It can be difficult to work through many topics we experience in our lives and collaborating with a counselor can initially be something we are nervous and fearful about. I empathize with these common emotions, and I pledge to make our discussion environment warm, comfortable, and genuine. Trust and deep listening are vital to our counseling relationship, and I will make these the top initial priorities in our discussions. I welcome the opportunity to speak with you, please reach out to schedule time to begin our journey together. I offer flexible times for sessions, which include evenings and weekends.
Lincoln earned his master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Immaculata University. Previously, Lincoln completed his undergraduate degree at West Chester University. He uses an integrative approach that emphasizes client strengths, as well as an emphasis on the present to address and discuss topics of concern to work through together. Lincoln will also seek to use his combination of clinical and life experiences surrounding grief and loss, which is often a source of unresolved pain and trauma in many of our lives.
He has participated in intensive EMDR and psychodrama training during his internship at Phoenix Center, which he integrated within treatment to best assist clients with the most up-to-date techniques and treatment modalities. Lincoln also applies EMDR techniques in coordination with aspects of Motivational interviewing, existential/humanistic, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) within his counseling approach. Lincoln welcomes the opportunity to work with clients from all backgrounds and age groups.
