Advanced Psychotherapies

Bruce Hersey, LCSW


I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in private practice in Altoona, PA for the past 30 years.

Over the past ten years, my practice has evolved to include consultation and training for other mental health professionals seeking certification in advanced psychotherapy methods, such as: Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS), Clinical HypnosisEye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR), and  Sex Therapy.  Much of this work is done via phone or Skype, with consultees in other states and countries. 

For my office clients, I offer a highly integrated approach combining these advanced methods in a holistic way to help them travel their own paths toward health, healing, and recovery.  Professionals obtaining consultation to develop advanced skills for their own practices also benefit from the combination of these advanced specialties and the opportunity to blend and integrate them at a high level.
