Abigail BartusAbigail Bartus, MSS, LCSW: Throughout each person’s journey, we encounter challenging times that may impact our enjoyment and experience of life. I believe strongly in the support, encouragement and guidance a therapeutic relationship can provide. As a therapist, I work together with children, adolescents, women and men to improve their feeling of fulfillment in life. My therapeutic orientation is highly client-centered and focused on the strengths of the individual. I strive to create a safe and nurturing environment for each client, combining psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral and strength based approaches. This can include development of coping skills, stress management and exploration of self. We create goals centered around your needs and desire for change. My clinical expertise includes focus on difficult life transitions, adolescence and emerging adulthood, depression, anxiety, grief and eating disorders. I specialize in the treatment of eating disorders, integrating my experience from work at the Renfrew Center, a well-known eating disorder treatment facility in the region.

Johanna KulpJohanna Kulp, MSW, LCSW: I am a therapist who believes in the possibilities therapy offers to help manage life’s daily stresses and create personal change and growth. My approach is to meet the needs of my client by jointly developing a clear plan towards a healthier individual. I believe that therapy provides a unique experience where one can feel cared for and supported. I utilize a psychodynamic technique incorporating thought challenges, coping skill use, and self-care importance. In this environment, my clients can work through feelings to create positive changes in their lives. My clinical expertise includes working with individuals and couples in the treatment of eating disorder issues. I am also trained and experienced in grief therapy, self-esteem building, personal growth, adjustment to life changes, and anxiety and depression. I graduated with a degree from the University of Pennsylvania where my training focused on psychodynamic therapy skills to help my clients heal and grow. Subsequently, I continued my work at the Renfrew Center for eating disorder treatment and the University of Pennsylvania before joining Live Well Therapy Associates.
