Dr. Andrew Philip

Psychologist

About me

I am a licensed clinical psychologist and a clinical health psychologist by training. I am a little different from traditional psychologists or counselors in that my background is in primary care, and in that sense visits with me are therapeutic, but kind of like meeting with a primary care doctor you feel comfortable with in that they are straight forward and not too "fluffy." People I work with often find this refreshing, especially if they aren't comfortable with a more stereotypical style of traditional mental health counseling.

I help people learn to cope and thrive in the presence of experiences like stress, chronic medical conditions like pain and insomnia, sadness, and feelings of hopelessness. I have worked with people from just about every walk of life- women, men, trans and non-binary folx, children, grandparents, doctors, students, people who are homeless, members of the military, executives, and people who just generally consider themselves 'wanderers'. I also help people going through understandably difficult experiences: life transitions (starting college, a new job, or a new situation), grief and loss of loved ones, and some of the more philosophical parts of life like finding meaning and value in existence or things that seem like they should feel 'good', but just don't.

I am a good fit if you are looking for an easy conversation style free of judgement, that is change-oriented, meaningful and clear. I am probably NOT a great fit if you are struggling with severe mental illnesses like bipolar disorder or schizophrenia, psychiatric hospitalization, severe substance use disorders, anticipate needing legal references or documentation, or if you feel you may need very frequent, intensive visits.

Most importantly, I go into our work together as a partner and a facilitator, and I already know you are fundamentally good. Both of our jobs will be to align this internal value and worth with the rest of your life and environment.

Written on Jun 23, 2021 after therapy with Andrew for 4 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, self esteem, anger management, and coping with life changes

Dr. Philip has helped me come such a long way in a short amount of time. I am so happy I got matched with him as my counselor. I am thankful for all he has done and is doing to help my mental health.
