Mariah Fenton Gladis

Mariah Fenton Gladis is founder and clinical director of the Pennsylvania Gestalt Center for Psychotherapy and Training. She is internationally recognized for the sensitive and creative way she practices the art of Gestalt. Her book Tales of a Wounded Healer was chosen as an Amazon Editors’ Best Books of 2014. 

She has more than 35 years experience as a psychotherapist and Gestalt trainer, having trained hundreds of professionals and conducted workshops throughout the United States and Europe.

In 1981, she was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), more commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Since the day she was given a 10 percent chance of surviving ALS two years, Gladis has gone on to win dozens of honors and awards, including the Living Legacy Award—joining previous recipients Eleanor Roosevelt, Maya Angelou, and Mother Theresa. 

Through her personal healing odyssey, Gladis has accessed a wealth of intuitive wisdom, love, and compassion that has deeply sensitized her to the healing needs of others. As she tells her clients, “I may have physical limitations, but I am totally present with you in this room.”
