Hello, my name is Eden Diasio and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Pennsylvania. I provide individual counseling to adults who struggle with anxiety, depression, substance use issues, relationship challenges, and other life stressors. I offer the opportunity for you to discover and explore your concerns in an unbiased and safe place where you can build confidence and learn new tools towards improving your mental health and quality of life. Sharing about your experiences, thoughts, and feelings might feel uncomfortable however, leaning into discomfort does not have to be done alone. It takes great strength to allow an outsider into your world and it is a tremendous privilege for me to share this therapeutic relationship with you. In my approach to counseling, I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Interviewing techniques while working to meet the needs of each individual. Together we can explore and understand thoughts and perceptions and how they influence behavior. We will also work to identify your opportunities for growth and healing, while building upon your strengths. The act of seeking therapy is courageous as you are allowing someone else into the private and sacred places of your life. Fostering a trusting relationship with you will always remain at the forefront of my practice as I am committed to providing you with a meaningful and honest connection.

25 years of experience

I am a Clinical Social Worker with over 25 years of post masters level experience and licensed in Pennsylvania. My earliest trainings began at a university affiliated psychiatric research institute with focus on therapies for substance dependence and mood disorders. Following this, I focused on family therapy interventions, working with highly conflicted couples and helping persons using aggression and violence in relationships. I am well trained and experienced in both individual and group psychotherapies including psychodynamic, cognitive based, dialectical and relaxation-meditative approaches to increase mindfulness. I have lived and worked in rural, urban and island communities. I have experience working with people across cultures and value the cultural experience of people in shaping their lives. I am experienced in working with active duty personnel and military veterans. My current practice is focused on the treatment of problems of mood and anxiety, post traumatic stress, post-acute recovery from substance dependence, persons with histories of family disruption and codependency, and highly conflicted relationships with and without intimate partner violence. My approach is person-centered and non-judgmental. I believe strongly in a client's ability to find solutions to the difficult issues in life, the importance of individual freedom of choice in seeking out those solutions, and personal accountability in managing the results of those choices. My style is collaborative. We will work together to identify your goals, explore the choices that will move you toward these goals and develop the knowledge and skill necessary for your success. I believe that the discomforts and difficulties we encounter are only part of the rich fabric of life and that it is through the resolution of these that we learn to manage our lives. And so, the life difficulties that you bring to our work together will contain the unique gateways to a more fulfilling and rewarding life for you.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Some other commonly asked questions on therapy with a licensed counselor and BetterHelp serving the Bonneauville area can be found below:

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Bonneauville therapist?

The average price of an in-person therapy session in the US is $100 to $200 per hour. These prices may be higher in Bonneauville due to a higher cost of living. The price also depends on the type of provider you are looking for. See the following average prices for various mental health providers without insurance:

  • Counseling with a psychiatrist: $150-$500
  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300
  • Therapy with a psychologist: $100

While many psychologists in Bonneauville may not take health insurance, some in the state of Pennsylvania may work on a sliding scale, meaning they'll factor in your income and charge what you can afford per session. With BetterHelp or clinicians throughout the state of Pennsylvania you can expect significantly more affordable options, with sessions ranging from $65 to $100 per week (billed every four weeks).

How is a licensed therapist on this online therapy platform verified?

Therapists in Bonneauville, Pennsylvania working on BetterHelp are licensed, trained, experienced, and accredited as a doctor of psychology (PhD / PsyD), licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW / LICSW), or licensed professional counselors (LPC). All of these psychology clinicians have a Masters Degree or a Doctorate Degree in their field of psychology sciences, and follow the APA Code of Ethics. They have been qualified and certified by their state's professional board after successfully completing the necessary education, exams, training and practice with a patient, and extensive experience in a healthcare clinic or treatment centers, in order to become a mental health provider. While their lived experience, expertise, careers, and background vary, they all possess at least 3 years and 1,000 hours of hands-on experience with adult and sometimes teen patients, and have the necessary therapist credentials to provide a safe space for long lasting emotional healing in therapy. 

Please note BetterHelp does not offer or provide care from psychiatrists to prescribe a drug as treatment, or perform psychological assessments.

How does working with a counselor in BetterHelp online therapy sessions work?

BetterHelp clinicians treat clients online across the United States (individuals and couples) through life transitions, inner child exploration, long term depression or anxiety, and more.

You can also try a Bonneauville therapy provider through BetterHelp's sister platform, ReGain, which is dedicated to couples and spouses worldwide. 

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a therapist is the validation and active listening they can provide. Your friends and loved ones may also be available to listen, but you may feel that they may lack the skills to provide objective guidance. Counselors are trained to respond to various concerns, symptoms, and mental health conditions.

A psychologist in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs. While supporting individuals in developing healthier habits, another good benefit of therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

Many people have sensitive topics that they may feel ashamed to discuss with their friends or partner. A Bonneauville therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support. There are also many types of therapy, such as art therapy, where you may find you can express yourself through creativity instead of words.

With a lot of people in PA, providers may be booked out with clients.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Bonneauville counselor?

Before seeing your therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice. A Bonneauville licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles.

Is mental health care and therapy worth it? 

Therapy is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health professional has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Bonneauville, Pennsylvania can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Bonneauville has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey. If you opt into online therapy, you might also be able to meet with providers all over the United States and change therapists easily at any time. Many people struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse, body image issues, and more find therapists that are a good fit for them, feel supported, and gain further insight into their lives through internet-based therapy.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
