Professional statement

Gretchen Boehm is a Licensed Professional Counselor with a private practice in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where she supports adolescents, young adults/adults, and families who strive to create positive momentum in their lives. Many of her clients arrive to treatment feeling the weight of their emotional pain that may resemble conflict in relationships, self-doubt or self-criticism and/or experiencing dissatisfaction with their position in life. Gretchen prioritizes her client's needs in exploring the barriers maintaining 'status quo' to promote opportunity for positive change and a greater sense of life satisfaction.

Treatment with Gretchen will explore how external factors influence client's thoughts, feelings and behaviors. You can expect Gretchen to gently challenge core beliefs and value systems that perpetuate life's uncomfortable patterns. In turn, she will guide clients toward the development of action plans that support different responses to stress, increasing achievement and mastery over life situations. Gretchen takes pride in raising client awareness while exploring strategies and techniques that fit each client's unique set of needs.

Gretchen maintains a supportive and interactive (team-based) approach to therapy. She is respectful of client goals and will end most sessions with an action plan or homework assignment to enhance growth and development. Gretchen views her clients as powerful forces of change as they are a major part of the solution. Fostering a non-judgmental and safe environment, clients can feel at ease with their therapeutic journey of self-discovery.

Gretchen offers online therapy to residents across the state of Pennsylvania. With flexible scheduling options, she is mindful of the busy lifestyle. Remaining holistic in her approach, Gretchen is sensitive to client needs and remains ever-present in her work with others.


Message to clients

Let's face it, 'Adulting' is challenging. Managing life's twists and turns can be anxiety provoking and exhausting. Could it be that fear of failure is keeping you at arm's length of your goals. Perhaps you may feel trapped by circumstance and alone in this struggle. Maybe you are consumed with pleasing other people and cringe at the thought of disappointment. You may feel the weight of this process being on 'repeat' is far too overwhelming and crave something...anything different. However, what does that difference look like?

Imagine a life of emotional freedom, where confidence and calm are integrated, daily. Envision being empowered and secure in your forward movement in this world. What if this was possible? Who would you be then?

I'm here to reassure you that this person within already exists. You own this strength and are capable of a different path. Together, we can reach this warrior of change and arrive at your desired place in the world. If you're reading this, it's about damn time to call the shots and be the beautiful, strong, courageous person you already are. I welcome you to this process and eagerly await celebrating your victories along the way.
