Hey there! I’m Dr. Darla Timbo. I’m a doctoral-level psychologist and licensed professional counselor in the Commonwealth of PA. 

I opened my private practice, Atlas Counseling Services, in 2011 because I have a heart for helping to heal and educate the people in my community.

As a new therapist, I noticed that there were not many seasoned therapists that looked like me and could relate to my life and the challenges I experienced after graduating from college.

I told myself that whenever I reached the point in my career that I could help other new therapists, I would. And since open Atlas Counseling Services, that's exactly what I've done.

Founder of Atlas Counseling Services
