Mark Bingel-McKillips

Mark Bingel-McKillips, LCSW

Philosophy of Care 

Mark is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Philadelphia, who holds licenses in both  Pennsylvania and California. He has 20 years of experience helping children and  families work through challenges impacting their health and happiness. He spent most  of his career working for a nonprofit agency that continues to serve trauma impacted  children and families in the San Francisco, Bay Area. It was through this work that Mark grew to understand both the grave impact of trauma and the healing power of  psychotherapy.  

Mark works from a variety of therapies to best match a child’s needs. Some of these  include cognitive behavioral therapy, narrative therapy, play therapy, and gestalt  therapy. Regardless of the therapeutic orientation, he believes a child’s personal story is  the key to change. When children can author strength based personal narratives, they  are able to find the strength to overcome their doubts, fears, and worry.  

Mark believes every child carries within him or her the power to change and heal. He  seeks to help children access this power through a safe, comforting, and expressive  experience.
