Joseph Salerno Dr. Joseph D. Salerno is a compassionate psychologist located on Walnut Street in Philadelphia, who offers individual psychotherapy to adolescents and adults.
Raffaella Braga Originally from Italy, I trained to be a psychologist in both Italy and the USA; I believe this gave me the advantage of acquiring a culture-based understanding of mental challenges. I work within a psychodynamic therapeutic approach to help adults and children understand the thoughts, feelings, and conflicts which may be at the root of their symptoms.
Aparna Sagaram Asking for help can feel uncomfortable. If you are first generation or an immigrant, there is an added layer of shame as we are taught to keep problems within the family. As a first generation South Asian, I understand this struggle. Together, we can help you feel less alone and better understand being part of multiple cultures.
Josh Zlatkus Josh is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Pennsylvania. He joined the field in 2014 because of an interest and passion for understanding health and happiness. He works best with people who are trying therapy for the first time, or have had the experience of being too intelligent for their therapist.
Mandy Schaller Throughout my studies at James Madison University & Virginia Commonwealth University and almost 20 years in clinical social work— my passion for brain health continues to expand.  Family systems theory has been the foundation to looking at human behavior, addictions, dis-ease and now epigenetics & rewiring our DNA, even changing the brain!
I LOVE partnering with & educating clients in looking at behaviors of the past & present, ideals for the future to create manageable, positive & lasting results.
I look forward to mental health care losing its stigma and the brain gaining recognition as another organ we have to care for & openly address if experiencing dis-ease.  Open discussion and maintaining human connection is so important in healing the body both physically & mentally.  I have been practicing tele counseling in recent years as a way to make therapy more accessible & convenient while still seeing clients face to face in the Chestnut Hill area of Philadelphia.  I feel very fortunate to be part of bringing mental health care out of the dark ages and getting to see others feeling lighter.
