Colleen Reichmann, PsyD
Hello there! My name is Dr. Colleen Reichmann. I am a licensed clinical psychologist, and the founder of Therapy for Eating Disorders and Body Image. I have experience across all levels of eating disorders care, and am incredibly passionate about this work. I also enjoy working with folks struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, and self-injury. I specialize in working with high school and college-aged students (but I love seeing people across the age spectrum).
I draw heavily from feminist theory, and implement Health at Every Size principles in my therapy for eating disorders. Additionally, I believe that the “deeper level work” typical involves identifying and processing systemic social justice aspects of our relationships with food and our bodies.
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)
And the most important thing for you to know? I believe in you.
Ashton Whitmore, LPCC
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.
