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.

Love Phyllis- I missed her and really needed her back
Phyllis has been an amazing support system through the ups and downs in my life over the last year and a half. She checks in on me regularly if I don’t have scheduled appointments and it’s very responsive to any messages that I send. She has been a lifeline for me and a time that I needed it and a peace in my life.
Phyllis is very thought provoking. So easy to talk to. Had no hesitation just opening up to her. Her calm demeanor with simple accurate advice is very easy to listen to. Helps guide you to the answers you may already know within yourself.

She is great at listening and understanding my situation and problems. Phyllis provides great insight and ways to better myself and deal/manage my issues.
Excellent and caring therapist
This has been my first time doing therapy, but I have wanted to for a long time. I’m glad I started this and I’m glad it was with Phyllis. She is a great listener, very empathetic, and has the necessary skills to help me learn how to recognize and deal with things. I feel comfortable around her and she keeps up with and cares about the things that matter to me. She also knows the exact extent of her limitations and has been very supportive in guiding me to find resources for some specific/niche dynamics.
Overall, I highly recommend her as a therapist, whether you’ve done therapy before or otherwise. She is professional and caring, and is definitely worth it.
Phyllis is so kind but very honest and helpful. I look forward to future sessions with her!
Attentive, provide guidance and resources.
Phyllis has given me the kind of personalized support I need, it does not feel like a waste of my time, which tends to be my experience with therapy. I love the way she takes the time to get to know me and my past before tackling current issues!

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.
