Our Mission

Our mission has always been the same; to offer a safe and supportive environment for growth and change.

The Pennsylvania Gestalt Center, founded in 1973 by Mariah Fenton Gladis, MSS, BCD, is the first center in the Delaware Valley of Pennsylvania to offer Gestalt psychotherapy and training. With the addition of Dr. Dori Middleman and Dr Mark Putnam, the center has built a reputation for its unusually creative and supportive approach which emphasizes appreciation and enhancement of each individual client and student. Our mission has always been the same; to offer a safe and supportive environment for growth and change.

Here at the center, we emphasize the development of keen self-awareness and healthy contact with others, your environment, and most importantly, with yourself. These interactions on all levels – emotional, physical, intellectual, and spiritual- are fundamental to your life as a healthy functioning person. Our unique approach offers you the opportunity to rediscover and integrate lost aspects of yourself and clearly express the thought of who you really are. It’s a challenging and deeply rewarding journey into wholeness.
