Pascalina Delmas, LCSW – Works with Children, Teens, and Adults
This journey through life can be overwhelming, and sometimes asking for help can be difficult. I am so proud of you in taking this first step! You deserve a safe environment where you can be your authentic self, free from judgment to empower growth and healing.
I believe that therapy is a collaborative process. In our work together, my intent is to be genuine, provide compassion, empathy, and patience. My goal as your therapist is to de-stigmatize and bring awareness of the importance of mental health in diverse populations.
Issues we can address include depression, anxiety, trauma, family and cultural dynamics, job-related stress, and caregiver support. I have a Masters degree in Social Work from Temple University, as well as over 10 years of experience working with adults, adolescents and children in the foster care system, correctional, residential/group homes, and crisis management.
Jessica Tolbert (she/her) – Though I consider my therapeutic style eclectic and have a variety of skills to tailor to the needs of each individual, at its core I consider my orientation to be psychodynamic, trauma-informed, strengths-based, and cultural-relational. What this means is that my focus is less on diagnosis and pathology (what’s “wrong”) and more on individually working with clients to explore patterns to interpret and tell their own story, as they would like to see it. My goal is to support you in establishing feelings of safety, understanding, and connection. It means that I regard you as the expert on your life and acknowledge and celebrate your complexities. I believe above all that therapy is built on mutual trust and respect and I encourage questions and feedback throughout the process.
My areas of interest include trauma, grief and loss, and major life changes and transitions, as well as work with individuals who identify as disabled, chronically ill and/or experiencing mental illness. I hold a Master of Social Work from the University of Pennsylvania and a B.A. from Oberlin College and have worked with individuals experiencing anxiety, mood disorders, psychosis/psychotic disorders, brain injuries, chronic illness/disability, self-esteem concerns, family dynamics, survivors of domestic and sexual violence, histories of incarceration, and substance use/addiction. I have experience with populations from a variety of backgrounds, experiences, and ages in outpatient community behavioral health, inpatient psychiatric care, residential care, and inpatient substance use treatment.
It is also explicitly important to me as a clinician to acknowledge the ways structural and societal oppression relate to mental health through the intersection of a variety of lived experiences, including race, disability, gender, sexuality, and other identities. I strive to create a space that is supportive and gender-affirming for queer and trans* folks.
