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. I want to be a part of that change.

It’s only been a couple times but I highly recommend. She listens and offers un opinionated advice and really cares.
I’ve really learned from my sessions with Phyllis. I have noticed a change in my outlook and have learned how to better manage my stress and anxiety, which we established as goals together during my first session.
Phyllis has really helped me reframe my thoughts and been a listening ear from my petty stuff to my big stuff
So far I’ve had two sessions with Phyllis and she has been great! She’s helped me so much already and I’m looking forward to continuing therapy with her
Phyllis is a kind person, and a good listener. I never felt judge, but always felt supported.
She’s absolutely amazing.
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.
