Dr. Gill’s therapeutic work is informed by the patterns of behavior and problems his patients experience as they manifest within the therapeutic relationship. Sources of joy in life are simple.

Clinical Supervisors

David C. Fales

Hello! My name is David. I am a passionate and skilled Licensed Professional Counselor who considers it a privilege to offer help and hope to anyone who is facing challenges in life’s journey. In doing so, I believe that it is so very important to meet each person wherever they happen to be in that moment of their lives. I also believe that a beneficial experience in therapy is built upon a foundation of trust, acceptance, openness and a willingness to grow. From that strong foundation, the therapeutic process should bring about a healthy balance of both support and challenge, always moving forward and into the enhancement of the life experience. Whether that journey be taken in long strides or inch-by-inch, what is most important of all is finding each day a little more fulfilling than the last. I believe that this can be accomplished through focusing together upon the building of empowerment, healthy decision-making and mastery over one’s own life.

I am privileged to work with people who are living with anxiety and depression, as well as those who are experiencing challenges related to trauma, abuse and a variety of life transitions. While I particularly enjoy working with adolescents and young adults who are coping with any number of the unique challenges facing them today, I also enjoy working within a broad range of counseling topics and client age groups.

I have been blessed to work in this field for over 25 years and have done so in a variety of settings, including outpatient centers, residential treatment facilities, foster care programs, schools, and more. I have worked extensively with survivors of trauma and have worked to build systems of trauma-informed care in a variety of settings. I use a number of different treatment modalities to ensure that an individualized approach is always taken in assisting each person with reaching their full potential.
It is my humble privilege to serve you in your pursuit of happiness and fulfillment in life’s journey!

Courtney Gerenser

With over 15 years of experience working in an inpatient setting with children, adolescents, adults, and families I am a seasoned social worker.  I believe the counseling relationship is built on trust, which leads to growth and change.  I will meet you where you are and together, we will embark on this counseling journey.  Together we will work towards your identified goals through communication, self-care, and utilization of healthy coping strategies.  

My goal is to help you live a more fulfilling and satisfying life.  Therapy will be collaborative, and strengths based.  Through a combination of client-centered and systems-based approaches we will work on life changes and symptom reduction.

I graduated from Wake Forest University having studied Religion and Psychology before moving to Hawaii where I taught environmental education at a YMCA to grade school aged children.  I was trained in ropes course facilitation and helped develop a summer camp for Hawaii natives and beyond.  Watching children and adolescents gain self-confidence and independence contributed to my desire to facilitate these in a more structured setting.  I attended Bryn Mawr College where I graduated with a Master’s in Social Services. 

I believe in transparency, honesty, and forgiveness and bring these beliefs to my practice.  I look forward to starting this journey together.

KayLee Taylor

I believe in a client-centered approach.  This means that I trust you as the expert; and know that in a safe environment you will be able to heal.  My experience in the healthcare industry has taught me that a provider can have extensive knowledge, but if they are unable to listen to the client, they cannot provide good care.  In my study of trauma, I have learned about the different mechanisms the body utilizes to heal itself, we will work on
re-connecting with those systems. 


In the last ten years I have worked with clients in a variety of settings; outpatient, in-home, intensive outpatient, legal systems, clinic, and emergency room.  I have also worked with a variety of needs; anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, autism, attachment disorder, other trauma related disorders, suicidal and self-injury thoughts/behaviors.

In working with clients, I have seen so much resiliency.  I have witnessed so much strength that often goes unnoticed by the individual them self.  I find that once a client is able to identify their strength, they are able to identify their solution.  I would love to be a part of your healing journey. 

Safety is a priority for my clients.  Creating a safe environment is a priority to me, regardless of; orientation, identity, race, culture, or religion/spirituality. 

Caroline Welty

Ms. Welty received her MS degree in Clinical & Counseling Psychology from Chestnut Hill College. With over 10 years in the field, she specializes in a variety of issues including substance use, co-occurring disorders, domestic violence, PTSD, anxiety, and mood disorders. Ms. Welty works with individuals (ages 14 through 85), couples, families, and groups. In addition to being a Licensed Professional Counselor, Ms. Welty is also a Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor (CAADC) and a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP). She uses CBT, REBT, 12-Step, solution-focused, mindfulness, and psychodynamic therapeutic modalities.

There is no “one size fits all” treatment. I believe everyone works towards and achieves recovery differently. I get to know clients and collaboratively develop individualized treatment using trauma-informed and person-centered approaches, and introduce other modalities to meet the needs of the client.

Before any other work can occur in counseling, an atmosphere of respect and safety must be developed within the relationship. You are more than your symptoms, more than the problems you face or the struggles you encounter. Everyone needs support sometimes, and my goal is to provide my clients with a safe place for hope and healing.

Paul Basenfelder

I love being a therapist, and I have several beliefs about therapy that embody my therapeutic philosophy. First, I believe that the therapist-client relationship is sacred, and that only meaningful therapeutic work can occur through a strong alliance built on trust and free of shame and judgment.

Secondly, I believe that therapy is a portal to healing wounds that loneliness and isolation worsen.

Thirdly, I believe it is important to support and guide clients in living lives that are true to their own
values and reflective of their authentic selves. Lastly, I agree with Socrates when he said, “An unexamined life is not worth living,” and that therapy is a golden opportunity for clients to explore and uncover all aspects of themselves as a means to adding richness and meaning to their lives.
As an eclectic practitioner that mainly uses CBT, Psychodynamic and Humanistic modalities, I work with a range of issues for individual therapy clients, including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, gambling
disorder, substance use/abuse, chronic illness, career issues, existential issues, relationship issues, etc. I also enjoy working with couples, and my approach to couples counseling is to treat each person fairly by
providing equal support and accountability and to heal ruptures to the couple’s connection through bolstering communication and fostering mutual understanding of one another’s needs, feelings and values.

Adam Bidas

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in both PA and NJ and a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC) with a Master’s of Education in Mental Health Counseling from William Paterson University and a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Scranton. During my internship, I worked as a substance abuse counselor intern conducting group therapy and individual therapy in an IOP/PHP setting. I had the experience to work with primarily court mandated clients. I have also worked in an inpatient substance abuse setting where I also conducted groups facilitated lectures on recovery topics and provided induvial therapy and case management. Following this position, I found myself in outpatient mental where I gained the most clinical experience working with a diverse population and treating a variety of issues. I have worked with children as young as 10, adolescents and adults up to age 65.

My areas of focus are substance abuse disorders, dual diagnosis, grief and loss, anxiety disorders, mood disorders, life transitions, employment stress, trauma, and self-esteem issues. My approach when treating all clients is tailored to the client. I tend to be primarily cognitive based in my approach but I will often bring in other approaches from person centered, solutions focused, or REBT.

My approach is direct and authentic within the therapeutic relationship which I believe fosters change within clients. I also believe that the use of empathy is the cornerstone to building a successful therapeutic relationship.

I believe nothing is more important than an individual’s story. Your story, and the relationships it consists of, have a deep impact on your life and make up who you are, and who you become. I believe this is true for every individual, young and old. My experience as a trauma therapist has shown me the resilience of human beings and how meaningful their stories are. Through mutual trust, understanding, and the processing of your emotional experiences, we will begin to see change and embark on a pathway to healing that is comfortable and effective for you.

“The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.” -Carl Rodgers.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor focused on creating a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental environment in which I collaborate with clients to pursue their goals of change, self-discovery, acceptance or understanding. I believe that everyone can benefit from a relationship that is authentic, curious, non-judgmental, honest, and provides a space supportive of growth and self-discovery. This is the environment I seek to cultivate with clients in my practice. I draw from psychodynamic, person-centered, feminist, and cognitive behavioral theories to assist clients in becoming aware their own resilience and strengths, develop adaptive coping skills for the challenges they may be experiencing, and rediscover their passion, motivation, and sense of self. Our mind is our most powerful tool, and we can use this tool to help us change for the better. 

I have experience working with adolescents, young adults and adults dealing with trauma, eating disorders, body image concerns, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, substance use disorders, life transitions, and personality disorders. In addition to traditional talk therapy, I offer a mindfulness-based approach, supporting clients using meditation, journaling, and movement to explore their emotional experience and access internal resources, helping them to develop tools that they can implement both in and out of sessions. I incorporate mind-body techniques including progressive muscle relaxation, mindfulness and meditation, and guided imagery.

Samantha Dunnum

Hi there, my name is Sam and I am a licensed clinical social worker. I have my BA in Psychology from Temple University and my MSS from Bryn Mawr College Graduate School of Social Work and Social Research.

Ellie Ettman

With a passion to hear and a heart to understand, the goal of my practice is to help you. I will be there to listen, to guide, and to ask you the questions that need to be asked. I aim to do this while guiding you towards a road of healing, helping, and hoping that your tomorrow is even just a little bit better than your today.

As a practicing, licensed therapist for the past 14 years, I have encouraged and supported many people to become their best selves. I have worked with people who were on very different journeys; with extensive experience with those who struggle with anxiety, depression, those who have experienced some kind of trauma in their life, who have self-esteem issues, grief and loss struggles, as well as substance abuse issues. My style of therapy draws from modalities such as cognitive- behavioral therapy and motivational interviewing, while I emphasize active listening and the implementation of a person centered, strengths- based approach. I will work hard meet you where you are and help you get to where you want to be, assisting you to find the tools you need to do so. While there is a clinical side to all of what we do, my focus is to help you obtain what you need and desire. It takes a lot to seek out a therapist; I am aware of this and I will honor the fact that you have chosen to do so.

Lastly, I attended Penn State University with a concentration in adolescent psychology. I have since earned my master’s degree in clinical counseling from Arcadia University and have been working as a licensed therapist since that time. Therapy is a collaborative process, and I hope to be able to work with you on your journey of becoming your best self and living your best life.

Stephanie Fudge

“When the other person is hurting, confused, troubled, anxious, alienated, terrified; or when he or she is doubtful of self-worth, uncertain as to identity, then understanding is called for. The gentle and sensitive companionship of an empathic stance provides illumination and healing. In such situations deep understanding is, I believe, the most precious gift one can give to another.” – Carl Rogers

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor that follows a strength-based, client-centered approach. As a therapist, I believe it is important to be genuine in all aspects, while being able to utilize an eclectic approach in order to fit the needs of those seeking guidance.

After graduating from Marywood University with a masters degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, I have worked in both outpatient and inpatient settings. I have experience working with those who struggle with anxiety disorders, depressive disorders, and chemical dependency. I also have experience in working on grief and loss, self-esteem, assertiveness, and relationships (couples, family, etc.).

I find that it is extremely important to strive to maintain a trusting relationship with all clients while providing them with a safe and enjoyable environment. It is my hope to be as helpful as possible.

Allison Gerstley

Are you feeling stuck, unmotivated, or lost? Perhaps wondering how to climb out of the dark hole that anxiety, depression, or addiction has you feeing trapped in? Self-exploration is the bravest journey one can take when you are lost in these feelings. The overwhelming pace of life may increase these unpleasant feelings, and I support you in taking the courageous step to collaborate with someone to improve satisfaction, happiness, and confidence in your life. Together, we will work towards developing healthy coping skills, behaviors, and thought patterns to enhance your ability to cope with daily life. You and I will work together to address these difficult emotions, increase confidence, and satisfaction in your life.

I graduated from Rosemont College with a Master’s in counseling psychology and went on to obtain my license in Professional Counseling, and National Certification as a Counselor. I specialize in treating addiction, mood disorders, teaching coping skills, grief and loss, and general life changes. I am an eclectic therapist, utilizing therapeutic approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Based approaches, Motivational Interviewing (MI), and skills from Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). I am excited to help you on your healing journey!

Dan Kauder

I graduated with a BA in Psychology from the University of Delaware in 2008, an MA in Clinical Counseling from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology in 2010., and I’ve held my Pennsylvania LPC since 2013. I’ve worked in many different settings, from an inpatient hospital of last resort (Logansport State Hospital, IN) to community mental health centers (PATH, Philadelphia PA) before coming to work at J Snyder. I’ve worked with people from all walks of life going through challenges ranging from depression and anxiety, from life transitions to complex trauma, LGBTQIA+ concerns, and active psychosis; and through all of these experiences I’ve come to the following conclusion- that change is difficult, but it is entirely within a person’s reach to improve their lives. All I’m here to do is help you learn alternate ways of thinking and treating yourself- with the love and respect that you’ve deserved.
I approach therapy from two perspectives simultaneously: a cognitive-behavioral standpoint, for learning coping skills and emotional processing techniques, and also from a more existential approach, to help you figure out where you want these new skills to ultimately take you. I do my best to keep therapy as simple and straightforward as possible, as I believe that the difficulty in change lies not with complexity, but with consistency; a treatment plan that is easy to understand and implement4523, is more likely to result in positive changes for a person’s life and sense of wellbeing.

“Significant positive personality change does not occur except in a relationship.” – Carl Rogers

You have exhausted your resources trying to solve your current challenges and are seeking outside counsel, maybe for the first time.  It feels daunting, seeking out a stranger to share what has been going on and wondering where to start.

You come with strengths like perseverance – it has gotten you this far and you continue to seek answers.  You are curious and willing to ask questions.  You have courage, to share what is happening and to come as you are.  You are someone who appreciates learning and is open to new perspectives because as Einstein said – No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.”

I have had the honor of witnessing individuals transform their lives in spite of significant challenges to achieve a more fulfilling life while working with me – overcoming debilitating depression and/or anxiety to return to the workforce, courageously facing years long health issues they avoided and remediating them over a period of months, gaining financial and emotional independence in a dysfunctional family system, repairing relationships with loved ones that were damaged for years because they were willing to make concerted changes in how they view and respond to others. 

I gained this experience working in several outpatient settings where the majority of individuals were diagnosed with co-occurring disorders.  I believe in the healing power of listening and the ability of therapy to transform lives.  It is the place where I can be my authentic self and my passion for my work is evident – which allows others to feel safe to examine what they could not on their own.

Erika Pankratz

Seeking help when in emotional distress can be challenging and isolating, and I hope to bring comfort and relief to that process. It can feel like no one understands what you might be experiencing, or may even be difficult to understand your own emotions. In processing those emotions, thoughts, or experiences, you can work towards achieving clarity, insight, and move forward towards acceptance and change. My initial goal in therapy is to make you feel comfortable and to build a therapeutic and healing relationship. I will seek to empathically understand your individual experiences.

I believe that processing underlying trauma and past experiences are keys to the healing process. So much time in our life is spent awash in anxiety about the future or past, and my goal is to give you a space for growth in order to enjoy these present moments and work towards an actualization of yourself and your own fulfillment. I believe that no one chooses to experience emotional distress, and genuinely that everyone wants relief from what they are experiencing. Environment and experience have contributed to patterns in our lives that we wish to change.

I graduated from Temple University with a BA in Psychology and minor in Cognitive Neuroscience, and completed my MA in Clinical Counseling from La Salle University. I have almost a decade of experience in both inpatient and outpatient settings working with severe trauma and crisis with both children and adults. I have had the opportunity to work with clients with anxiety disorders (OCD, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, etc), depression, bipolar disorder, personality disorders, psychotic disorders, substance abuse, co-occurring substance abuse/mental health diagnoses, relationship conflicts, bereavement, and behavioral diagnoses.

I have passion for the work that I do, and hope to work with you to establish relief with whatever brings you to therapy, utilizing personally tailored treatment. I utilize techniques from a myriad of therapeutic modalities, including Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Person Centered Therapy, Psychoanalytic techniques, and an emphasis on mindfulness techniques. Experiencing emotional pain doesn’t have to continue and you don’t have to go through it alone.

Jordan Seidel


“I became a psychotherapist because that’s where people will unburden themselves, where they will show what is in their hearts.” 
― Rollo May

Hello! My name is Dr. Jordan Seidel. I am a licensed psychologist in the state of Pennsylvania. I have experience working with an array of depression, anxiety, personality, and substance use concerns, as well as experience working with trauma-related sequalae. I am rooted in an approach that predominantly pulls from existential-humanistic and psychodynamic psychologies. I believe that the client is the expert of their experience, and that their experience within the present can be connected to their experience of the past – creating and maintaining particular dynamics between the self and others. I also use the therapeutic relationship to inform the work – providing for corrective emotional experiences and empowering my clients to strive for the embodiment of an authentic self. Additionally, I utilize DBT and CBT interventions with intentionality; and I will always strive to cultivate and maintain a safe and compassionate therapeutic environment.

Ashley Slade

You are the expert on your own life.  Many believe that going to therapy is about someone else giving you the answers, but the truth is, therapy is all about someone coming alongside of you with support and encouragement so that you, the expert, can achieve the goals you want for your life. Therapy works because you choose it!  My name is Ashley Slade and I am here to partner with you.

As an eclectic/integrative therapist, I utilize many skills and techniques to advocate for you as an individual and for the situations that are present in your life. I will encourage your voice, verbally and nonverbally to enable self-expression, self-reflection, and self-awareness to help you build and maintain a positive sense of self.  My psychotherapeutic approaches and interventions are humanistic, experiential, cognitive-behavioral, and psychoanalytic. My clinical lens is trauma informed – understanding that things happen to people, always believing your life narratives and recognizing that though there are steps to recovery, it isn’t easy.

As a Movement Therapist, I focus on mind/body connection, facilitating breathwork, mindfulness and embodiment techniques. Our sessions together can incorporate music and will emphasize freedom within structure, giving you the flexibility to lead on your physical, mental, emotional, and social healing.

Courtney Snow

Courtney Snow, MA, ATR-BC, LPC, is an art psychotherapist with credentials as a Registered, Board Certified Art Therapist and Licensed Professional Counselor. She has worked extensively with children, adolescents, adults and families within behavioral health agencies, community outreach programs, educational settings, residential and outpatient programs. Courtney is experienced in treating individuals who have substance use disorders, developmental disorders, thought disorders, complex trauma, emotional disturbances, unresolved grief, and relationship issues. Through an integrative, humanistic approach, Courtney utilizes creative modalities through art materials to assist clients in connecting to their feelings and needs, release emotional distress, increase insight and awareness which can promote healing and resiliency. Artmaking is a nonverbal, universal language that has the power to speak with imagery and can transform maladaptive thinking. Art is a deeply personalized form of self-expression and it can increase the awareness of self, identify intrapersonal worth and purpose, increase coping, and find meaning in one’s life. One does not require artistic experience to enjoy this practice and each art-based directive is empathically tailored to the client’s needs.

Courtney’s active involvement in her professional community includes membership within the American Art Therapy Association and she maintains credentialing through continued research as well as promoting advocacy and education towards creative art therapy advances.

Brianna Thero

Hello, I am Brianna D. Thero, a licensed professional counselor. I believe in providing comprehensive, inclusive, and compassionate therapy where there is psychoeducation along with effective interventions and methods. Said psychoeducation and interventions are presented in a manner conducive to rewiring survival methods that no longer serve clients.

I feel a non-judgmental environment can foster insight that can lend to personal evolution. Normalizing the human experience can be beneficial. And key concepts including, but not limited to, destigmatizing, authenticity, making connections, balance, and perspective can be discussed and implemented in a freeing manner.

I feel a collaborative approach is best suited for progress. I incorporate the theoretical orientations of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), psychodynamic oriented therapy, mindfulness, problem-solving, & self-compassion. I have had training in trauma-related techniques. And have worked with diverse populations in multiple settings.

I have worked with most diagnosis and prefer discussing anxiety, OCD, and trauma. I have also worked with children and adolescents.

My undergraduate degree from Kansas State University was in Sociology with an emphasis in Criminology. I have a Master’s degree from Boston University in Criminal Justice and a Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling from Walden University.

Have you ever stayed awake at night worrying about how your life got so out of control? Do you feel depressed about how it is all affecting your relationship with your partner, your children or your ability to provide for your family? Are you secretly afraid that your final wall of confidence will crumble soon? Anxiety can make any of us feel stuck, but there is hope. You deserve to live a life that leaves you excited to wake up every morning.

I offer an effective therapy called The Gottman Method. It helps individuals and couples learn how to
have a happier relationship. We’ll work through your patterns, and I’ll help you and your partner learn new ways to communicate with each other. Couples who complete this process often come out seeing each other differently. Not only will you develop communication skills, but you may feel even closer and learn to see each other in a whole new way.

My job is to be the calming center while you and your partner grow together. One of the bravest things you can do is begin to understand and share your own story. Our time together will be effortlessly
intuitive, as if you were just talking to your best friend.

My career track-record also extends to treating persons experiencing eating and substance use
disorders, PTSD, depression, anxiety, Career Difficulties, Agoraphobia, Anger Management, Divorce, OCD, Panic Attacks, Self Esteem, Social Anxiety, Grief, Social Anxiety, along with any other condition that has these ingredients present.
