Disciplines of Expertise:
Phyllis is a licensed counselor working in both the school and private practice settings. Because of this, she holds a unique insight to the continuum of trauma informed care. Her focus is to help build resiliency and coping skills in young persons and to uncover and treat the effects of developmental trauma in adults. Personal and professional experience has taught her that healing past wounds is relational, strengths-based and centered in trauma informed modalities. She is a certified Trauma-Informed Care Practitioner and holds trainings in Psychological First Aid, EMDR, EFT, and other related therapies.
Because of her religious background, Phyllis has a unique counseling perspective for faith-based clients. She holds an understanding of how religious culture is deeply involved in everyday life and has served in many volunteer capacities within her own denomination. As a person of faith, she identifies that what is oftentimes labeled as sin or lack of resolve is actually a trauma response from past, unhealed wounds. Healing the past can help clients move through stages of grief and shame to find their connection to self and Deity.
Phyllis completed her undergraduate degree in Human Development and Family Studies and holds a masters degree in Counseling and Human Services. Currently, she is pursuing a doctoral degree in Psychology.
