    Your Emotional Wellbeing Starts Here

    Welcome to the Philadelphia Center for Psychotherapy (PCP)



    You are taking the first steps toward healing and emotional wellbeing right now, and that is something worth celebrating! You are one step closer to being on a self-exploration journey that can help you better understand yourself, learn how to change the things in your life that are keeping you stuck, and learn how to accept the things that are not within your control.

    At PCP, we know that it may have taken some effort for you to be here, and we are happy to find you the help that you need with this journey, and make it a meaningful experience. Our goal is not just to help you get unstuck, but also to flourish and live a fulfilling life. This includes working on things like anxiety, depression, trauma, life transitions, ADHD, and more. 

    Please know that we currently might have a waitlist for new patients, but you can still schedule a free consultation with us to get started and be added to the waitlist.

    About Dr. Hider Shaaban, Psy.D.

    I’m a clinical psychologist, the founder, and executive director of PCP.  I think therapy is a very unique space, and to be able to witness the vulnerability and the depth of conversation that are had in this space, is something I find very special and valuable, and it drives me to love this profession.  I also strive to create a flexible, welcoming, and growth-oriented work culture for all of our therapists here at PCP.
