Organization Profile: Connect Counseling opens office in Gettysburg

The Lancaster-based therapy practice Connect Counseling has opened a Gettysburg office at 18 Carlisle St., offering both in-person and telehealth appointments.

With locations in Lancaster, Carlisle, Harrisburg, and now Gettysburg, Connect Counseling employs nine therapists and provides individual, couples, and family therapy using a wide range of treatment approaches.

“We’re pleased to be joining the Gettysburg and Adams County community,” said Connect Counseling founder and clinical supervisor Michael Hoober. “We’ve found that people are eager to address the stressors in their worlds and move on to living more full, happy, and productive lives. Connect Counseling can help fill this need for quality mental health counseling in the Gettysburg area.”

Gettysburg-based Connect Counseling therapist Cheryl Sornson spent twenty years as a school counselor before joining the group. She appreciates the team’s positive approach. “What sets Connect Counseling apart is that we don’t start by seeing you as sick or broken,” she said. “We start by helping you identify your inner resilience and work with you to help you regain balance as you work through the difficulties in your life. We’re here to help you truly flourish.”

The therapists at Connect Counseling come from different backgrounds and employ a variety of treatment modalities, including insight-oriented, cognitive-behavioral (CBT), eco-systemic, attachment-oriented, and applied positive human developmental perspectives. There is a Spanish-language therapist on staff, as well as therapists trained in play therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and solution-focused brief therapy.

Some Connect Counseling therapists accept insurance, while others do not. All will facilitate the filing of insurance claims, and all will consider a sliding scale for clients with financial need.
