Hi there, I’m Cari Herschman (she/her)!
I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) with over ten years of experience counseling teenagers, young adults, and adults living with depression, anxiety, life transitions, mood disorders, grief, loss, and relationship issues.
I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Human Development and Family Studies from Pennsylvania State University and completed my Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Kutztown University.
My goal is to help you embrace your strengths and use them so you can find the fulfillment you desire in life. Using a person-centered approach, I’ll become your partner to find your inner strength, empowering you and helping you connect with your best self.
I believe everyone can benefit from therapy, learning new coping skills, and changing unhealthy thought patterns. I am here to help you set goals and work to achieve them. During our sessions, I’ll provide a no-pressure, non-judgmental, and safe environment.
The first step of scheduling a new client appointment can feel scary and uncertain. I promise to meet and support you wherever you are in your journey. I look forward to meeting you and learning all about you!

Cari Herschman is available for online counseling across Pennsylvania and offers some in-person counseling sessions at our beautiful Lehigh Valley therapy office (Emmaus, PA).
Whether you are suffering from panic attacks, obsessive – compulsive disorder, or generalized anxiety we have therapists who use evidenced-based treatments, such as cognitive-bahavioral therapy, to help you.
Depression and anxiety are extremely common, but often under-diagnosed by medical providers during pregnancy and postpartum. Our providers have specialized training to help women with anxiety and depression in this specific period in their lives.
Depression, one of the most common mental health disorders, is very treatable. Our therapists are specially trained to help individuals with depression get back to feeling like themselves again.
Struggling with infertility can be so difficult, especially if no one around you has experienced something similar. It can feel like an isolating journey and people find they often need support to navigate the emotional aspects of the process. Our therapists have specialized training to help you.
Life transitions encompass many things, including starting or ending a romantic relationship, changes with work or school or making any big life change, such as a move. Often we underestimate how these changes will affect us emotionally until we find ourselves struggling with the ups and downs of the life transition.
While we don’t provide couples counseling at Move Forward, many individuals seek counseling to discuss how they can have healthier relationships. Our therapists can help you learn new ways of communicating, setting boundaries, and other ways to have more positive relationships with others.
Moving into adulthood brings its own set of challenges. You may feel pressure to have a “career” or find your life partner. You may be unsure of making these big life decisions and may feel lost because you no longer have school or other adults in your life telling you what you should choose.
Reach out today to get started. Our supportive staff will help guide you through the scheduling process, discuss special requests and consult your insurance needs.
