“You can't go back and change the beginning; but you can start where you are and change the ending" 

-C.S. Lewis

Her therapeutic orientation is eclectic, with a focus on positive/motivational psychology. Dr. Edwards-Hawver strongly believes that therapy is not “a one-size fits all” model and tailors her therapy to meet the needs of the individual client she is working with.

On a personal note, Dr. Edwards-Hawver has been married to her husband for 22 years (together for 27 years). She considers him to be her biggest champion and best friend. She has two amazing boys who were both adopted from birth: Thomas (7) and Lucas (5). After struggling with infertility for years, the gift of adoption allowed her to fulfill her dream of becoming a mom. Like most things in life, Dr. Edwards-Hawver took this experience and uses it to help others suffering from infertility or going through the roller-coaster ride of adoption. 

Dr. Edwards-Hawver was drawn to the field of psychology after having heart surgery at the age of 21. Her heart was damaged due to years of suffering from Anorexia Nervosa and later abusing laxatives. She was in recovery when she was diagnosed with Congestive Heart Failure. After undergoing three heart surgeries and getting a second chance at life, she made the decision to become a psychologist so she could help others suffering from eating disorders. She has been fully recovered from her eating disorder for 28 years.

Her most recent battle has come in the form of Lyme disease. Dr. Edwards-Hawver most likely contracted Lyme disease in 2012, but was not diagnosed until 2014. She understands first hand how frustrating it can be to find physicians who are knowledgeable in Lyme disease and the devastating physical and emotional toll Chronic Lyme Disease can have on your life. She is a strong advocate for people becoming the CEO of their own health care. In addition to Lyme disease, she also has several confections that are often common in Lyme Disease Patients: Mycoplasma, Babasia, and Epstein Bare. Please view her business Facebook page by clicking here to view her full journey with Lyme Disease. Just as Dr. Edwards-Hawver did in the past, she has taken this additional journey in her life to help others. She now works individually with Lyme patients and offers a Lyme Disease Therapy Group at her office in Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania (Insert Link to Lyme Disease Support Group) She is in the process of developing an on-line Lyme disease support group as well.

In her free time, Dr. Edwards-Hawver enjoys spending time with her husband, children, and her 17-year-old rescue dog, Sophie. She has a passion for travel and her sacred place is being near the water. Dr. Edwards-Hawver loves to learn and you will usually find her reading six books at one time and creating her next business venture.

She values growth and continually works at growing personally, professionally, and spiritually.
