Chimère Holmes

Chimère brings a diverse array of experience and skillsets to the realm of psychotherapy. An ordained Reverend as well as licensed counselor, Chimère likes to consider herself a theologian first and social scientist second. She obtained her first Master’s degree in Theology and Pastoral Ministry from Villanova University before obtaining a secondary Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling from the University of Pennsylvania. A member of the American Counseling Association as well as the American Association of Pastoral Counselors, Chimère offers years of pastoral training and clinical acumen. She garnered her skills from specialized trainings and accreditations through the Council for Relationships and the Philadelphia School of Psychoanalysis.

Chimère enjoys working with individuals, couples, and families, and has a heart for millennials, whom she believes are all too often misunderstood. An ally of the LGBTQ community, a significant portion of Chimère’s work is dedicated to helping young men and women improve their self-esteem, live a life of social justice, and reconcile previous religious hurts. 

A session with Chimère is a personalized hour that she considers sacred—it’s all about you! A combination of empathy, humor, positivity, mindfulness, and homework combine to encourage you to “feel-deal-heal,” Chimère believes in establishing a working relationship built on trust and deep understanding. The therapeutic alliance soon becomes a professional partnership that you will jointly design as you successfully reach your personal goals one conversation and one ‘aha’ moment at a time.
