The decision to seek help for life's issues can be both scary and exciting. My life has been radically changed by my personal experience of therapy. I know how important having someone to talk with, who can see me more objectively than than I can. I have over 10 years of experience accompanying people on their journey to better mental health and a better life. I have worked extensively with people who have mood disorders, such as depression and bipolar, anxiety and panic, anger problems, communication and relationship difficulties, and more. I am a licensed professional counselor in the states of Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
I like to create a safe environment in which the client can feel heard and seen. I believe that therapy is a partnership in which we work together to find more effective ways to be in the world. I tend toward a psychodynamic approach, which means that I like to include all of the factors that influence your thinking and behavior. I also use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy. Basically, I use whatever I can to help someone feel better and to have a more meaningful life.
I encourage you to invest in yourself, and I thank you for considering working with me.

I am so grateful to have been paired with Mary through your platform. Most connected and well matched therapist I’ve ever worked with.
she is great. I trust her completely
Mary Edwards is an amazing counselor and very understanding . I’m saddened that she can no longer help me. But I will look around at another resource that will be just as helpful. Mary was awesome. Thank you.
My therapist is better than YOURS!!!!!! Ms. Mary has helped me to process through major life challenges from a divorce, to health issues, to self discovery. She is profressional and one of the wisest people I know. Her insightful recommendations keeps me growing and making positive changes. I appreciate this platform and her knowing I can text at anytime. This has been one of the best experiences.
Mary is very responsive, understanding, and she offers helpful insight and solutions.
Is a great listener I really appreciate that and she gives good tips on what to do in my situation. Glad I got her
Excellent support and insight.
Mary connected with me right from the start. I am very happy with her.
Mary is wise and "gets it". we just started working together but I am enjoying my experience thus far.
Mary was wonderful, serving as an empathetic person that I could talk to when struggling with an acute issue. She listened and gave me reassurances and advice that no one else around me could provide. Would highly recommend her help to anyone in need.
Counseling with Mary has made a big difference in my life. She is a wise and very caring person. I would wholeheartedly recommend her!!
Mary is a heartfelt, compassionate and works to get to the root of what is troubling you. She talks to you through video and checks in when every couple of days. Her tips on how to help my stress, anxiety, trauma and OCD is helping me so much after only one live video session. I talk to Mary every couple days and she is always there (within reasonable time) getting back to me. I highly recommend Mary.
Honestly, Mary is fantastic. I've only been with her for about two weeks, and the methods she has suggested to deal with some of my past trauma have helped immensely. I don't feel she is judgemental at all, and I feel I can be honest with her.
Mary has a very genuine and warm personality which aides in her expertise. From the moment we started communicating, I felt like I was in the hands of a caring professional. I'm really grateful to have been matched with her.
