Transition from Beech Street Program to

Beech Street Therapy Center

The peacock’s representation of new beginnings not only symbolizes the first step we take to enter into our own personal journey of healing, but for us at Beech Street it represents another new era. Over the course of this year Beech Street Program (Cindy Sniscak) will be teaming up with Beech Street Therapy Center (Jessica Merideth) to make the transition to Beech Street Therapy Center. In 2002 Cindy Sniscak began Beech Street Program. Over the years Cindy along with Dr. Rise Van Fleet, BSP’s Clinical Consultant and President of the Family Enhancement and Play Therapy Center have grown Beech Street Program into a reputable play therapy practice. They have restored hope and family bonds; all while being committed to maintaining a practice based on up to date, evidence based treatment. Beech Street Therapy Center is committed to these same values and playful approach that began Beech Street Program in 2002. I, Jessica, owner of Beech Street Therapy Center, am eager for the opportunity to collaborate and learn from Cindy and meet all those who have been intricate parts to the tapestry that has made Beech Street what it is today. It’s an honor to be part of the Beech Street family and I’m excited for this new chapter! ~Jess



I'm Jessica Merideth NCC, LPC

National Certified Counselor

Licensed Professional Counselor

Owner of Beech Street Therapy Center, LLC

I've had the opportunity to spend the past 10+ years partnering with children & their families to move their relationships forward and increase their overall sense of connection and contentment. Throughout my clinical experience I've been able to gain the skills and training necessary to provide Structural Family Therapy and both directive and non-directive Child Centered Play Therapy. I take a strength-based, relational and creative approach to support individuals, couples & families through a range of life transitions. I believe each child and family are unique and it's often these characteristics that help us to write our story of change. I look forward to partnering with you to rediscover your strengths, supports and sense of connection!



My clinical background involves extensive training in the family systems model from Philadelphia Child Guidance & The Center for Family Based Training. In 2015 I became a Certified Clinical Supervisor in the family based model. Currently, I am pursuing my Registered Play Therapy (RPT) credential, under the supervision of Cynthia Sniscak. I am also partnering with Alberta Family Wellness Initiative, "Building Better Brains," to complete a Brain Story Certification. In addition to this work, I hold a graduate degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Shippensburg University. I also maintain a commitment to the counseling profession as a Licensed Professional Counselor, a member of the National Board of Certified Counselors & an active member of the Association for Play Therapy.
