Colleen Reichmann, PsyD (she/her)- Therapist
Hello there! My name is Dr. Colleen Reichmann. I am a licensed clinical psychologist, and the founder of Wildflower Therapy LLC. I have experience across all levels of eating disorders care, and am incredibly passionate about this work. I also specialize in depression, anxiety, college student-specific mental health, and maternal mental health. I love seeing people across the age spectrum, from high school students, to young adults, to middle aged and beyond. All ages are welcome here.
I draw from feminist theory, and implement Health at Every Size principles in my therapy. Additionally, I believe that the “deeper level work” typically involves identifying and processing systemic social justice aspects of our relationships with food and our bodies.
I did not *ahem* thrive in college (to put it lightly). Because of my own rough history during those years, I have so much empathy for the specific struggles that college students face. I know what it’s like to feel hopeless, and to have to sit across from an older dude who gazes over his glasses and asks question after question without pausing to just talk to you like a damn human. So I have made it my mission to make therapy a different experience for you. Our time together will feel safe, easy, and you WILL feel seen.
In my work with mothers, I focus on fostering a space that feels safe to share their most secret and painful thoughts- this includes mothers of children who are no longer here on earth, folks who are mothers in their hearts without a child, and mothers of living children of all ages. I want all mothers to know that they do not have to feel hopeless or alone- and I help them to step into their authentic selves and release comparisons.
Important things for you to know: I am a Philadelphia enthusiast. I am a big fan of bangs, baking, and the color mustard yellow. I have two dogs- Ollie and Zooey (who are also more than happy to make an appearance during our sessions) I have a son named Ezra, and a daughter named Marigold-the hardest and absolute best parts of my life.
Ashton Whitmore, LPC (she/her)- Therapist
I believe in a trauma-informed approach that views clients through various lenses, and considers social, cultural, and systematic influences. I offer an inclusive space that explores how identity, oppression, and/or marginalization plays a role in one’s perception of themselves and their outlook on healing and recovery. As a mindfulness-based therapist, my perspective focuses on your present experience as a practice that supports you in cultivating an awareness of your thoughts, reactions, and relational patterns.
I am a HAES-oriented therapist who enjoys working with folks who struggle with body image an/or disordered eating, and I honor bodies of all shapes and sizes. Additionally, as a queer-identified therapist I am looking forward to offering gender affirming, compassionate and comprehensive care to historically misunderstood and pathologized people in the LGBTQIA2S+ community.
I recently relocated to Philadelphia from the mountains of Denver, Colorado, and am enjoying exploring my new city and learning about the community. When I’m not working, I am most likely taking my dog for hikes in the woods.
Samantha (Sam) Palmer, LPC (she/her)- Therapist
Hi everyone! I’m Sam-a professional counselor who offers a safe, nonjudgmental space for you to discover and embrace your truest self. I utilize a person-centered, strength-based, and direct approach to therapy. I consider the importance of all aspects of one’s identity and how that plays a role in the therapeutic relationship. I earned my Master’s degrees in Counseling and Mental Health Services as well as Professional Counseling from the University of Pennsylvania.
I am a HAES-aligned therapist who specializes in treating individuals with eating disorders and body image concerns as well as substance misuse. I also have experience working with individuals experiencing depression, anxiety, trauma, personality disorders, and relationship difficulties. I work with adolescents, adults, and families. And, as a former collegiate rower, I have a true passion for working with athletes.
In my free time, I enjoy ignoring the advice of TLC, and chasing waterfalls with my black Lab, Nike, as well as hiking, biking, and scuba diving. I am also known to embark on sweet adventures in the kitchen baking my signature chocolate chip cookies and cinnamon rolls.

Erika Muller (she/her) -Virtual Assistant
Hello! My name is Erika Muller. I am the virtual assistant for Wildflower Therapy. I have a bachelor’s degree in English, Professional Writing, and Psychology. It took me a while to decide what I wanted “to be” when I was in college, and it wasn’t until graduate school that I realized I wanted to bring my love for people, reading, writing, and learning together and enter the world of education. This led to me becoming a high school English teacher. My master’s degree is in Instruction and Curriculum, where I spent a large part of my program studying, researching, and writing about trauma-informed teaching and curriculum creation, and classroom, school, and systemic-level diversity, equity, and inclusion.
My own personal journey and continually unfolding life story has made me passionate about advocating for those who have navigated or are navigating disordered eating, body image concerns, infertility, motherhood, and more. I have a deep desire to connect with, understand, and truly know people. I am honored to be able to combine my love for people, my desire to understand others’ journeys, my passion for continued learning, and my love for writing into my role as a virtual assistant at Wildflower.
On a good day, you can find me hanging out with my family, spending time with some of my favorite kids at a local community center, reading, writing, baking, enjoying a long walk outside, or drinking coffee. On a great day, you will find me doing multiple of the above activities all at once, not cleaning my house, and listening to instrumental Christmas music (yes, even – especially? – in the summer). We can unpack that later. 🙂
