Welcome to the professional website of Paula Lupinetti-Chadwick LCSW

This page was created to bring you information, insights, and resources on your journey to healing. It is also here to share with you a little bit about myself and my practice.

Take a look around and please feel free to reach out in the contact box below. Thanks for visiting!


I will be on vacation from Friday, August 30th though Sunday, September 8th. I will return any messages when I’m back! Happy end of summer!

Potential Clients – as of August 2019, I currently do not have any availability to start working with new clients. If you are an adult looking for individual therapy, and would like to inquire about my waiting list, please reach out via email – paula@joyfulbeginningscounseling.com

Let me tell you a little bit about what I look for in a client: someone who is ready to make their health & wellness a priority, who understands that therapy is a commitment (usually starting off weekly), who is open-minded, and who is willing to put time and energy into themselves outside of the therapy session as well as in it.

Please see my “about” page to see what I specialize in. Please also see my “fees” page to check to see if I take your insurance. (As insurance can be quite confusing to navigate, feel free to ask if you are unsure.) If you’re wondering whether we might be a good fit, feel free to reach out to ask more questions. If you would like to reach out to talk about scheduling, please email me at paula@joyfulbeginningscounseling.com or text at 609-346-5953 to set up a time to talk.

If you need assistance finding another therapist, I would recommend looking at Psychology Today’s website, where you can search for therapists by qualifiers such as zip code, insurance accepted, and types of therapy offered. If you are looking for someone local to Collingswood, I would personally recommend: V. Margaret Newman Therapeutic Services in Westmont, Annie Fisher in Merchantville, Core Counseling in Voorhees, The Starting Point in Westmont, Vince Austin-Cole in Westmont, or MaryAnne Giello (215-219-5549) in Collingswood.



This website is not an alternative to individual, family, couple, or group psychotherapy. It’s intention is to provide additional resources for those currently in treatment with a licensed professional. If you are in treatment, and find any of this information to be useful, please share with your practitioner/clinician for continuity of care.

Also, please note that there will be a ton of information here that is linked from other sources. I will try my best to rely on credible sources. Please feel free to contact me with any incorrect information that I can remove or un-link. The beliefs, view, and perspectives of the website moderators, bloggers, and fields of study do not necessarily reflect the beliefs, view, and perspectives that I hold personally or professionally. Please filter through what is relevant to you and don’t be afraid to search for more information on your own.
