Therapist in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Ray Hessek, LPC

Ray Hessek, LPC

Ray (he/they) is a licensed professional counselor who has been practicing since 2006. He graduated from West Chester University with a master’s degree in Clinical Psychology. He has trained at the Philadelphia School of Psychoanalysis and is currently in training at the Gestalt Training Institute of Philadelphia. Having gone through many life transitions, Ray believes that humans are capable of profound changes and growth.

Ray also believes that if we can experience all of life’s moments, we can really live. Part of being able to experience life’s moments is being able to experience all the sensations, emotions, and thoughts that are part of our lived experiences. Ray enjoys helping clients gain awareness of their experience of aliveness and gaining coping skills to deal with all the discomfort that aliveness brings. He utilizes interventions from both CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy).

In his free time, Ray plays trumpet in a marching band, guitar in a jazz band, swims at the YMCA, and is excited about the workshop he just set up to make mechanical creatures and other automatons. He is also learning about electricity, which just seems like magic to him.
