        Therapy is an opportunity to alleviate emotional pain and also a safe space to reflect and grow. When seeking therapy, many people might be unsure of what they want and afraid of the uncertainty. My hope is to help you walk through a healthy perspective to replenish a meaningful and rewarding life where you could see yourself more completely and inspire yourself to be the calm within the storm. With a compassionate, non-judgmental, and psychologically mindful space, I hope you will feel deeply understood and optimistic.

        I work from a genuine, authentic and collaboratively open style. My work is tailored to each client’s needs and presenting problems. During our sessions, we may focus on discovering new coping strategies to manage problems, widening your perspective, providing tools to overcome stressors, facilitate insight as well as promoting self-care and resiliency. I am trained in Emotion-Focused Couples Therapy.

        Having an international background, I value diversity and I am deeply attuned to your unique social and cultural identity and its effect on your individuality, sense of purpose and meaning in life. Currently, I am a Psychologist at the Student Counseling Center as well as Assistant professor of Psychology (Adj) at Graduate School of Education, University of Pennsylvania.

        Community engagement, building relationships, and organizational development are among my passions. I actively collaborate with various communities and organizations to provide mental health services, workshops, training, and private consultations on topics such as racial assault and trauma, interpersonal violence and sexual assault, suicide prevention and intervention, as well as anxiety, depression, and PTSD.

        When I\'m not wearing my counselor hat, I find joy in photography, painting, and woodworking. However, my ultimate happiness comes from the loving support of my family, friends, and colleagues.

        I eagerly look forward to meeting you and embarking on this transformative journey together!

        Warm regards,
        Dr. Yacob Tekie
