Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
Send your prospective therapist a brief message about why you’re seeking support, your preference for in-person or telehealth services, and how you’d like to be contacted moving forward. Note: Answers to many common questions can be found on the therapist’s profile page. If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital.
At Journey From Within, our specialty is helping Blended (Step) Families learn how to thrive in their relationship and not merely survive. Blending two families is not always easy. But, when individuals decide to join together, the concept of family changes; we are here to help you make meaning of your collective experiences while learning to blend.
Rhonda graduated from Chestnut Hill College with a Master’s degree in Clinical Counseling and has over 25 years of experience. Her work in the field of counseling has led to helping families in need. In 1993 Rhonda began working at Melmark as a Residential Counselor with youth with developmental disabilities. In 1998 Rhonda started with Horizon House as Home Coordinator in their Developmental Service Department after obtaining her Bachelor’s Degree in 2003 from Eastern University; she worked in Human Resources as a Trainer for professional development. In 2005 Rhonda worked for United Communities as a Program Coordinator overseeing two children and youth programs until 2007. In December 2007, Rhonda became a Cottage Supervisor at Presbyterian Children’s Village. Her experience at PCV was like no other and influenced her to return to school. In January 2011, Rhonda enrolled in Chestnut Hill College and started working at Children’s Choice, Inc as a Foster Care Caseworker. In 2015 Rhonda completed an internship at Children’s Crisis Treatment Center, where she could put her graduate work to practice. Graduate school helped her to see the world through a different lens. She started to understand trauma and how it affects people of color.
Through training and becoming trauma-informed, Rhonda secured a job at a Children’s Crisis Treatment Center in their Family-Based Service Department as a Clinician in 2013. Rhonda was intrigued by how trauma affected the brain and development. While at CCTC she received training in the following areas: family systems, cognitive behavior, mindfulness, depression, trauma, and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Anxiety, parenting and child relationships, grief and loss, and divorce and separation. Initially, her interest in attending the training was personal. Based on her experiences.
After working as a clinician for five years, she was promoted to Clinical Supervisor. Rhonda was responsible for the supervision and training of staff, supporting staff with formulating a case conceptualization, reviewing treatment plans, and facilitating supervision using Ecosystemic Family Therapy (ESFT). Her extensive knowledge of emotional and behavioral interventions, intellectual/developmental disabilities, family dynamics, and systemic issues are what inspired Rhonda to launch Journey From Within.
As a Licensed Professional Counselor, she will create a safe environment for everyone to share their story freely and without judgment. At the same time, she will provide the help and support that is needed. The Journey From Within’s purpose is to help families thrive. We want to embrace the obstacles and work through any growth areas by meeting the family with compassion and love to help strengthen the family unit. The Journey From Within is here to guide your family towards becoming strong and staying that way.
