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.

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.

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.
