“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.” Rumi reminds that change is a constant in our lives and we must embrace this challenge. What happens to you does not define you! You are the author of your story. Events and experiences can be your entire story, or they could be just a chapter, or a single sentence. I want you to own your strengths and acknowledge your own control. We are made up of a variety of thoughts, emotions, and actions. I will work beside you to explore your parts and integrate them into a unique and powerful whole.
Welcome, my name is Tracy Sciulli and I am passionate about helping individuals build strategies and knowledge to support their goals towards a more fulfilling life. Seeking out counseling can be difficult, I acknowledge the need for courage and compassion to be a part of the therapeutic process. I work alongside my clients to identify helpful strategies, build their knowledge of why their mind and body may be responding in certain ways, and support meaningful changes towards their goals. My hope is to create a warm and authentic therapeutic relationship to hold space for difficult conversations and encourage personal growth.
I believe life is a journey that presents with unique ups and downs. At times additional support is needed to help overcome challenges and I believe everyone deserves a safe place to process and reflect on those challenges. I value trust and understand how important it is to feel comfortable in the therapeutic setting. I utilize a strengths-based model for therapy and practice trauma-informed care. as well as variety of therapy models in my practice to ensure that our sessions are the most productive for you.
I am a PA licensed mental health counselor and PA registered school psychologist with over 30 years experience in clinical practice, research, and post-secondary instruction. I bring a broad range of skills and experience in the fields of cognitive & school psychology and, as well as an equally seasoned clinical background in child, adolescent & family therapies. I am specialized in the use of cognitive therapy, collaborative problem-solving, didactic and interactive parenting methods, and Adlerian methods for individual change. I have worked with children, teens, & parents within residential, educational, and private settings.
No matter what background we come from life tends to bring its own suffering and difficulties. I view therapy as a place where challenges and painful emotions can be confronted in a safe and caring environment. My personality is warm and empathetic, and I aim to provide a place where clients feel heard, cared for, and listened to. I view clients as being the author of their own lives. Thus, I aim to be collaborative and to help come up with goals that are important and meaningful to you. My style is action oriented, and I try to push clients out of their comfort zones, through the use of mindfulness and behavioral changes.
You are facing a significant life challenge. Maybe it's the death of an important person, or the end of a relationship, or simply a natural life change. Possibly it is another type of challenge, such as recovery from addiction or trauma. Maybe your child is experiencing their own difficulties and you want to help them, but you aren't sure how. You have questions and concerns: Is what I'm feeling ok? How do I best help and support myself and/or my child? How will I re-make my life? What does healing mean to me ... and who am I as I undertake that process? Your questions are valid, and exploring them could be helpful.

Thanks for taking the time to check out my profile. I have worked in the field of substance use disorder for over 40 years. I have a Masters in Social Work and have had many management positions at addiction treatment facilities throughout the years. My passion is working with patients on an individual basis to help process their issues using evidenced-based treatment modalities while also building strong support networks of recovery.
I am a licensed marriage and family therapist who believes in the resilience of others. I believe that life is entirely relational, and that working within the context of relationships helps ensure long-term treatment success. Relationships are hard and take effort; however they are also our greatest source of happiness. When we feel understood, valued, and loved in our relationships, our self-confidence increases. Isn’t that what we all desire? It does not matter if you are a teenager finding your way or an established adult; our relationship with ourselves and others help us define who we are and what our worth is.
I view clients as the experts in their own lives, and my goal is to create a warm and supportive partnership. I support people experiencing trauma, grief and loss, depression and anxiety, eating disorders, substance use disorders, and life transitions. As someone raised in Uganda, South Sudan, and Kenya, moving to the United States as a young adult, I am interested in supporting people processing cross-cultural transition, religion and spirituality, and cultural identity. I hold a dual degree in Counseling and Art Therapy from Drexel University. There, I largely focused on intergenerational, communal trauma.
Patients with chronic symptoms are often told by doctors that there is nothing wrong with them, or that they "just have to live with it." Parents are told that they should wait for their child to "outgrow it." Those answers are dismissive and inadequate. I welcome those with the kind of frustrating, persistent symptoms which have not been resolved with standard medical care alone, and those who wish to enhance their medical care with directed mind-body techniques. Please be aware that I am NOT a psychotherapist or psychiatrist and that I do NOT prescribe antidepressants or do psychiatric medication management.
Perhaps you struggle with depression or anxiety and are overwhelmed trying to manage the stress of daily living. You may find yourself resorting to substance use or other compulsive behaviors as a form of coping with daily stressors. You are committed to change and have tried to change, but lack the deeper awareness of what is driving the behaviors. It can be disheartening to acknowledge the unwanted impact on your life and on your valued relationships.
I am a Certified Advanced Counselor by the NBCC and I am passionate about my work with those affected by alcoholism and addiction. Substance Abuse and Mental Health problems are major roadblocks in a person's life. These issues are nothing to be ashamed of and can be overcome with a proper, specialized treatment plan. I help patients struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders through many different treatment modalities that are specified to each individual. Every person is unique in their personality and life circumstances, therefore, their treatment approach will be suitable to fit their unique situation.
Presently accepting new clients! I offer therapeutic support to children, teens and college age students who are struggling with anxiety related disorders, parental separation/divorce, depression, self-harm, life transitions and self-esteem. I also specialize in working with parents who have children that have a mental health and/or behavioral health diagnoses. My goal is to support these caretakers in having a safe space to process their feelings, manage stressors and identify strengths that can support them in meeting the needs of their child but also working to take care and support themselves in a healthy way.
I approach the therapeutic relationship with a deep conviction and trust in the process. I deeply engage and connect with clients on a heart, mind, and gut level, rather than through the lens of a diagnosis or label they may have acquired along the way. I believe that each person is their own expert. Cultivating better contact with oneself, and learning to be more compassionate and supportive towards self is foundational for the therapeutic process I hold and facilitate. I enjoy working with a diverse group of clientele, especially those with anxiety, depression, and relational disruptions.
I specialize in working with individuals and their families finding difficulty accessing and navigating early recovery. Based on your specific needs, I help identify and execute the most effective intervention strategy. We intervene, educate and coach in a loving and caring manner. Having performed over 900 interventions, I have seen the devastation that Substance Use Disorder has done to families first hand. We can change the course your loved one's addiction has taken them. I work at Recovery Centers of America as an interventionist, family change agent, and an advocate for recovery.
The act of seeking therapy is courageous as you traverse uncomfortable or painful territory in order to gain understanding and acceptance. Until this growth is experienced, one might find themselves feeling anxious, depressed, overwhelmed, or lost. I work with individuals who struggle with building or maintaining relationships, finding purpose and meaning, experienced trauma, gaining self confidence, life transitions, or talking through a specific challenge. I offer the opportunity for you to discover and explore your concerns in an unbiased and safe place where you can learn new tools towards improving your quality of life.
I help clients with stress, anxiety and low self esteem feel better about themselves. I also specialize in organizational (Executive Function) and Social Skills issues, in adolescents and adults struggling with these problems, and work with students in the college process. Whether something is bothering you and you can't pinpoint what it is, or you know you don't feel as good as you could, I help you explore what might be causing you sadness, stress or anxiety, and together we come up with a plan that makes you feel more in control, leading you to live a happier and more fulfilling life.
Licensed Professional Counselor, MS, LPC, CAADC, CCTP-II
Change is hard, but possible with effective therapeutic support. I believe that the role of a therapist is to guide (not push!) clients toward positive change and that no two paths to meeting a goal are the same. Some achieve success very quickly while others require more time. I am committed to helping my clients work through life's challenges at a pace that is right for them.
