About me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor- Supervisor with a national board certification in counseling and a Specialist Degree in counseling and psychology. I have over 20 years experience in counseling with diverse populations from many different backgrounds. I specialize in treating anxiety, depression, women's issues, relationship issues, and career concerns. I have been successful in helping clients become emotionally healthier and make better decisions.

My counseling style is eclectic and insight oriented. I combine rational-emotive, psychodynamic, and cognitive-behavioral therapy. I also use reality therapy techniques to assist clients in evaluating their present situation and setting goals for the future.

If you are struggling with depression, feeling discouraged, isolated or anxious and fearful, I understand and I can help. I have the credentials necessary to bring hope and change to brighten your tomorrows. I enter the process with you and will assist you in reaching your goals for treatment. You no longer have to struggle alone but have someone ready to help meet your needs.

Written on Apr 11, 2024 after therapy with Phyllis for 5 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, anger management, and coping with life changes

I love how Mrs. Phyllis is able to take what I say and gives me an objective solution. It's not even in a judgmental way. I love the way she is objective and helps me to see things in a different light. I also love how her examples help to make many Biblical concepts make much more sense, since I am one who loves to learn to apply Biblical truth to my personal life. She also gives encouragement and hope. I would definitely recommend her for anyone.
