I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Florida. I attended school later in life and I have worked in different areas of social work. The areas include working with children and families that are involved in abuse situations; crisis counseling; working with adolescents in a diversion program; family counseling; and as a school social worker. I helped students achieve academic success so that they were able to set goals for their future. I also worked with children who had emotional and behavioral problems, and substance abuse issues. I co-facilitated parenting groups that taught parents how to communicate with their adolescent children.
I am compassionate, empathetic, and I care deeply about people being happy. I am easy to talk to and nonjudgmental. My goal as a therapist is for people to reach their full potential and be satisfied with where they are in life. My approaches are Solution Focused Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, but I incorporate other approaches as necessary.
Entering into therapy is the first step towards making a positive change and I want to be a part of that change.

Phyllis has been instrumental in my growth over the last year both personally and professionally. She has shown me how to accept the things I can't control and how to cope and find positivity in everyday life. I feel happier in this present moment due to her support and guidance.
I met Dr.Phyllis Babrove last year and she really help me discovered on what it means to have emotions, how to hold myself accountable, set up boundaries, and a lot about what self care means. I had to leave therapy due to some financial problems but I recall how she was so kind and understanding and even said I can ask for her again. Glad I am back and able to get in sometime with her once more. It has been helpful just getting professional help and she is the person who I highly recommend due to her patience, understanding, and listening skills.

All though Phyllis and I are just starting I am 100% confident in her and look forward to continuing my journey.
Phyllis has been instrumental in helping me see past my barriers and perceived shortfalls. She always takes time to listen and analyze what I am saying before offering advice, which is normally just what I needed to hear in that moment. She has taken the steps to understand my problems and offer steps to help me work through the issue. I have recommended Phyllis to multiple friends and believe if there were more people seeing counselors like her we would all lead more mentally healthy lives. I am thankful for find her and even more thankful for her advice.
I’ve only had Phyllis for a short time but I really like her and trust her to have my best interest at heart. She gave me a few tips that are already working well. I really like this platform as well and have told a few people about it.
Phyllis is very patient and understanding. She is always respectful of my thoughts and emotions and responds in a very compassionate manner.

Phyllis Babrove has been truly great! From our first session, she made me feel very comfortable and I was able to freely open up to her. The advice she gave me in our first session has helped me let go of a huge burden I hadn’t fully let go of yet. I am definitely going to continue booking sessions with Phyllis. I actually just booked my 3rd session with her recently. Definitely recommend.
I really couldn’t have a better therapist. She makes BetterHelp that much better.

She listens and points me in the direction to go or a direction to try. I appreciate that she reads my journal entries and responds to some of them. A tough time in my life is more of a speed bump than a ditch because of her good counsel.
She understands and she is kind.
Great listener, non judgmental.
