Marla R Cobin, PhD, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Philadelphia
My private practice is located in the Chestnut Hill section of Philadelphia and in Center City Philadelphia. I primarily work with adolescents and adults, specializing in women, girls, and the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender populations. My areas of focus include sexuality, trauma and disabilities. I consider myself a client centered, relational, and culturally sensitive psychotherapist.
My doctorate in sexuality gives me the background and ability to specialize in the areas of general sexuality, sexual orientation, gender identity, and sexual dysfunction. I use EMDR to treat both major traumas and more subtle life struggles that contribute to self-esteem difficulties, relationship problems, etc..
I am happy to speak with you by phone for a free consultation. It is important that you find a therapist that you feel comfortable with. My 30 minute consultations are designed to help you determine whether I am a good fit for you and to answer questions you might have about the therapeutic process.
