Hello! I am so glad you stopped by and excited to get to work with you. My approach is always collaborative with each client. Each client is unique and so should each approach to tackle individual challenges. When we think about going to or starting the therapeutic process it is not an easy decision to begin, however, it can be so rewarding to make the changes or achieve goals set with real-time progress and with support. I am honest with all of my clients and understand that the therapeutic relationship takes time to establish and want clients to realize that real change takes time and is never a sprint to the finish line.

Counseling is a space where you can explore, process, heal and grow. By being vulnerable we can allow ourselves the space to reflect on who we are now and where we have come from. I believe that we deserve a space where we can feel safe, comfortable and free from judgement. In this space, we can take out some of the boxes that are stored away and discover how we can let go of what no longer serves us while creating new ways of being and relating to ourselves, others, and the world around us .

Let’s face it, life isn’t always easy. Just the fact that you’re reading this shows that you’re looking for some relief, some answers. The good news is that you don’t have to carry your burden alone. By sharing it, and learning more skillful ways of dealing with your life’s obstacles, you’ll soon realize that there truly is a light at the end of the tunnel. I have a profound respect for the strength of the human spirit and am often in awe of my own clients as they rise above what's holding them back and learn to find their own empowerment.

My name is Dr. Steven Mehl and I have been a licensed Clinical Psychologist in the state of Pennsylvania since July of 2016. I have worked primarily in college counseling centers as well as in nursing and rehabilitation facilities. In addition, I have worked for over a decade with adults of varying abilities who carry a diagnosis of developmental (autism spectrum) and/or intellectual disabilities. I have also gained some experience working with individuals struggling with drug and alcohol addiction while working at an outpatient treatment center. I have worked with individuals of all different ages and backgrounds and have enjoyed helping them address different psychological and general life issues. I practice primarily cognitive-behavioral (CBT) therapy, while also utilizing some alternative approaches. As a therapist, I strive to help clients by first establishing a sense of their background and aspects of their current motivation. It is this motivation that will help to propel the therapeutic process forward and ensure that you, the client, are the one who is in control.
