Andrew Wilkins

Our greatest strength is often found in the process of healing our greatest wound.

It can often feel like an impossible task to understand ourselves without first making sense of where we come from and what we have been through. Andrew has always had a strong interest in understanding the nuances of the human condition, seeking to help those he works with achieve their highest aspirations while confronting their most painful and traumatic experiences. As a Philadelphia native, Andrew prides himself on being a warm, relational, and down to earth therapist. Exploratory by nature, it is always his goal to help make sense of how our life experiences have shaped who we are today.

Andrew’s background has specialized in working within a trauma-informed framework where he has helped many individuals and couples make sense of how their life experiences have affected their attachments. He has often found that the deepest connections that stand the test of time are often the most vulnerable ones. By honing his ability to connect with people from all walks of life, he strives to provide the comfort and safety necessary for those he works with to make peace with some of their most deeply guarded experiences.

As a couples therapist, Andrew aims to help each couple greatly improve their communication and teamwork, understand their unique strengths as a couple, and come to know the experiences that have shaped their partner at the deepest level. From Andrew, you can expect someone who is warm, passionate, direct, and engaged.


I live by the philosophy that
meaning can be found in the darkest of places.
I could spend every day
huddled over a chess board with a close friend.
As a therapist, I
always seek to place myself in the shoes of those I work with.
