Treatment Approach

This counseling practice is based on respect for the whole person. You will find the treatment style is compassionate, approachable, and practical, in a confidential and comfortable environment. While it helps to have someone to talk with, Marjorie goes beyond listening to actively provide feedback, advice and practical strategies based on best practices in depression counseling, ADHD counseling, anxiety counseling, and couples counseling. She draws from a wide range of therapies, including cognitive behavioral therapy counseling (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and mindfulness. Other therapeutic techniques used in this Chester County counseling agency include Psychodynamic Therapy, movement and visualization, and ACT (acceptance and compassion therapy). Together you will create the unique blend of strategies that are most helpful to you. Your therapy will be custom designed based on you and your goals. Marjorie will provide education about the symptoms and causes of emotional distress, mental health disorders, attention problems, and relationship challenges. Together with Marjorie, you will work to build your self-worth, expand your possibilities for positive change, and design workable strategies for you to practice between sessions. You will grow and find new hope for your future.

Payment and Fees

At Ascend Counseling, your privacy and confidentiality are valued; therefore, we do not participate with any insurance companies. You can use your flexible spending account. Also, some clients get reimbursed for part of the cost by using out-of-network benefits. Please call your insurer to see if you have these benefits. The telephone number is on the back of your insurance card listed under “Mental Health and Substance Abuse”.

About Telehealth

Whether due to public health concerns, personal preference, or necessity, counseling meetings can be held using telehealth. We will use an easy-to-use, secure, HIPPA compliant website that requires no special setup. Most insurance companies reimburse for this, so if you have out-of-network benefits, please call your insurance company to verify that they will count telehealth towards your deductible.
