Our thoughts and behaviors are dynamically influential of one another. As inherently good beings, changing the way we think and/or behave will ultimately change how we perceive and experience our worlds.
Our lives are a collection of individual experiences that shape how we learn to respond to our environments. Each of us comes equipped with many gifts that make life wonderful as well as many challenges that often hinder our ability to live fully enriched lives.
My life’s work has been geared towards addressing the truly challenging psychological phenomena that often times disrupt our minds, bodies, and spirits, leaving us unsure of how to change. I have served in a number of professional capacities as a neuroscience researcher, addiction & family therapist, administrator, grant writer, program manager, and professor of both undergraduate and graduate studies. My theoretical approach is founded in a convergence of Cognitive-Behavioral Theory, Humanistic Theory, and Pyschodynamic Theory.
With specializations in addiction, grief, and trauma, and a background in neuroscience, I can help guide you and your family on your journey(s) to health, healing, and growth, if only you will accept the challenge to do the work necessary.
Additional areas of focus: Trauma and abuse, Grief, Self esteem, Coping with life changes, Family Problems, Guilt and Shame, Life Purpose, Self-Love, Women's Issues
Clinical approaches: Client-Centered Therapy, Existential Therapy

Dr. Phillips is a welcoming person who takes the time to get you on an individual level. She understands that each person is unique and I truly believe she is helping me become the best version of myself. Her whole person, spiritual, approach is perfect for anyone who has lost a little bit of their soul and wants to get back on the right track.
