My therapeutic approach is wellness-based care and a combination of Psychodynamic, CBT, and Client-Centered Therapy.

I work with my clients to create an open, safe and therapeutic environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment.

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Emelda Phillip. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Dr Phillip pays attention to what you are saying and reads between the lines. What was a strongpoint for me was that she wasn’t afraid to pin point an issue or address something I was clearly overlooking. I would recommend Dr. Phillip!

Dr Phillip is a patient and understanding person, she allows you to be you and not sugar coat how you express your feelings. I feel as if I’m talking to one of my close friends and or family
