The clinicians, who are conveniently located at various locations throughout Philadelphia and the Greater Philadelphia area, customize each client’s care, including helping them connect to other needed services such as psychiatry, psychological testing, and nutritional counseling.

There are a multitude of issues that bring people into psychotherapy. Sometimes it’s a mood or diagnostic issue, like depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorders, or eating disorders, but it can just as frequently be issues like low self-esteem, an existential crisis, or a life circumstance you need help thinking through.

  • Challenges and opportunities of young adulthood
  • Cultural, religious, racial, economic, and ethnicity-based themes
  • Early intervention for the new family
  • Mood and behavior management
