What we're about

My name's Alexei. I'm a psychotherapist who moved to West Philadelphia about two years ago and is in love with this neighborhood and this city. I am starting this Society with the following goals:

1. To bring together therapists and counselors of all stripes in the spirit of cheerful friendship and bonhomie, thrilling conversation, mutual upliftment, shared knowledge, exchange of referrals and exchanges of joy.

2. To bring healers of all stripes into deep conversation with the psychotherapist community, as well as with each other: yoga instructors, massage therapists, acupuncturists, practitioners of traditional and modern medicine, nurses, psychiatrists – all students and practitioners of the healing arts. Because wellbeing is holistic, together we can help our communities in a way we never could alone, while having way more fun along the way. :D

In the beginning, we will simply gather, eat, drink and be merry, get to know each other while discussing things that excite and fascinate us. As the group grows, we can offer each other teaching, organize workshops , go on trips, invite speakers – do as we please in the pursuit of a better world for self and other.

The meetup is open to folks outside of West Philadelphia as well. The caravanserai welcomes all.

Upcoming events (5+)

Drinks, Treats, Therapy and Healing at the Vietnam Cafe

We will gather, drink good drinks, eat yummy treats and listen and speak. Our conversations often turn to: interesting and / or challenging cases, the philosophy of healing, how to transform the national landscape so that people can be happy and well, the integration of alternative therapies with traditional psychotherapy, etc. Really, anything that has to do with healing is fair game. We also spend a bunch of time just having fun and getting to know one another. As long as it's positive and real, it's a go. Ask the host / hostess for the therapist group and they will lead you there. :) Any questions, shoot me a text at[masked]
