I am a licensed professional counselor in Pennsylvania for 8 years of experience working as a mental health and substance abuse 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!

I've been enjoying working with Mary and have found it to be very helpful. She is supportive, caring, and understanding, she always responds back quickly, and she provides valuable feedback, suggestions, and insights. I love that she asks questions to get me to dig deeper and share more. I would definitely recommend her.
She has been amazing in seeing my situation from an outsiders point of view. She has helped me through some really touch topics and is helping me make better life decisions.
I am a working mom with 2 kids, this allows for me to choose therapy for my schedule.
I have been helped by her very professional approach and very caring attitude towards helping me focus on issues rationally and calmly. I feel lucky I could have a high standard of professional counseling thousands of miles away from home. Thanks a million, Mary!
She really helps me out a lot and I love the advice that she gives me. She's gotten me through so much, and I could go to her for anything. I really appreciate that she's really really helped me through a lot and I would love for her to stay my therapist for a really long time.
Super helpful and a great balance of care and professionalism to help me navigate the struggles through my life.
Mary pays attention to detail, is compassionate and understanding. Has a good understanding of addiction. and is openminded and non judgmental.
She has been very good. Exceeding my expectations. My problem is wanting a magic bullet. I need to work hard at pulling out of this tail spin and Mary is perfect for the mentor to do so.
Lovely and caring person who listens to you and knows what she's talking about.
Mary Bodnar is amazing! Her advice helped me so much. She is completely understanding, open, and patient. Thank you, Mary!
She is very helpful and I could write great things about her for days. It all boils down to her being an excellent therapist.
Mary has been very helpful. She can relate to my background and is familiar with the exam that I have been studying for.
Mary was very helpful, and was able to guide me along the path I should take. I felt enormous relief at the end of our sessions. Thank 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
Mary is always extremely quick with responses and provides helpful positive advice! Always brings me up on a rough day and helps me with issues I need a second opinion on.
