About Me

Feeling disconnected from or wounded by your partner is painful. Fighting and not communicating can feel hopeless about your relationship and that things will never change. Having a partner that cheated on you or is struggling with a porn addiction is painful and can break trust making you feel like you’re not enough. Being the one with an addiction is weighted with shame and criticism, along with guilt for hurting the one you love. Negative criticism and tearing yourself down leads to depression and feelings of worthlessness.
I have empathy and compassion for couples that feel disconnected or are struggling. I help couples restore connection and communication. I teach you how to overcome your addiction and erase the shame. I can help you to achieve self-worth with self-compassion and how to recover from trauma and abuse. I do this by listening with empathy, compassion, and love.
It is important to feel comfortable and safe in counseling. I offer a free 15 minute phone consultation to talk about your struggles, what to expect from counseling, answer any questions you might have and to make sure you feel we’re a good fit. Call me today and let’s get started.

Phillip has helped me see patterns in myself that I didn’t see before. I didn’t realize that I struggled with the fear of trust and emotional abandonment and he not only listened to and helped me come to that realization but has also given me tools to overcome that. He does a good balance of listening and providing help for me and my husband to the point where our arguments have almost stopped altogether and have turned into healthy discussions. He is also real to talk to and makes opening up easy.
