Kahl Counseling and Consultation Online

Meeting You Wherever You Are

Kahl Counseling is located out of Berks County PA and provides services through teletherapy online. Counseling can help you if you have specific issues to work on such as depression, anxiety, relationship problems, and other concerns. Counseling can also help you if you’re feeling stuck or overwhelmed by current life stressors, or have been struggling with long-term life challenges.

We have recently moved all of our services online. All of our therapists are experienced in providing teletherapy. All sessions are 53 to 60 minutes long. We use a HIPAA-compliant teleconferencing service which allows us to provide dependable, confidential online therapy at no extra cost to you. Please be prepared for your online session by having a computer, laptop, or other device that has a camera and a microphone, and have a meeting place where you have privacy and can speak freely without being overheard. Unless your session is paid for by your insurance, credit card payments for teletherapy are taken by your therapist at the end of each session. We are happy to provide you with a free online ten-minute consultation if you would like to see what meeting online would be like. For your convenience, telephone sessions are also available. Please see our team profiles below to learn more about what each of us has to offer you.

Our Other Services

Letters for Transgender Clients

Kahl Counseling provides letters for transgender clients who are ready to go on hormones or will be undergoing associated surgeries. We care about the safety and comfort of our transgender clients and we strive to meet the WPATH Standards of Care. Under most circumstances, we require twelve sessions before providing letters for hormones and six months of therapy before providing letters for surgeries. Most insurances will cover the cost of therapy for transgender clients but, when the time comes, the actual letter requires a one-time out-of-pocket expense of $100, which may be paid with cash, check, or credit card. This out-of-pocket expense includes the writing of the letter, faxing it to the medical facility which will be providing your hormones prescription or surgery, and providing you with a copy if you would like one for your records.

Keynote and other Speaking Engagments

Polly Kahl is a veteran public speaker as well as an experienced guest on radio and television shows and at conferences, including providing keynote addresses. Topics she is experienced in speaking on include trauma, overcoming childhood abuse, hoarding, and working with transgender clients. She would be happy to create an individualized keynote or other presentation to meet your group’s needs.

Supervision for Prospective LPCs

Our therapist Paula Bellavance is experienced in providing individual and group supervision for prospective LPCs who are accumulating hours toward licensure. Fees are negotiable. Group supervision may also be available.  

Fees and Insurance


We accept most major insurances as well as private pay, also known as “out of pocket” payments. If you choose to use your insurance, we’ll verify your coverage prior to your first visit and will inform you of any deductibles or copays. Some clients choose to pay out of pocket rather than utilizing their insurance. There are several advantages to not using your insurance. When you pay out of pocket you can see any therapist you’d like to see rather than being limited to therapists in network with your insurance company. When you pay out of pocket your therapist is not required to give you a clinical diagnosis which may become part of your permanent record with your insurance company. And with private pay, your insurance company will also not have legal access to your counseling records, including your therapeutic session notes. Kahl Counseling offers two out-of-pocket fees. Our full fee is $135 and we have a reduced hardship rate of $110 per session. Rather than asking for your pay stubs or for personal information about your finances, we go by the honor system, allowing you to choose which fee is affordable to you.
