Welcome! We’re so glad you’re here. 



Founded in 2013, Emerge Wellness is an LGBTQ+ owned and operated therapy practice with a mission to facilitate profound healing and personal growth. 

Our practice is rooted in the principles of safety, choice, trustworthiness, and empowerment, ensuring a respectful and supportive therapeutic environment. We recognize the connection between systems of oppression and mental health. 

All of our therapists are a part of the queer community with a variety of intersectional identities, so you don’t have to explain your gender identity, sexuality, or relationship style to us.

Our therapists are trained to support your holistic wellness by taking a trauma-informed, mind-body approach to your care.

We consider it both an honor and privilege to serve the diverse needs of the queer community! 

PLEASE NOTE: We are now accepting new clients for virtual services only and do not accept insurance. Sliding scale available. Must reside in Pennsylvania.


Individual Therapy

Some aspects of therapy we specialize in:
  • Exploring your sexual identity, including but not limited to: lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer,  asexual, or aromantic.
  • Exploring your gender, including but not limited to: transgender, gender non-conforming, non-binary, gender fluid, or agender.
  • Coming out to family, friends, work, or partners.
  • Exploring societal, institutionalized, and internalized oppressions associated with being LGBTQIA+.
  • Preparing medical gender transition, whether your own or a loved one’s; includes writing letters of support for medical transition.
  • Processing and healing from trauma, whether from childhood or more recent experiences.
  • Healing and/or developing healthy relationships and communication skills.
  • Supporting you through personal and/or professional life transitions and changes.
  • Helping you beyond symptoms of depression and anxiety so you can enjoy life again (or for the first time!).

Relational Therapy

Couples, Triads & Family Therapy

Relational Therapy is focused on the dynamics between two or more people. In couples therapy we offer sessions for people who are looking to better understand one another and create more of what you want in your partnership. In this safe environment, you can explore your challenges more openly, find new ways to compassionately relate to one another, and increase the health of your relationship. We welcome polyamorous and kinky-identified couples, relationship groups of more than two, or any form of open or non-traditional relationship formats.


Our Difference

LGBTQ Owned & Operated

We are an LGBTQ+ owned and operated business; as such, our practitioners are all LGBTQ+ identified.

A mind body approach.

We treat the whole-person rather than just attending to the mind. By attending to the mind and body, we help our clients experience a sense of deep safety within themselves.

Our therapists believe in continued education.

All of our therapists engage in ongoing continuing education to ensure that we offer the absolute best care.
