About me

I believe that if every human being had someone to provide them with unconditional positive regard, especially during the formative years of childhood, our world would be a safer place. Unfortunately, many of us don’t even make it through childhood without wound from emotionally painful experiences. Sometimes the consequences from these experiences are long-lasting, and can impact our well-being, relationships, and work. Fortunately, therapy can help. I have worked in community and university settings for the past 7 years, and I have experience treating a variety of mental health struggles such anxiety, depression, sexual abuse, trauma, marriage/family issues, and communication challenges.

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist in the state of Pennsylvania. I draw from process-experiential models to help you explore your inner world in order to access your authentic self. To accomplish this, I create a non-judgmental space for you to be able to process your emotions and experiences honestly. I also integrate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Family Systems Theories to provide you with coping tools and a deeper understanding of your situation.

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Mariana Scutaru. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

She listens to my concerns and puts in serious thought to dig deeper into them and what may be causing them, as well as helping identify some concerns I’ve never thought of. She does a great job working with me to work towards understanding and solutions to my problems.
