Professional statement

Dorothy L Ingram is a LPC in Uniontown. She works with Individuals and couples, between the ages of 13 and 99 yrs old. Many of Dorothy’s clients come in to address trauma, chronic pain, addiction, grief/loss, and existential life transitions. Dorothy is particularly passionate about serving women's issues, members of the LGBTQIA community, POC and ethnic minorities, addiction, trauma, chronic pain, couples, and anyone seeking change and a better quality of life. She also has advanced training in the area of PTSD, substance abuse/dependency, depression, anxiety, chronic pain, and adjustment disorders.

Dorothy is trained in EMDR, Flash method, CBT, and Mindfulness, in the development of a therapeutic relationship in which a person can feel safe to confidently identify the barriers to the quality of life that they wish for themselves. We then create a plan to make the changes beneficial to achieve those goals. In session, Dorothy focuses on a variety of mindfulness techniques, employing breathing, tapping, guided visualization, grounding, body movement, and journaling. This approach supports clients to release emotional, communication and behavior patterns that no longer serve them and create new, more fulfilling patterns for their lives.

Dorothy's style is non-judgmental, partnering, and thoughtful. When clients first start therapy, we work to understand a client's values, beliefs, priorities, history, and communication style so we can develop a plan to achieve their goals.

Dorothy received their MS in Community and Agency Counseling from California University of Pennsylvania. She has worked at AMS, where she worked as a substance abuse/dependency counselor which sparked a neuropsychology focus to therapy. Outside of private practice, she loves gardening, reading and social activism. The office is located on the 2nd floor and in-person sessions are available to vaccinated clients. We also offer telehealth through Simple Practice for convenience and unvaccinated clients.


Message to clients

If you're looking for a compassionate, non-judgmental and clinically based therapist who really does care and wants to see you achieve whatever goal you have, welcome! I believe "We're all just walking each other home" as Ram Dass said. I know change can be difficult or scary and life can feel lonely and overwhelming sometimes. I also know how the right support at the right time can make so much difference.

I believe in the transformative power of emotional healing and view the therapeutic relationship as the vehicle. It all starts with you; your hopes, beliefs and goals. I am honored to be chosen to partner with my clients and walk along side them for parts of their journey. Your story is important to me, as is your well-being, and it's my goal to assist in helping you change patterns that no longer serve you, or identify new ways of managing challenges.

I focus on a holistic model of wellness, the mind-body connection, and communication. I integrate many different therapeutic modalities into session, dependent on what you identify as important to you. I send a welcome packet of forms and assessments prior to our first session in order to gain some preliminary information and allow us to focus more fully on you, from that initial session to the last. I look forward to meeting you and again, welcome to Peace and Perspective Counseling, LLC!
