Jan Horner

Pre-licensed Professional Counselor

Hi! My name is Jan Horner. I received a Master of Science in Counselor Education from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette in 2016. I am a pre-licensed mental health counselor working under the supervision of Katherine Glick, LPC (LPC Lic # 37PC00477600, PC009315). I completed a Master’s degree as part of a CACREP-accredited program, which gave me insight into utilizing eclectic counseling techniques to assist individuals of all ages from different cultures, socioeconomic statuses, and religious/spiritual backgrounds. I believe that a caring, authentic and strong connection between clients and the therapist is essential to facilitate meaningful change and it is a privilege to be to be invited to participate in another person’s transformational journey. The invitation to be in a healing relationship must be met with respect, authentic compassion, and real human-to-human engagement. My role as a therapist is to not only help clients heal the inevitable relational wounds, but also to help them cultivate the resilience to live life with clarity, courage, and compassion. The philosophical backing for my work is found in Relational-Cultural Theory (RCT) which posits that we grow through and towards healthy relationships; we are hardwired to connect. Therapy helps make sure those connections are healthy. I seek to help clients find the changes they seek by responding to the needs and challenges that emerge during our work together. As a therapist, I listen and respond as a non-judgmental witness trying to understand how all the parts of their experience affect movement toward their desired goals.

Octavia Beyah

Pre-licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Hi! My name is Octavia Beyah (she/her) and I am a pre-licensed therapist from Philly currently working under the clinical supervision of Akeesha Washington, LPC (LPC License # PC010543). My work experience includes providing therapy in high schools, the juvenile justice system, hospitals, and private practice settings. As a humanistic and trauma-informed therapist, I view my role as a collaborative partner in which we work together towards the goals that you set for yourself. I compassionately work with clients and empower them to envision and work towards what healing and mental wellness means to them. I believe that change occurs when we understand our patterns of behavior and choose ways of being that are more congruent with the goals we set for ourselves. My intention is to never pathologize or label clients, but rather take into account the ways that everyday stressors such as racism, marginalization, oppression, poverty, and various other systems play a role in shaping who we are. I am passionate about decreasing the barriers and stigma associated with therapy, especially within the Black and brown community. My hope is that our sessions will support you on your healing journey.<br /> I LOVE the Internal Family Systems Model (IFS) because of it’s deep respect for who and how we are. That said, I work integratively, pulling from a variety of strategies and models depending on what’s most beneficial to you.</p> <p>I received my Masters from The Family Institute at Northwestern University. I’ve done extensive training through the IFS-Institute. I’m also a Certified Yoga Teacher, as well as a Group, Workshop & Retreat Facilitator. And for whatever it’s worth, I am in individual and couple’s therapy myself because it’s amazing and transformative. I believe that all people and relationships (even the healthy ones) can benefit from having a space to process, heal, and grow.

I really enjoy working with individuals with the goal to foster a stronger and healthier relationship with themselves and their place within the world. Empathy, empowerment, and acceptance are at the core of my clinical practice. I am exceptionally motivated and committed to the wellness and healing of those that I have the opportunity to work and connect with.


Ashley Lagrange, M.Ed

Pre-licensed Professional Counselor

My name is Ashley Lagrange. I hold a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology from Temple University in Philadelphia, PA. I am also a certified K-12 School Counselor in the state of Pennsylvania. I have experience with a combination of youth work and school based counseling, as well as experience working with the Queer and Trans Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (QTBIPoC) population. As a therapist, I work mostly with transitional age youth (16-24) and up. I have experience working with the LGBTQIA+ community, using a humanistic, ecological approach to discuss depression, anxiety, racial trauma, gender and sexuality, including gender identity, sexual orientation, grief, and ableism. As a clinician, I seek to guide and hold space for folks as they go through their own journey towards self awareness, accountability, and actualization. I adapt to each client’s capacity but frequently provide homework or encourage extra work outside so that the individual is engaging in real life with the topics we discuss in session. I like to remind clients that therapy is not done one way but can be adapted to what honors their individual experience, energy, and emotions.
