Lynsey’s role is to help you develop more awareness into your insights; utilizing your strengths to help you become the best version of yourself. If you have been feeling stuck, Lynsey will work with you to explore the barriers keeping you from achieving your goals.

Lynsey has a MA in Counseling Psychology from Delaware Valley University, and has been a practicing clinician for three years, primarily working with addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders. She has experience working with individuals who have mood disorders, anxiety disorders, schizoaffective disorder, schizophrenia, substance use disorders, trauma, adjustment disorders; and those who may struggle with problems of self-esteem, loss, and stress management.

  Lynsey’s overall approach is humanistic, as she believes you are the expert of your life experiences, and you will be leading the therapeutic journey. She also utilizes a multicultural approach in counseling, as individual experiences, cultural dynamics, and worldviews are important to understanding how best to proceed with therapeutic interventions and treatment. Lynsey enjoys working with adult individuals of all backgrounds, abilities, and is LGBTQIA+ friendly. 

Additionally, Lynsey utilizes CBT and has a Level I certification in Rational Living Therapy (RLT). If you are someone who struggles with negative thought patterns, CBT and RLT can be of great benefit to you. Lynsey’s goal as your therapist is to work with you on identifying goals, and developing a therapeutic approach that is tailored to your needs. Whether you have experience in counseling, or this is your first time, Lynsey will strive to create a safe space for your growth process.

An added message from Anissa: Besides our everyday stressors, COVID-19 has disrupted life as we know it, and compounded by the social and political unrest that dominate the headlines, it can lead to feelings of fear, confusion, sleeplessness, irritability, defensiveness, isolation, grief, and even despair.  If this sounds familiar, then you are having a completely normal reaction to an abnormal situation. No adult, child, or family, no matter what professional or educational level, is unaffected by this crisis, and each person adjusts in their own way.  I will help support you with pandemic-related concerns, either in person, or through online telehealth sessions for added peace of mind, and I encourage you to never feel silly about reaching out, as no symptom or concern is insignificant, and deserves to be addressed.

Unlocking my potential

★★★★★
Through my sessions with Lora I’ve been able to stop doubting myself and my capabilities. My life has changed drastically for the better through her teachings and spot-on feedback.

I feel as though I’ve been running with a ton of weight on my shoulders and Lora was able to guide me on how to liberate myself from all of these burdens and run freely! Thank you Lora, don’t know where I’d be without ya!
