What Clients Can Expect: Phylicia works through the idea that thought patterns contribute to the way we view the world and ourselves. Phylicia believes that often times we learn unhealthy and unproductive ways of thinking that can lead to feelings and behaviors that are detrimental to the fullness of our lives. However, just as we learned to live this way, we can also teach ourselves to live healthy and more fulfilling lives. Through a mix of Psychodynamic exploration of patterns and a Cognitive Behavioral approach toward change, Phylicia moves with clients towards a deeper understanding of current challenges in order to affect change in their lives. Phylicia provides an open and non-judgmental space for in-depth discussion of needs and special exploration of strengths and hopes to move towards a healthy and productive future.
About: Phylicia obtained a BA in Psychology from the University of Dayton in Ohio and a MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Trinity Washington University in DC. Phylicia has worked in the mental health field since 2008 and is a seasoned clinician who has worked with many populations. She enjoys seeing the progress and work people put in in therapy to make positive changes in their lives. Phylicia sees people as an invaluable resource and any attempt to live a healthier and happier life is to be commended and appreciated. She also enjoys working with populations who have a difficult time expressing themselves and often employs the use of popular culture (books, music, television, etc.) to relate common issues to everyday experiences with clients and provide a therapeutic understanding and conceptualization of their challenges.
