I have a general psychology practice, but over the past 20 years, with additional training and experience, I have developed a number of specialties. Please click on the topics below for more detailed information:

Clinical Hypnosis
A safe and effective tool for powerful change and increase self-control. We utilize hypnosis in a scientific and ethical manner in which you are always in control. We follow the strict guidelines adopted by the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis (ASCH) and the American Psychological Association with regard to working competently with memory-related issues and physical/sexual abuse. Dr. Eichel is an Approved Consultant in Clinical Hypnosis (advanced certification through ASCH) and a past-President of the Greater Philadelphia Society of Clinical Hypnosis.
Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing is a clinically-proven treatment modality for the treatment and resolution of anxieties, phobias and traumas that may not have responded to "traditional" talk therapy. EMDR can be used with adults, adolescents, and children.
Addictions Counseling
We provide a respectful, whole-person, systems-oriented approach to substance abuse, addiction, and behavioral compulsions (e.g., compulsive overeating, sexual compulsivity/addiction, gambling). We help you discover the tools that work best for you to break the chains of addictive behaviors. Both Dr. Steve Eichel and Dr. Dubrow-Marshall are certified in addictions treatment by the APA College of Professional Psychology. Dr. Eichel has taught addictions counseling on the state and national level, and was on the addictions counseling faculty at Villanova University.
Parenting Coordination

In difficult and contentious divorces and partner splits (often referred to as "high conflict" divorces or breakups) there is a growing movement toward the use of "parenting coordination," a process in which both parties enter into a legal agreement (a "stipulation") that has the effect of a Court Order. (Note: Parenting coordination is NOT coparenting counseling.) The parenting coordinator (PC) may engage in some counseling, but is more often involved in actual decision-making. Dr. Steve Eichel is one of the founders of the Parenting Coordination Council of Delaware, which works directly with Family Court. He has been trained as a PC by, and is a member of, the Association for Family and Conciliation Courts (AFCC), the premier interdisciplinary association of mental health professionals, attorneys and judges involved in family disputes.

Forensic Psychology

We provide forensic examinations and expert witness testimony in custody matters, and in legal cases involving undue influence, malpractice, and/or psychological injury. Both Drs. Steve Eichel and Linda Dubrow-Marshall have testified in several high-profile cases; Dr. Steve Eichel has worked as a court psychologist for Camden County, NJ and has a broad range of forensic experience. His criminal cases have involved capital (death penalty) crimes, competency (insanity defense), sexual abuse and sex offending.

Child & Adolescent Therapy

We have developed a reputation for being able to work with difficult and "resistant" children and teenagers. Dr. Steve Eichel was the former Clinical Director of the St. Francis Homes for Boys, and has been a trainer of child and adolescent therapists since 1986. He works with children and adolescents in individual and conjoint family therapy.

Therapy for Anxiety, Panic Disorder and Agoraphobia

We employ state-of-the-art behavioral strategies (e.g., in vivo desensitization, EMDR, clinical hypnosis) for individuals suffering from anxiety and panic disorders. Dr. Linda Dubrow was trained at the famed Agoraphobia Clinic of Temple University Hospital, and is a Professional Member of the Anxiety Disorders Association of America.

Trauma Counseling

Dr. Steve Eichel has significant experience treating children, adolescents and adults who have experienced trauma, including physical, psychological/emotional and sexual abuse. He is especially experienced in treating complex and chronic trauma (individuals who have experienced multiple traumas over many years). His strengths-focused, gentle approach to treatment is consistent with empirical research on the treatment of trauma and what we know to be "best practice" in this difficult field. Dr. Eichel was instrumental in starting the Trauma Counseling program at Chestnut Hill College, Philadelphia, PA.

Sexuality Counseling & Sex Therapy

Dr. Steve Eichel has treated individuals with sexual disorders and sexual concerns for many years. He is LGBT-supportive, and alternative lifestyle (e.g., polyamory) and "kink" aware/supportive. Dr. Eichel is Full Clinical Member of the Society for Sex Therapy and Research (SSTAR) and an active member of the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors & Therapists (AASECT) and has received training from AASECT-certified sex therapists. He has provided sexuality counseling and sex therapy training to the American Academy of Psychotherapists, the Pennsylvania Psychological Association and the National Association of Forensic Counselors, and is a cofounder of the Delaware Association for Sexology. He is also a Clinical Member of the Association for the Treatment of Sexual Abusers (ATSA).
