About Me

Hi! My name is Marisol and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Pennsylvania. I attended Messiah College where I earned my Master's degree in Clinical Mental Health. I am also Board Certified in Telemental Health. I have been working in the mental health field for 6 years. I specialize in working with adolescents, adults, and aging adults and have experience with a variety of issues including, anxiety, depression, stress-related issues, self-esteem, career counseling, life transitions, and many more.

I believe that sometimes life throws us curve balls that often cause us to lose focus of our goals. The stress of demanding lifestyles and the fears and anxiety that arise when life suddenly changes course can have a negative effect on how we live life. You may often find yourself wondering what you can do to move from simply coping and surviving to living your best life. Maybe it seems like you've tried everything, but nothing seems to work. Whether you’re experiencing depression, anxiety, or need help with managing stress due to recent life changes, it takes courage to ask for help.

Imagine what it would feel like to live a life where you feel empowered, passionate, and re-energized. A life where you feel confident in your ability to navigate life's challenges and to get back on your path to your best life when you've been temporarily knocked off course. Ultimately feeling in control of how you experience life. It would be an honor to assist you in moving towards a healthy and fulfilling life as you conquer your challenges and achieve your goals.

Marisol is the type of therapist you hope to be matched with because she's patient and a good listener. She doesn't just listen to what you say, she reads in between the lines and asks questions that help you understand yourself better. I would recommend Marisol to anyone who is seeking therapy and especially to those who might be reticent to discuss personal issues with a stranger; she is extremely patient and kind.

I enjoy Marisol. I can tell she really cares about what is going on with me. I look forward to my sessions with her each week. It has become a true comfort zone for me. She is very encouraging of letting me feel the way I am feeling. I never feel pressured to talk about anything I don't want to. She gives me great coping mechanisms that I can apply to everyday life and that is also comforting to have.

Marisol is the perfect fit for my needs and concerns at the present time. She is approachable, open, and her gentle nature truly makes her a wonderful therapist. Marisol offers tools and techniques, exercises to help me to refocus and take control of my thoughts to help me move forward to a positive and beneficial state of mind.
