HANNA BERLETH, PSY.D.
Thank you for visiting my site. Whether you are new to therapy or have seen a number of therapists over the years, I would like the opportunity to help you reach your goals.
I am a Licensed Psychologist who specializes in providing individual therapy to older adolescents and adults. I earned my doctorate at The George Washington University in Washington, D.C. and trained for three years in Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy at The Washington School of Psychiatry. I completed both my internship and post-doctoral fellowship at The University of Pennsylvania Counseling and Psychological Services. In addition to college counseling, I have worked in outpatient community mental health and at a center for trauma survivors.
I believe therapy is less about becoming someone new and more about becoming who you truly are. We all develop ways of dealing with life’s difficulties. Sometimes we realize these ways of dealing are also hurting us, our success, our relationships. I specialize in helping you to change these patterns and in assisting you to have a life that is genuinely yours, not one dictated by old ideas and habits that no longer really serve you.
I have experience working with a wide variety of concerns, including anxiety, depression, difficulty feeling and expressing emotions, relational and family conflicts, trauma, sexual abuse and assault, loss, and academic and professional stressors.
The style of therapy I practice is active and collaborative, focusing not only on intellectual insight but in helping you to have a new, meaningful experience. I believe a good therapy relationship, like any good relationship, allows us to feel seen, heard, and compassionately challenged to grow and create the change we long for in our lives.
PAYMENT AND INSURANCE
I am in network for Highmark PremierBlue Shield and work with other insurance companies out-of-network. Out-of-network service may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. The following questions are helpful to ask when discussing your out-of-network mental health coverage with your insurance company:
Do I have out-of-network mental health insurance benefits?
Is a referral required from a primary care physician to see an out-of-network provider?
Do I need pre-authorization before seeing an out-of-network provider?
Do I have a deductible and has it been met?
How many sessions per calendar year does my plan cover?
What is the coverage amount for an out-of-network therapy session?
A receipt will be provided at the end of each session to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.
Cash, check, or credit card are accepted for payment at the time of service.
Please notify me within 24 hours if you cannot attend your appointment. Late cancellations incur the full cost of the unattended session.
