Mary Bodnar

(MSEd, NCC, LPC)

About Me

I am a licensed professional counselor in Pennsylvania for 7 years of experience working as a mental health and drug and alcohol counselor. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, trauma and grief.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I am passionate about helping people in need of help. I strive to help my clients find their own strength to overcome their issues. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral and client centered therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

I am also half American and Japanese. Therefore, I speak both languages fluently. If anyone is in need of counseling in Japanese, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Our mind and soul can become ill like our body desperately needing care. I hope you find some strength within you to seek help. I will be glad to listen and guide you through your issues.

I look forward to working with you!

Mary is great to talk with. I was skeptical at first reaching out and thought it would take a few tries to find the right person to talk with, but she has been helpful from the get go
