Alex Ott has a Master’s Degree in Counseling from St. Edward’s University, and is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. Alex began his career in pediatric oncology at Dell Children’s Hospital in Austin, Texas, counseling families, and their children in various stages of cancer treatment. Believing in a systemic approach to care, Alex completed his clinical hours at Austin Family Institute; a premier training site for systemic theory and family therapy across a broad spectrum of focus. Alex took his love of family therapy and opened his own private practice in 2011, where he treated individuals, couples, and families on a sliding scale to allow for a more inclusive and diverse clientele. Alex continued private practice while taking a position as lead therapist in a Partial Hospitalization Program in 2015. An adjunct professor at St. Edward’s University’s Master of Arts in Counseling Program, Alex taught a graduate studies course in drug abuse, treatment and therapy, pharmacology, and neurobiology. Alex considers the process of therapy an ongoing conversation, free of directives and open to curiosities and wonder. Narrative Therapy, Brief Structural Therapy, and Mindfulness, are among the approaches to care Alex utilizes to help improve the lives of those he sees. Alex’s open, empathic stance creates a welcoming environment to explore together the solutions that are unique to each individual.

I am a licensed professional counselor with over 7 years of experience in the mental health and addiction fields, and I have worked at all levels of care including in-patient rehab, intensive outpatient, and individual. I believe we all carry a wealth of past experiences, and that this often involves old or unhealed wounds.
Sometimes this presents as feelings of disconnection, depression, racing thoughts or anxiety, sometimes as substance use, self-harming behavior, or relationship problems. Wherever you are at, I will work to build a relationship together which we can use to explore your life and where you are now with the goal of moving forward and growing in whatever ways you want. The therapist-client relationship is something I value deeply.
I am psychodynamic and relationally oriented. I am also skilled in CBT, DBT and mindfulness-based interventions to help create stability and provide symptom relief where it is needed. When there is stability, therapy will often move towards deeper issues that drive behavior and impact our emotional lives and relationships.
I am also growing and cultivating my own skills by training as a dance movement therapist. Creativity, spontaneity, humor and self-expression are fundamental aspects of life that inform my work.
I work regularly with adults of all ages as well as teens and adolescents. If you are considering therapy or have questions, I would be happy to talk about the work we might do.
Fees are $220-180 per session.
Yona’s orientation/approach as a therapist is rooted in humanism, mindfulness, attachment, and systems theory. He believes that the therapeutic process is more than empathic listening and supportive talk. It is a creative vehicle of self-realization, empowerment, and change.
Yona’s academic training in psychology focused on identity, trauma, human development, learning/schools, and motivation at Harvard University (Masters, 2014) and Temple University (Ph.D., 2019). His experience in the therapeutic practice has taken many forms over the years. For a decade prior to entering graduate school, Yona worked as a life coach for school-refusing adolescents and their families addressing the emotional, relational, and structural issues that create conflict, obstruct growth, and inhibit self-realization.
After completing his graduate studies, Yona worked as a predoctoral clinical intern in the Bering Strait region of Alaska providing culturally-immersed trauma-focused psychotherapy for the remote Bering Sea coast and island communities. He then returned to Philadelphia and completed his predoctoral internship working with children with intellectual and developmental disabilities and behavioral health challenges.
He continues his creative approach to psychotherapy and therapeutic coaching work with Jeremy Frank & Associates.
Fees are $220-180 per session.
My goal, as a therapist, is to create a collaborative relationship in which you find the support, warmth, and safety to challenge the thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors that may be holding you back. As an experienced mental health therapist, I feel honored to hear your story and work together towards change and healing.
Most often I work with individuals, couples, and families affected by addiction, depression, identity/self- esteem, attachment, and relationship challenges. I am trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) which is a powerful tool that has proven effective for the treatment of trauma. Additionally, I have been involved in all aspects of recovery both personally and professionally for many years.
I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology from Rosemont College and a Master’s Degree the Bryn Mawr Graduate Program of Social Work. I am a licensed Social Worker in the state of Pennsylvania.
Fees are $220-180 per session. (sliding scale fees between $150-180 are possible in some cases; please contact for more information).
