Philadelphia Institute for Individual, Relational & Sex Therapy

Philadelphia Institute for Individual Relational & Sex Therapy is a practice of highly trained and specialized therapists dedicated to helping people gain greater insight and create greater joy in their lives.

With the rapid spread of the COVID-19 virus and the order for social distancing, PhIIRST is committed to the wellbeing of our community. During the COVID-19 emergency, all clinical services at PhIIRST are being provided virtually through online or phone therapy. We are continuing to provide the same high-quality care, utilizing all the technology currently available. Using a telehealth platform allows us an opportunity to provide therapy as close to the in-person therapy experience as you can get from the safety of your home.

We are still taking new clients at this time. Please feel free to contact us or any therapist of your choosing. We will be happy to speak with you.
