Jennifer Polen, LCSW

I am a firm believer that therapy is for everyone. Therapists aren’t magicians. We are simply trained to use and share a broad “tool box” of skills for managing life’s problems. Therapy is hard work, but should result in you building your skills and capacity to manage whatever life has thrown your way.  

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with extensive experience working with individuals and families of all ages. I identify as a Cognitive-Behavioral Therapist, but as a Social Worker I frame all of my work by exploring how individuals exist within their family and community systems. 

I am a compassionate and caring therapist who has worked on the “business side” of behavioral health for years. As such, you will find me to be a warm, easy to talk to clinician with a results orientation. I have significant experience treating individuals with trauma-exposure, attachment issues, eating disorders, and physical symptoms stemming from emotional states. I will see adults and adolescents for individual sessions, and provide family therapy for young people 14 and below.

I'm a licensed professional counselor in the state of Pennsylvania as well as a registered art therapist. I earned a master's degree in art therapy and counseling from Drexel University and have practiced in a number of mental health settings. I have experience working with clients who present with diverse clinical issues, including depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder and substance use. I believe psychotherapy is a collaborative effort, in which the therapist supports client strengths and insights as a means of eliciting change. I intend to offer compassionate, affirming care which provides opportunities to challenge old patterns and to build new interpersonal skills. I also offer arts-based interventions if that feels like something which would be helpful for you (and no, you don't have to be an artist!).

I look forward to working with you!

Maurice Denton, LPC

Hello! My name is Maurice Denton.

I began my study of psychology in 11th grade when given the choice between it and German. While German is an interesting language, I think I made the right choice. Since then, I graduated with a BA in Psychology from Eastern University and then a Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Regent University. I’ve been employed in the helping field for most of my working life. I’ve continued in this field because I love being a support for people as they work through life challenges, and having overcome my share of major difficulties, I’m not afraid to sit with you and work through heavy issues. I consider the people that I work with to be participants, not only clients, because we’re working together to find pathways to problem solving. You’re in the driver seat and your goals will be our focus.

I believe in taking a person centered approach to therapy, which sees my participants as autonomous, capable of changing their lives in positive ways, and moving toward their full potential. Since being trained as a Clinical Mental Health Counselor, I have walked with participants through the most severe cases of anxiety, depression, Bi-Polar disorder, Schizophrenia, and other chronic life interruptions.  I always consider it an honor and a privilege when my clients share with me, the life experiences that have brought them to their current place, whatever that may be. I believe that you are a valuable individual, no matter what you’re dealing with, and that you don’t have to carry the weight of your concerns alone.

Alexis Kilduff, LPC

Alexis earned her bachelors degree in Psychology from Rutgers University in 2007 and her masters degree in Mental Health Counseling and Behavioral Medicine from the Boston University School of Medicine in 2009.

Whether it be in a school, community and home based work, or in an outpatient office; Alexis has committed herself to meeting each individual where they’re at mentally and emotionally. Whether it is working through a difficult life transition, chronic anxiety or depression, grief, body image and self esteem, eating disorders or anything else that is keeping you from living the life you want to; she believes in working with you and tailoring treatment to meet your unique needs.  

Alexis feels strongly about “buying in” to therapy and working as a team to overcome whatever it is each person is dealing with. She believes deeply in connections and her warm approach will help to put you at ease so you can get the support and care that is right for you.

It is my privilege to join clients on this journey. 

My areas of specialization include trauma, depression, anxiety, anger management, trauma, healthy sexual development, relationship discord, conflict resolution, loss and grief, and effective communication styles. 

My counseling style is eclectic as I acknowledge the unique characteristics that are present within the many approaches to therapy. This allows for the use of the most appropriate tools as the therapeutic relationship evolves and allows adaption to honor the distinct and dynamic human being.. Many of the hours I have spent in professional development have been focused on cognitive behavioral treatment approaches and dialectical behavioral therapy.

I work with a variety of issues that include but are not limited to depression, anxiety, self-esteem, grief & loss, mood and personality disorders, trauma and PTSD, and have a specialty working with those with eating disorders. 

I use an existential and humanistic approach to therapy, and pride myself on helping facilitate a safe therapeutic space for clients. I believe that when you establish a sense of safety you can then start moving forward in exploring what it means to be your authentic self, as well as challenge patterns of behaviors that have been ineffective in allowing you to live the life you want. I use methods such as CBT, DBT, mindfulness, and art therapy in my sessions. We will create and review goals together in each session to ensure that we are helping you move in the direction that you want.

Keith Coleman, LMHC

Philosophy of Care

*Keith is licensed in the state of Florida and Pennsylvania*

In today's society reaching out to a therapist is a great step towards future success. I have worked intensely with anxiety/depression, irregular mood, difficulty sleeping, addictions, relational problems and grief/loss among other issues for the duration of my career. So often we isolate our true selves and potential for the benefit of those around us by hiding behind the proverbial mask, or wearing the superhero cape. This leads to an internal struggle and often to issues in our personal lives along with those who are closest to us.

We all need someone to listen, challenge, and provide encouragement for us to not only improve our quality of life, but stay on the right path. Taking off those masks, and letting down our walls can be painful, yet in turn are the first steps to healing.

I provide a peaceful, non-judgmental demeanor helping to encourage motivation, healthy change, and most importantly a better overall quality of life. I believe in a client-centered approach to therapy, helping to alleviate the fears, and providing the tools needed to healthily facilitate the change you may be looking for.

Thomas McDowell, LPC

Philosophy of Care

TJ McDowell is a Licensed Professional Counselor in Pennsylvania whose primary focus in the counseling relationship is providing a safe, consistent rapport with his clients. He seeks to bring compassion & trust into the counseling relationship and into helping clients with stress management, anxiety, depression, relationship conflicts, processing life changes, trauma, and substance use disorder & recovery. TJ has a Masters in Pastoral Counseling from Neumann University and a Masters in Business Administration from Alvernia University.

TJ believes that successful counseling is often a custom blend of two ingredients. First, there is something simply healing and validating about being able to be heard. The more time spent in conversation the better, even if it is just free-flowing and indiscreet. Second, there usually comes a point where some practical work can be done. This might require setting goals, problem solving, learning some new information, etc... These moments sometimes come with worksheets or assignments. TJ seeks to collaborate with his clients to find a balance that works for them.

TJ practices principles of "radical non judgment" and "unconditional positive regard" toward his clients. Counseling does not always have to be about fixing or finding what's 'wrong,' rather nurturing and growing on what's right. He looks forward to building a counseling relationship that helps empower your inner ability to heal and thrive.

Jill Lamar, LPC

Philosophy of Care

Jill is a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Pennsylvania. She completed a Bachelor of Arts in Economics at Arizona State University, and received a Master of Arts in Counseling from Dallas Theological Seminary. Jill draws on the wisdom of her life experience, a drive to pursue the truth in each client’s story, and a passionate desire to see the broken restored in working with her clients. She has a God-given ability to listen, hear, and interpret what her clients tell her (both verbally and nonverbally), and is both process- and goal-driven, unafraid to be direct in showing her clients the way forward. It hurts her heart to see her clients deceived, believing lies about themselves (or lies they’ve been told about themselves); reluctant to consider a change for fear of doing something wrong. 

She enjoys helping her clients explore new coping skills, like erecting appropriate boundaries in their relationships, or learning how to better manage their anxiety or anger. She takes great pleasure in seeing clients discover new things about and strengths in themselves. She has worked with the blind, the homeless and at-risk populations for more than a dozen years, and is adept at showing clients how to carefully work through the perceived wreckage of their lives to craft a more hopeful narrative that provides them with a renewed sense of purpose and confidence. 

Jill’s specialties include faith-based counseling, helping clients with addictions and other compulsive behaviors, dual-diagnosis, anxiety and depression, grief, couples therapy, and working with adolescents adjusting to the challenges of life and the changes they bring, as well as academic underperformance. It should be noted that although she takes therapy quite seriously, Jill’s sense of humor is legendary, and often creates an inimitable, meaningful and warm connection between her and her clients.

Myriam Rosefort, LCSW

Hello and welcome. Thank you for stopping by. 

My name is Myriam Rosefort and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I earned my Master’s degree at Stony Brook University in New York. I have provided services in both New York and Pennsylvania. 

Providing services in both the state of New York and Pennsylvania; I’ve retained 11 years of service assisting children and their families. In my work experience of 20 years in the human service field; I have gained my experience in a variety of settings which includes outpatient mental health facilities, in homes, schools, residential programs, and within the community.  

My counseling style is to take on a holistic and eclectic approach. I’m a firm believer that it is important to meet clients where they are at and to be culturally sensitive. I take great pride in assuring my clients that this is a safe place where they can vent, express themselves, feel validated, and not be judged. I believe in taking on a positive approach and focusing on the client’s strength to give them a since of empowerment and encouragement. My therapeutic style is flexible and it’s not a one size fits all. I approach each family, couple, or individual with warmth, compassion, respect, and openness while working together to collaboratively to help with meeting target goals. 

I have worked with individuals, families, children, and adults coping with a variety of issues including ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), autism, oppositional defiant disorder, depression, attachment disorders, personality disorders, parental conflicts, anxiety, trauma, abuse, struggle with adjustment, struggle with coping with caring for a special needs child, and a wide range of problems. 

I have been trained and have worked in a range of modalities including client centered therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, gestalt therapy, narrative therapy, solution focused, rational emotive therapy, psychoanalytic therapy, family marital therapy, family systems, and trauma therapy.  

All too often people are afraid to face their pain because they are often told not to feel angry or sad. Until we learn to feel, to acknowledge, to cope and start the healing of our unresolved pain and struggles, we remain stagnant in discovering the best versions of ourselves.  There is strength in making the choice to seek out help, to start the healing process, and you deserve it. I am open and ready to help.

Alison Borden, LPC

The path I took to work as a counselor at Thriveworks is a rather straightforward one. I have had an interest in helping others with feelings or emotions since as far back as I can remember. When family or teachers would notice this interest, they would tell me that I may want to look into psychology.  It wasn’t until high school when I was able to take a class in the subject. What I learned in that class ignited my interest in the field and so I chose my major before even applying to colleges. Before graduating from Chestnut Hill College with a bachelor’s degree in psychology, I had already enrolled in LaSalle’s master’s in professional counseling psychology program. Since graduating in 2012, I have provided treatment to a variety of populations in the city of Philadelphia.

I specialize in cognitive behavioral therapy and family therapy with a focus on communication. I have worked with children, adolescents, and adults, in the home, school, and office setting. I have extensive experience working with people with autism and Asperger’s syndrome. I highly enjoy working with people who are experiencing anxiety and depression and trauma-informed care is paramount to my practice. I am an LGBTQIA+ friendly counselor and welcome the opportunity to be an agent of change and healing to any interested client.

Dr. Allena Moncrief

Greetings, my name is Dr. Allena M. Moncrief and I have been providing therapeutic services to clients in the Philadelphia area since 2010.  I obtained my PhD from Drexel University in the field of Couple and Family Therapy in 2017.  As a psychotherapist, I understand the decision to enter psychotherapy can be extremely challenging for some individuals.  Thus, I strive to meet individuals where they are in the therapeutic process.   This process involves helping individuals explore the root of their difficulties/road blocks and assisting them with creating a roadmap that will lead to a more fulfilling and enjoyable life.  I am a trauma- informed therapist with specialization in the areas of: self-esteem, marital and familial conflict, sexual abuse, transgenerational trauma, divorce, adolescent challenges, and parenting.  I offer services to adults, adolescents, couples, and families.  As an African American woman, I have a grave understanding of the trials and tribulations individuals of color face in today's society.  I believe race, ethnicity, culture, and social economical factors play a pivotal role in how individuals live their daily lives and I invite discussion of such factors in the therapeutic process.

Rachel Lee-Nigsch, LCSW, Med

In this day and age it is so hard to be seen and heard, to know if we are “normal” and “fit in with society.”  If you are having issues navigating troubled thoughts, unmotivated to reach your goals, concerns with substance abuse, or relationship/ marriage problems, I would love the opportunity to work with you.  I meet clients where they are and identify what concerns have brought you to therapy. We come up with a plan together to help you reach your goals in therapy. I have experience working with individual clients, couples, adolescents and young children. I use multiple interventions and identify those specifically to meet each clients needs. 

A little about myself, my education concentrated on counseling and I earned a Masters in Social work and Education in Human Sexuality.  Where I focused on identified sexual functioning issues, and working with relationship problems with couples primarily concentrating on sexual concerns. In addition my education focused on working with the LGBTQIA populations.   I worked extensively with clients who have experienced trauma, PTSD, parenting and issues with children. I have experience running women’s groups, sex education, early recovery, and couples groups. My theoretical orientation is psycho dynamic, ego psych, family systems therapy.  I use interventions such as CBT, DBT, motivational interviewing, trauma informed and strength based. I currently hold my LCSW in the state of PA and have been working and living with my family in the Center City area since 2015.
