Occupational Therapy Fredericksburg, VA | Mary Mannhardt

Mary Mannhardt, M.Ed (Counselor In-Residence)

I’m Mary Mannhardt, a Christian counselor specializing in individual therapy with a private practice in Fredericksburg, VA. I graduated fromLiberty University and Georgia State and have been a practicing therapist for more than 15 years. My areas of expertise are mood and eating disorders, and relationship issues.

I wrote the book “Dark Marathon” which shares my personal story of how I ended my career as a world-class runner with a suicide attempt that left me a paraplegic. Through listening to God’s voice I worked through my issues and am now helping others to overcome the areas of life that hold them captive. I’ve spoken on National TV shows including The Today Show and NBC News Tonight. Additionally, I speak nationally on the topics of eating disorders, depression, and suicide.

As an interactive, solution-focused therapist, my therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each of my clients. With compassion and understanding, I work with each individual to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.

I believe the problems that direct clients into counseling are emotional, physical, and spiritual. Therefore, the whole person must be addressed and treated as a unique and complex individual. As a Christian therapist I help clients get to the root causes of their distress and assist them to find answers by using solution focused therapy. While some long-term therapy is a necessity I take pride in helping people set goals and objectives to find answers to their issues and struggles. Discover the hidden strengths in your weakness and find an inner peace that brings stability amidst your storm.

I counsel adults, adolescents, couples, & families. I direct clients to make life altering changes & decisions, that can redirect the negative path they may be traveling.I believe no matter how desperate or hopeless a situation may be, that with faith, all things are possible & a crisis is an opportunity for growth.

I can guarantee the most affordable counseling rate in the Fredericksburg area. I understand the financial hardships of therapy. Therefore, I work with clients to establish a treatment plan that can be effectively budgeted into your income. Don't delay in getting the help you need in facing your difficulties.
