Anxiety. Depression. Life Stressors. Disordered Eating.
We can Help.

Welcome! I’m Ellie Herman, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, and Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor. I opened Step By Step Counseling LLC in order to provide quality online, or virtual, therapy services to the Central PA area and beyond.

Our therapists, Ellie and Jennie, are dedicated to person-centered care, emphasizing your strengths in managing transitions and well-being.  In practice, we rely on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solutions Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Eating Disorders, Intuitive Eating, Mindfulness, Feminist Theory, and a few other strength-based modalities.


We believe in gender-affirming, weight-neutral treatment that is rooted in the Health At Every Size paradigm.

“Do I have anxiety?”


The answer is – “probably.” Most people experience a degree of anxiety during their lives. 

Eating Disorders

“Do I have an eating disorder?”


Eating disorders are complex mental health diagnoses and considering the criteria for diagnosis can be confusing.



“Maybe I’m depressed?”


Most of us have had this thought at some point when we feel low, sad, or stuck.
