Edd Conboy

Edd Conboy is Director of Social Services and the Counseling Center at Broad Street Ministry and Senior Staff Therapist at the Council for Relationships in Philadelphia.

Edd is not your typical therapist. He combines the skills, knowledge and expertise of the psychotherapeutic community with his real-world business experience to help clients get unstuck and to support them as they move into effective action.

In his private practice Edd works with people from all walks of life — from business, community and non-profit leaders to inner-city youth — and is particularly effective working with people facing unique stresses like those of world-class professional and amateur athletes, survivors of trauma and couples with chronically ill children. Edd is also a talented photographer whose work was recently featured in Faith on the Avenue: Religion on a City Street by Katie Day (New York: Oxford University Press, 2014).
