Hi, my name is Darlene Oliver.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor (CAADC). I have 25 years of experience providing therapy in multiple settings, including inpatient mental health, outpatient day programs, and outpatient drug and alcohol settings. I enjoy working with people with anxiety, depression, Bipolar Disorder, OCD, Addiction issues, and religious trauma/deconstruction, to name a few.
I believe, first and foremost, in unconditional acceptance and building a trusting relationship. I enjoy exploring with people collaboratively where they become stuck and work together to change patterns that aren’t working to begin to make positive changes. I will also support you in healing from difficult life struggles, including evolution and loss.
My eclectic approach often includes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). I also focus on empowering the individual and working to build self-esteem and confidence to reach one’s goals and full potential. I work with all age ranges, from young adults in helping explore a sense of direction to middle age and beyond. I enjoy working with men and women from all backgrounds, including histories of abuse and trauma.
I have a Master’s degree in Mental Health and Rehabilitation Counseling from the University of South Florida and a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Southeastern University.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family watching movies, and going out to dinner. I enjoy reading and going to the gym. I also love to go to the beach whenever I can.
If you are looking for someone to talk to and work through your issues with, I would love to have the opportunity to speak with you!
Darlene Oliver is available to provide telehealth sessions to anyone living in Pennsylvania.

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.
Move Forward Counseling is an inclusive practice where we want the LGBTQIA+ community to feel welcome and supported. Whether you are unsure how to embrace your identity, are having relationship issues, or need extra support from a non-judgmental person, we have therapists who can help.
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.
Trauma symptoms and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can be debilitating for many who experience it. Recovery from trauma is possible and we have therapists who can help.
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.
