After experiencing multiple losses, with three of them sudden and traumatic, I had become overwhelmed with grief, anxiety, depression and PTSD. I was referred to Samaritan Counseling by my pastor. I called them and spoke to a kind and understanding person who set me up with one of their therapists. Casey K. called me and spoke with me over the phone to determine my needs and to set up our first meeting. She emailed me forms to fill out before I arrived. I liked her efficiency. Having never been in counseling before I didn't know what to expect. Casey was very professional yet very caring and warm and friendly. She earned my trust right away. I felt confident in sharing my grief and pain with her. I wasn't sure she could fix me because I felt so broken, but over several months of meeting with Casey, I have been restored to a new and improved self. Casey gave me insights into how I got to the point I had let myself get to. She taught me to express my feelings and emotions and not to let them build up as was my habit in the past. I learned about mindfulness and being present in the moment. I've learned to open up and share with friends. I'm confident now that if life throws me another curve ball in the future, I will be able to step up to the plate and hit it right out of the park. Thanks to Casey K and Samaritan Counseling Center.

Samaritan Counseling Center is a wonderful resource for people in southwestern PA. The staff is extremely professional and caring. I love that the counseling and educational programs use the resources of faith. The holistic approach to achieve spiritual, emotional, and physical well-being just makes sense. The pre-marriage counseling is definitely something I will encourage my children to participate in. Having the Client AId fund available to assist financially relieves stress at a time when people are already struggling.
