Meet Our Counselors

Amy Pascarella, M.S., LPC, LAC

Amy is a Licensed Professional Counselor who finds many people are struggling with more than they can handle on their own. Whether it is one particular stressor, illness, family troubles, or just the combination of several things, life can just be overwhelming. Amy helps people identify new ways to think through problems, redefine what they want in their life, and challenge ideas that may be holding them back. Amy uses a client-centered approach guided by her training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and influenced by her work with Mindfulness. Through a variety of approaches, she meets clients where they are, and together they develop a plan to help decrease the chaos, manage stress, and balance life’s demands. 

Amy received her B.A. in Psychology with minors in Forensic Psychology and Women’s Studies from Canisius College in Buffalo, NY.

She received her M.S. and Post Master’s Certificate in Clinical Community Counseling from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD.

Chelsea

Chelsea Goldman, Ed.S, LPC

Chelsea Goldman is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). She uses a client-centered approach to therapy, which means her clients actually guide the session. Chelsea interweaves the evidence-based practices of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to allow clients to regain control of their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. She understands that as we go through life, we encounter events that change the way we think or behave. It can be very difficult to return to comfortable ways of thinking, but she is here to help guide you.

Chelsea also uses mindfulness to foster a comfortable environment, while the client learns new skills to cope. Chelsea takes a special interest in Anxiety, Depression, PTSD, and life transitions. Her clients include adolescents, young adults, other individuals, couples, and families.

Chelsea earned both her undergraduate degree in Psychology and her Master’s Plus in Counseling Education from the University of South Carolina.
