Biography | Harlee Abromson, LCSW, Director Emeritus

My passion for this profession began many years ago because of my own trials and the gifts of wisdom, courage, faith, gratitude and patience that I received from those who helped me when I was a young person. I knew that giving back to others would be the aim of my life's work.

Harlee Abromson, LCSW, Director Emeritus F
or over twenty years I've enjoyed my work with individuals, couples, families, and groups, helping people successfully change their lives, feel good about themselves, let go of painful pasts and the blocks and barriers. I offer compassion, direction and respect for your journey.

I graduated Summa Cum Laude, as a University Scholar, from The University of Pittsburgh in 1993. In 1995, I completed a Master's of Social Work with high honors. Afterwards I taught Cultural Diversity at The University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Social Work as an adjunct professor while working as a therapist.

Eventually my full-time work became therapy in a private setting, and continues as such today. In my practice, I implement various modalities according to your needs. Often, a psychodynamic approach is combined with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and new mindfulness strategies. What is of utmost importance to me is that you feel comfortable and safe in our therapeutic relationship.

Mindfulness & Growth

Mindfulness often feels first like a choice then an enriching part of ourselves that closely connects with inspiration. Clinical studies have shown mindfulness-based cognitive therapy can reduce returns of depression by fifty-percent. As we become more perceptive of the power of our focus, we learn to let certain emotions and ideas pass by us without fastening ourselves to these currents. What once would have swept us away is perceived then overcome.

Mindfulness can connect us with:

healthy adaptability

the living now

healing for the deep traumas from our histories

releases of new energies

holistic wellness

I believe it is important to explore the past in order to understand why we think, feel and behave in the ways we do today.

And to choose happiness.
