My name is Philip Clary, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Georgia. I have over 8 years of counseling experience working with individuals, couples, and families in inpatient and outpatient settings.
I earned a bachelor’s degree from Mercer University with majors in philosophy and German. I studied for 1 year at Phillips Universität in Marburg, Germany and received a Master of Science degree in Mental Health Counseling from Fort Valley State University. My ongoing studies in and love of philosophy inform my approach to helping others examine their lives as they seek meaning, direction, and purpose.
I am interested in helping you understand, cope with, manage, and reduce the symptoms of depression and anxiety. I also enjoy working in the area of career exploration and career changes by examining natural interests, aptitudes, and values and considering possible career choices that incorporate all three areas.
Exploring the writings of many great philosophers and my own half-century journey on this earth have helped me understand that life presents us with many inevitable, unavoidable challenges common to us all. I work patiently and compassionately with those seeking to understand and come to terms with feelings of shame, loss and grief, meaninglessness, isolation, and ultimately our limited lifespan. I hope to help others, young and old, discover or create their own meaning and purpose in life. I want to help people answer for themselves, “How do I want to live the rest of my life?” and to develop ways to meaningfully connect with others.
I look forward to working with you to set and meet your goals for your best life.

Philip has been so helpful for me. He responds in a very timely manner and checks in when he hasn't heard from me in a while. His counseling helped me through a very difficult time with my daughter.
Phililp is very insightful and very quickly helped me take a deeper look at my life and how I wanted to live moving forward. Highly recommend.
Philip has assisted me in looking at and processing some issues in key areas of my life. This has resulted in greater clarity, understanding, and healing for me. His friendly, reflective, and balanced way of being makes it easy for me to share my innermost thoughts and feelings. Philip has a great ability to listen and reflect back what I'm saying without judgement, yet with very helpful insights. He's very supportive, and has helped me become more aware of my strengths. Counseling with Philip is very beneficial. I look forward to my sessions, knowing they will be truly helpful.
Philip is an understanding person. He replies to my concerns quickly and offers coping skills.
Philip responds quickly and is always very professional. He has a real talent for finding the good in every situation and is always very nice. I even missed a few days recently and he continued to check-up on me to make sure I was alright. 10/10!
