Manheim is a small borough in Pennsylvania built by a Henry William Stiegel, an 18 th -century entrepreneur with a dream of being a glassmaker. Although his industrial empire was a bust, the township itself survived, and several firsts happened in Manheim.

Like Stiegel, many of have met bumps in the road and struggled when things don’t quite go the way that we planned. If you are struggling with life’s difficulties, there is a way out. The Manheim-area has mental health experts who can not only help you get through a rough spot but also plan a future that is brighter than anyone you’ve ever imagined.

20 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Thank you for taking the time to read my profile! I am a licensed counselor in Pennsylvania, and am also a Certified Eating Disorder Specialist. I've worked as a counselor for over 20 years. My first job out of graduate school was working for a foster care agency. It was very challenging work and gave me a great experience. I later worked in a residential treatment program for girls who had experienced trauma and were also dealing with depression, anxiety and family relationship issues. In 2005 I started at the Renfrew Center, which is an eating disorder treatment program. I've been in private practice since 2012. While my practice mainly focuses on working with clients who have eating disorders, I also work with clients who are dealing with marital issues, and general life stresses. I tend to be client focused and focus on relationship dynamics and how they impact my clients. It's important to find each person's strengths and to draw on them especially during times when they are struggling to get through the day. I have also found that helping my clients to communicate better in all areas of their lives has helped them to feel more empowered. Sometimes people just need a safe space to come in a vent and talk about their lives. I can offer that and see the value in providing a safe environment to process all of the events in life, both the big and small. If it's important to you and you want to talk about it, I am happy to listen and support you in your journey.

8 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I specialize in working with adults who are struggling with anxiety, self-esteem, negative body image, and all forms of eating disorders. Clients who come to see me may have been recently diagnosed with an eating disorder or have been struggling for years. Some are unsure if the have an eating disorder, yet struggle with food and their body. It is important to me to facilitate self-empowerment through coping/behavioral skills and strengthening cognitive insight, while honoring that change is hard. Through our therapeutic relationship, I strive to create a safe, collaborative space where we can move together towards healing. I practice from a Health at Every Size framework. I utilize evidence based practice such as, family based treatment and cognitive behavioral therapy, to support adolescents, and adults. Making the decision to see a therapist can be intimidating, but I hope you will take a moment (and maybe a deep breath) to connect and see how I can help.

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Manheim 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 Manheim due to a higher cost of living.

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Manheim 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.

Manheim therapists 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 Manheim 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 Manheim 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 psychotherapist.

With a lot of people in PA, therapists may be booked out with clients. Through the list of profiles above and others within BetterHelp's team, you may be able to find a psychologist within 24 to 48 hours. If you're searching to find a a nearby psychotherapist close to 17545 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help from therapists in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

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

Before seeing your Manheim 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 while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Manheim.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy 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 from a therapist. A Manheim 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 with a Manheim counselor 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 that a counselor can help with.

Is mental health care and therapy with a therapist worth it?

Therapy with a licensed counselor 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 therapist 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 Manheim, 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.

Manheim 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 during telehealth appointments?

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.
