Astra B. Czerny, PhD, NCC, LPC, DCC

I am a licensed professional counselor, an EMDR certified therapist, and owner of Integrative Healing Counseling, a distance counseling private practice. I have relocated to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and will be opening a private practice in the East Falls area soon. Currently, I offer distance counseling via phone, video, and email to North Carolina residents. EMDR services cannot be offered through distance counseling. If you are interested in learning more about distance counseling, please feel free to contact me. I would be happy to discuss the possibility of working with you!

I work to help people empower themselves and live more authentically. Integrative Healing Counseling is a space where you can recover and heal from past hurts and wounds, and create the life that you want. I help people discover what needs to change and walk with them through the process.

  • Is saying “no” difficult for you?
  • Do you struggle to set boundaries with others?
  • Are your own needs and happiness pushed aside to stay in a relationship?
  • Is your self worth based on how others treat you?
  • Are you noticing red flags?

All of us experience challenges and go though hard times. We all struggle. Let me help you understand what is getting in the way.  Together,we can guide your actions to a place where you feel more in control – Empowered!

Empowerment and healing go hand-in-hand. Breaking free of self-destructive behaviors and creating momentum for change can be challenging, and is best addressed in the confidential space of a counseling relationship. You will find that I honor that space and provide the support necessary to succeed.

Integrative Healing Counseling is inclusive of all. I work with individuals, couples, and families from all walks of life. I also accept Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance.
