Andrew Kohl

(MA, LPC)

About Me

I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Pennsylvania with over 13 years of experience working as a mental health therapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including but not limited to: depression, anxiety, autism, impulsivity, mood issues, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD and ADHD. I have also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma and/or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating each person with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and accepting someone in their entirety. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, Gestalt & Adlerian approaches to counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

Change is difficult. It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Andrew has an uncanny intuition and ability to read people. He offers fresh reasonable perspectives and insights. It it obvious that he cares. Andrew is warm while remaining professional.

Andrew has helped me to change my life and my mindset. His patience, kindness, and dedication to helping people is truly inspiring. He provides you with very helpful resources, is generous with his time, and he also checks in every few days which reinforces that he cares. I can tell that he is so passionate about what he does, and I can’t imagine a month going by without working with him. My life is so much better because I met him. It’s easy to talk with him about any issues and he always makes me feel comfortable when discussing deeper problems. I almost gave up on finding a counselor before I met him, and I’m so glad that I didn’t. Thank you Andrew!

Andrew has been very open and understanding to my needs. He took the time to help me identify my issues and has provided me with tips and strategies on how to better handle some of my situations. He also checks in regularly to make sure I am supported. I feel very comfortable and supported with Andrew.

Andrew's counseling style is the epitome of the personal touch! He is smart, professional, caring, and compassionate. He shares his professional knowledge in such a way that you feel like you are talking to a trusted friend which makes you feel comfortable talking about deeply personal subjects. When I was feeling very depressed, he was there with encouraging words to help me start to think more positively and he messages you every couple days, just to check in with you!! With his shared personal experiences, advice and goal setting techniques I feel like he went above and beyond for me EVERY session!

I cannot say enough good things about this counselor. I'm already making progress in just a few weeks. He's very encouraging and aware of my issues.

My teen was really hesitant to participate in counseling but since he started working with Andrew he has become more open to it!

Andrew is an amazing person who is honest and caring about his patients. He was able to help me through some tough times in my life and keep me focused on making myself better. He was very easy to talk to which is hard for me to do. I felt extremely comfortable telling him what was going on in my life and he was able to find solutions to everything I was struggling with. He helped me establish a way to communicate how I'm feeling in a way that my wife could understand in a very short amount of time. He was always willing to work with my busy schedule to ensure that we had a meeting when I needed it the most. He always listened with open ears and NEVER made me feel like I was just another person he had to deal with, which was a tremendous help to my mental health. He was always quick to respond to my messages and would always check in with me if he didn't hear from me for a few days, and I must say that helped me out a lot! If you're considering using Andrew he comes very highly recommended by me and the countless others he has helped. I can not thank you enough, and I am so extremely grateful to have had your help through all of this. 10/10!

I have had like 3 sessions with Andrew. So far I’ve really enjoyed it; and his life analogies are so relatable to me!

Written by E.V. on Nov 16, 2020 after counseling with Andrew for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, grief, and coping with life changes

I've been working with Andrew for just over 2 months now and it's been fantastic. I remember our first phone session - in the space of about 15 minutes, Andrew understood my situation better than anyone else has in the past year and a half. He put into words how I have been feeling better than I could have done myself. He hits the nail on the head consistently, and I haven't felt this understood or supported in a very long time. I'm a constant work in progress but I feel confident about the future knowing Andrew's got my back. I'd highly recommend him to anyone.

We really appreciate Mr. Kohl’s time with Noah. He’s patient, kind, and seems to care. Noah was very hesitant to contact a councilor- so while they haven’t covered much ground yet due to warming up - we’re already starting to see his reluctance reduce. And that feels like the first big step.

Andrew was everything that I need(ed). He was compassionate and very knowledgeable about my circumstances. He was 100% ok with scheduling sessions via text as I was feeling too overwhelmed to participate by phone/video. I hope to resubscribe soon, and if I do I will seek out Andrew.

Written by B.R. on Sep 22, 2020 after counseling with Andrew for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and anger management

Andrew is a fantastic human being and professional. I've tried therapy a couple of times but was yet to click with someone to the point where I feel actually chill and relaxed about opening up. He's very understanding and open minded, and I'd recommend him to anyone looking for some excellent insights into how their mind works.

Andrew has been the person I needed. I have been searching for a therapist for 2 years.

I've had 2 sessions so far. They have been wonderful. He truly listens to me. I had counseling before and they didn't seem to really ask questions ask much. Because he's asked more I feel more confident we will be able to get to the root of things. So that we can improve things and learn to cope. He is definitely very caring and make me feel welcomed as well. Which has made opening up about some things so far a bit easier. When I message him he is prompt with that as well. I am looking forward to continuing to work with him.
