Welcome and Hello, I am Dr. Phyl (Phyllis Watson, MS, PsyD). I am a psychotherapist, Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and a Certified Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse Counselor in Illinois and a Licensed Professional Counselor in Colorado, Arizona, and Ohio. I am a Nationally Certified Counselor with over 25 years of experience working with teens, adults, and seniors. I have been a subject matter expert featured on National Public Radio (NPR) and local cable news. I offer psychotherapy and professional supervision services.
Working with diverse populations, my areas of research and clinical specialties are in health, wellness, and medical concerns. I also help guide and support people through life stressors and transitions. I help clients with post-partum depression, grief and loss, women’s issues, multiethnic identity development, and generalized life challenges. I work with persons in recovery from Addictions and Substance Use Disorders. Other areas of interest are in working with student-athlete adjustment, life in balance, and mid-life challenges.
From a strength based approach, my clinical work has allowed me to serve clients in a variety of settings where I embrace solution focused interventions with a humanistic and narrative approach to helping clients learn new skills and coping strategies. Informing my therapeutic approach, I allow clients to tell their story from their lived experience while creating action plans and goals for successfully moving forward. The therapeutic focus is on utilizing personal strengths, understanding perceptions, addressing obstacles, and setting goals for improving life experiences.
My goal is to help clients find their purpose and live with meaning. My clinical practice motto is Love YOUR Journey ~ Live YOUR Life.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Phyllis Mogielski-Watson. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
An amazing person with an abundance of knowledge and support, and an amazing reader who provides guidance and support through different methodologies that suits the person.
She’s polite, calm, listens and makes me feel valued. It’s hard to share feelings and things some might not share with family or friends, and here those concerns and needs are handled with care.
Dr. Mogielsi- Watson has been very constructive with her feedback and shared insights that has helped continue to make progress. She is an invaluable resource.
We’ve only just begun this journey, but I am already feeling much more confident in my choices and new boundaries. Thank you Dr. Phyl. You’re awesome.!
