My name is Nathan Houck. I hold a Master’s Degree in Clinical and Counseling Psychology from Chestnut Hill College. Currently, I am working towards licensure as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Pennsylvania, working under the clinical supervision of Kat Glick, LPC. I also have a Master’s Degree in Philosophy from Georgia State University.
I have experience in multiple clinical settings working with anxiety, depression, life transitions, loss and grief, interpersonal and relational difficulties, and substance use. Also, I work with individuals who may simply want to better understand themselves, identify their purpose, or grapple with questions of meaning in life.
My approach to therapy explores how relationships have impacted you, whether relationships with other people, relationships with systems in society, or the relationships between the different parts of yourself. Once we identify the dynamics impacting your experience, we work on solutions to bring about change. My therapeutic approach is trauma informed, gender affirming, and antioppressive, which means discussions of systems of power, oppression, and privilege are welcome and encouraged in the therapeutic space.
Also, I incorporate elements of mindfulness, spirituality, and other therapeutic approaches when helpful – because one approach does not fit all when it comes to therapy. The core of my therapeutic philosophy is the acknowledgement that every person has a right to be who they are and to better understand themselves as they move through life.
