Hi, I am Sunny Philip. I am fortunate to have nearly three decades of experience working with children, adolescents, adults, seniors, and families struggling with socioeconomic issues, behavioral problems, substance dependence, and mental health problems. I started my career as a community social worker and since then progressively worked and earned a wealth of experience in clinical social work, and psychotherapy techniques. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the State of Florida. I am very excited about helping my clients. My goal is always to help my clients to understand the link between their emotions, thoughts, and behaviors as well as to help them have an insight about the impact of interpersonal relationships in the overall life outcomes, and assist them to work towards making positive changes in their lives, making use of different psychotherapy techniques including motivation interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy, interpersonal psychotherapy, functional family therapy, and others. My effort has always been to utilize the best suitable and appropriate techniques and evidence based approaches to help my clients who are struggling with problems ranging from basic life issues to clinically diagnosed psychiatric disorders. I am always interested in helping my clients to progress steadily towards meeting their life goals and improving the quality of their lives.

Sunny is amazing guy, so patient and kind. Amazing at listening, and always has great words of wisdom that have really helped me over the past few months. Would recommend him to anyone!
Sunny is absolutely wonderful. He combines the science of psychology with the real world issues that I have been dealing with. He helped me understand how I ended up in the dark place I was in and through that create a plan that directly counters those inner negative thoughts. I was feeling hopeless, but now I feel hopeful. I truly felt a difference even after one session. His kind words and compassionate personality helped me open up and be completely honest with him. I have a great plan that he has helped me build and now the world looks brighter because of it. If you are on the border of whether or not to try counseling, take the jump and do it. I wish I had done this a long time ago.
Sunny has helped me tremendously in dealing with and navigating the stressors of my life. I have done everything Sunny has recommended and I can confidently say that as a result I am in a much better place with myself, my spouse and my family.
I have only had two sessions so far with Sunny Philip. Both times I have left the phone calls feeling better. In our second session, which he was gracious enough to allow to extend into next time slot, he seemed to get the point of what I’m grappling with, even though I can’t say I know for sure myself, too many different issues collided for me to know WHAT the main problem is, why can’t I function and thrive? There’s like maybe 3 or 4 major biggies all mixed up. But he gave me an assignment, he seems to have that genuine confidence some few people have, and at least right now I went from so completely hopeless and confused, to feeling like there is hope and I can do this and I can feel positive emotions and feel whole again. It’s not too late. Im not sure if he knows me well enough to be sure of that... :)..hmm... but I feel 100% better about the possibilities of my future and that I might survive this after hanging up today.
This was the first time I signed up for counselling. Initially I did not find a counsellor who would understand my situation. I found Sunny while changing my first counsellor. He is very approachable and friendly, makes you feel at ease from the beginning of the session. I felt that Sunny’s advices were exactly what I needed to heal from my anxieties and difficulties. He listens to the problems very patiently and always gives realistic solutions. I’d highly recommend Sunny’s sessions and would like to have him as my counsellor when I subscribe again.
I got a counselor who listens me very well, understands the problems and gives me good solutions,
Sunny is Awesome. I could write a book, but it’s best you experience it yourself.
I extremely like my counselor he is extremely knowledgeable in the field of expertise.
Sunny has changed my life.
Each week, we’ll focus on a certain area and he’ll assign me homework to do throughout the week to build up my confidence.
I highly recommend Sunny. He was spot on in seeing toxic patterns with the relationship I had with my family, and helped me move forward, along with support of keeping the boundaries I set. Thanks so much.
Sunny is very insightful. He asked the hard questions and give me the Truth
Very patient and takes time to listen so far
I found the live video sessions with Sunny to be very helpful. He has a very calm and positive demeanour. He helped me with my concerns and was very responsive through out the process. Thank you Sunny
I was worried about finding a counselor for my parents but luckily I found Sunny- he is also Indian so he was able to connect with them on their culture and values. He did a great job of pointing out maladaptive thought patterns and explaining how to shift in a more positive direction.
Sunny is my first therapist but better than I had always imagined therapy would be. I only wish I had done this sooner. I came to Sunny in a very vulnerable state. In a mere couple of weeks, he has been able to quickly identify my major concerns and offers practical tools that has had immediate positive effect on my mental well-being.
