You’re likely here because you’re ready to rewrite your story, and you’re searching for the right therapist to help. 
 
My integrative, holistic counseling approach combines the best, evidence-based practices to support your journey. 

I’m Joan Kaylor, a holistic counselor and a consultant with over 25 years of experience.

And, I’ve been exactly where you are now.

Until age 39, I struggled to find my purpose and to know my self-worth. I suffered from a condition called trichotillomania, or hair pulling.  But when I volunteered with Trichotillomania Learning Center Foundation for Body Focused Repetitive Behaviors and International OCD Foundation, I discovered the innovative tools to stop pulling my hair and to change my life.   

I imagine you’re feeling lost, alone, and maybe helpless. I remember that place. And, I know there is a pathway to healing the pain.  

It’s time to end the cycle of stress, anxiety, hopelessness, grief, or trauma—even if you’ve told yourself it’s impossible.   

Let’s peel back the layers of what’s causing your suffering and release your fears.

Working together in a safe, supportive space, we’ll set a new course to wellness while empowering you with the self-care tools to aid your journey.

In the 25 years of my holistic psychotherapy practice, I’ve treated countless clients and helped them to reclaim their lives from a variety of conditions, often without medication. These conditions include

·       Severe Trauma

·       PTSD

·       OCD

·       Anxiety

·       Depression

·       Panic disorder

·       Trichotillomania (hair pulling)

·       Dermatillomania (skin picking)

·       Fear of Public Speaking

·       Test-Taking Anxiety

·       Business Anxiety

·       Sports Performance Anxiety

 

I’m a licensed counselor, certified in the three most effective evidence-based approaches to psychotherapy: cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), exposure-response prevention (ERP), and Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT/Tapping). And, I’m the only EFT therapist in Pennsylvania certified by the two most highly respected EFT organizations in the world:  Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology and EFT International.

 

Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) is an exciting, evidence-based, self-help technique in the emerging field of energy psychology. It can help restore the flow and balance of the body’s electromagnetic, subtle energy for physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional well-being. 

 

We’ll use a holistic, integrated approach that leverages counseling to uncover the origin of your distress. Then, we’ll apply the powerful tools of EFT to alleviate the suffering caused by negative thoughts, emotions, and self-sabotaging beliefs. 

 

Are you ready to move beyond your fear and into a life where anything is possible?

Hair Pulling, Skin Picking & OCD

I stopped pulling out my hair in 1989. I have been helping children, teens and adults stop pulling hair and picking skin since 1994 when I became a licensed professional counselor.

Emotional Freedom Techniques

EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Techniques. EFT is a practical self-help method that involves using the fingers to gently tap on the body’s acupuncture points along the meridian lines of Chinese medicine. These are same points used in acupunction but without needles. It is often referred to as ‘EFT Tapping’ or simply as ‘Tapping’. The therapeutic effects of this technique are recognized around the world. One can use EFT tapping for anxiety, weight loss issues, addiction cravings, stress, pain control, trauma, PTSD and many other issues. It is evidenced supported by over 50 controlled double blind studies.

EFT Tapping helps us tune in to the negative patterns that we form around our uncomfortable thoughts, feelings, or troubling memories. We ‘tap’ on the correct pressure points while bringing the thoughts or emotions into consciousness. The aim is to find relief, relaxation, and promote healing around the emotional or physical issues that hold us back.
EFT Applications:

There are two primary applications or faces of EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) or what is now more commonly known as Tapping:

1. EFT or Tapping for Self-Care

This method of gentle tapping on certain areas of the face and body while tuning into an issue, helps you relieve stress and feel better in the moment.

2. One on one

This client-centered care that we do together. During a series of 1-to-1 EFT sessions, I will help you “tap into” yout unique subjective experience of a presenting challenge (or troubling issue/s) for the purpose of gaining clarity and resolution. This supports the client in making changes (emotional and/or physical), shifting limited thought processes, resolving past traumas, opening to beneficial ways to move forward and more.
