About Me

Emet Bergman, LCSW (they/them/elle) believes in psychotherapy as a powerful tool for healing, personal growth, and community change. They bring their passion for social justice  and self awareness to their roles as a psychotherapist, supervisor, and consultant with Transformative Psychotherapy LLC. Emet graduated from the University of Pennsylvania School of Social Policy and Practice (MSW) in 2014 and Haverford College (BA) in 2009. Emet's academic training prepared them for previous work providing clinical services in a residential recovery setting, a boatbuilding youth after school program, with an LGBTQ crisis hotline, in the Philadelphia county jails, and in a College counseling center. Emet is currently licensed in the state of Pennsylvania #CW020583. 

While Emet is primarily a therapist, their training as a Social Worker has informed their simultaneous role as an advocate for social change and equitable best practice. As an advocate, Emet has delivered training and provided supportive facilitation to youth workers, arts programs, community bail fund volunteers, educators, and social work graduate students, regarding social and emotional learning, racial equity and LGBTQ inclusion. 

Originally from Connecticut, Emet currently lives in West Philadelphia with their two beloved cats. In pursuit of joy Emet enjoys cycling, gardening, engaging in community initiatives, baking, boxing, boating, and participating in revolution.
