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.

Philip Grimes, Ph.D., LPC

Psychotherapy should be an unparalleled relationship where we will explore patterns that keep you stuck, learn practice skills to live more fully, develop increased self-awareness, and achieve your defined goals.

With over a decade’s experience, I’ve practiced in a variety of setting including community mental health, substance abuse, and inpatient psychiatric.  Utilizing traditional and holistic approaches including cognitive behavior therapy, insight-oriented, mindfulness, and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), I also enjoy incorporating spirituality, positive psychology, breath work, and philosophy into my work.  I pride myself on being interdisciplinary and to the tireless pursuit of knowledge to improve the lives of those who seek my counsel.

After graduating from Widener University with a degree in psychology, I received my master’s degree in clinical counseling psychology from La Salle University, and also hold a doctorate in spiritual counseling from the Institute of Metaphysical Humanistic Science.

As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I’ve treated people from all walks of life including adults, healthcare and law enforcement professionals, older adults, and older teens.

Rachel Lee-Nigsch, LCSW

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.
