Marie C. Ryan, M.S.W., L.S.W.
Marie is a Licensed Social Worker with a Master’s degree in Social Work from Marywood University. She is a Gestalt-trained therapist with certification from the Pennsylvania Gestalt Center. Gestalt therapy is a lively and holistic experiential approach to healing and personal growth, emphasizing the development of awareness — emotional, physical, intellectual and spiritual. This approach seeks to develop the capacity to make healthy contact with one’s self, others and the environment. Marie is also certified in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Trauma-Informed-Treatment, and has a certificate of completion in On Being a Spiritual Nurture – which focuses on compassionate accompaniment to those in transition or crisis. She takes a holistic approach to counseling, incorporating alternative approaches with attention to the mind-body connection. Marie enjoys working with all ages, from age 6 through the senior years.
