Dr. Jason Hutchings

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Welcome! I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist conveniently located in Center City Philadelphia. I provide psychotherapy to adolescents and adults searching to find a deeper sense of meaning in their lives and who may be struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship difficulties, questions of identity, artistic expression, and existential/spiritual concerns. In addition, I work with couples to help clarify relationship goals and improve communication. Whatever your search entails, it would my pleasure to work with you.


Individual Therapy

The common thread of suffering runs through all of our lives.  Symptoms, and other manifestations of our psychological life, contain important messages. When correctly deciphered, these messages and symbols can help guide us towards balance. Deciphering the symbols of the psyche, via thoughts, feelings, memories, dreams and lived experience, allows us to  relate to ourselves and others in a meaningful and fulfilling way. 

You may be seeking therapy for many reasons.

It may be that an external life event has left you feeling disoriented, such as:

  • a relationship has ended

  • a loved one has died

  • an illness redefines your life

  • job stress has taken its toll

  • artistic expression has become dulled or performance hindered

It may be that you are confronted by an inner feeling of emptiness or agitation that is difficult to ignore, for example:  

  • days pass without feeling much engagement or meaning in relationships or life’s activities

  • fear and anxiety grip you as you look into an uncertain future

  • anger and irritability rob you of well being

  • shame makes it difficult to meet life with confidence

  • pondering spiritual or existential questions, search for meaning

As a psychologist, my goal is to provide a warm and collaborative environment as a foundation to helping understand your unique thoughts, feelings, and experiences.
