Arin Schein
Self Pay Rate: $99

Arin Schein, LPC

Philosophy of Care

Arin Schein believes that therapy is a partnership where the therapist facilitates the change and growth that a client seeks to make. She assists people in developing self-worth and self-awareness. Arin also works with clients to establish boundaries and recognize barriers to success and happiness such as depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, and overall negative patterns of thinking. Once someone learns to love and accept themselves, it becomes easier to have healthy interpersonal relationships.

Arin specializes in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and helps people recognize emotions and change negative thinking patterns by challenging irrational thoughts. Arin recognizes that each person’s journey and barriers are different and she uses a person-centered, trauma-informed approach to facilitate clients’ personal growth. She meets people where they are and helps them create attainable goals to recognize success and build self-worth.

Arin is truly invested in the happiness and success of each client and will work alongside individuals who are equally invested in confronting their personal barriers to success and happiness. She is genuinely interested in helping clients to recognize and change unhealthy patterns to reach their highest level of self-love and fulfillment.

Gregory Salmon
Self Pay Rate: $199:Intake $149:Follow-up

Gregory Salmon, PMHNP

Philosophy of Care

My philosophy of care as a psych nurse practitioners direct me toward diagnose and treating mental illness through psychotherapy, psychopharmacology, case management, and clinical supervision. I as a provider function independently to meet patient care needs within my scope of practice. Psychiatric Nursing to me is all about the relationship you establish with your patients, understanding them from their perspective and asking them what they think is going on with their health or what has been changing in their body and mind. I like to ask, how do you feel? What do you think? Asking these questions gives me a door to perceive patients in a holistic manner. It helps me as a psychiatric NP understand if patient’s symptoms are just physical or are psychological. Someone may be experiencing a lot of life stressor and not eating right, or not drinking a lot of water. As a result they start experiencing a lot of headache. Instead of thinking it is a migraine and heavily medicating the patient the best treatment at times is simply to encourage the patient to think positively and demonstrate relaxation techniques and they will do better in every aspect of life including health.

Jill Lamar

Jill Lamar, LPC

Philosophy of Care

Jill Lamar is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Pennsylvania. Jill’s specialties include faith-based counseling, helping clients with addictions and other compulsive behaviors, dual-diagnosis, anxiety, depression, grief, couples therapy, and working with adolescents adjusting to the challenges of life and the changes they bring, as well as academic underperformance. It should be noted that although she takes therapy quite seriously, Jill’s sense of humor is legendary, and often creates an inimitable, meaningful and warm connection between her and her clients.

She completed her Bachelor's degree in Economics at Arizona State University, and received her Master's degree in Counseling from Dallas Theological Seminary. Jill draws on the wisdom of her life experience, a drive to pursue the truth in each client’s story, and a passionate desire to see the broken restored in working with her clients. She has a God-given ability to listen, hear, and interpret what her clients tell her (both verbally and nonverbally), and is both process- and goal-driven, unafraid to be direct in showing her clients the way forward. It hurts her heart to see her clients deceived or convinced to believe lies about themselves (or lies they’ve been told about themselves).

She enjoys helping her clients explore new coping skills, like erecting appropriate boundaries in their relationships, or learning how to better manage their anxiety or anger. She takes great pleasure in seeing clients discover new things about and strengths in themselves. She has worked with the blind, the homeless and at-risk populations for more than a dozen years, and is adept at showing clients how to carefully work through the perceived wreckage of their lives to craft a more hopeful narrative that provides them with a renewed sense of purpose and confidence.

Rachel Lee-Nigsch, LCSW, Med

In this day and age it is so hard to be seen and heard, to know if we are “normal” and “fit in with society.”  If you are having issues navigating troubled thoughts, unmotivated to reach your goals, concerns with substance abuse, or relationship/ marriage problems, I would love the opportunity to work with you.  I meet clients where they are and identify what concerns have brought you to therapy. We come up with a plan together to help you reach your goals in therapy. I have experience working with individual clients, couples, adolescents and young children. I use multiple interventions and identify those specifically to meet each clients needs. 

A little about myself, my education concentrated on counseling and I earned a Masters in Social work and Education in Human Sexuality.  Where I focused on identified sexual functioning issues, and working with relationship problems with couples primarily concentrating on sexual concerns. In addition my education focused on working with the LGBTQIA populations.   I worked extensively with clients who have experienced trauma, PTSD, parenting and issues with children. I have experience running women’s groups, sex education, early recovery, and couples groups. My theoretical orientation is psycho dynamic, ego psych, family systems therapy.  I use interventions such as CBT, DBT, motivational interviewing, trauma informed and strength based. I currently hold my LCSW in the state of PA and have been working and living with my family in the Center City area since 2015.
