Philip bio

More About Philip – CT

Philip is a counselor trainee working on his Masters of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Ashland Theological Seminary. He developed a passion for counseling while volunteering for the suicide hotline, an experience which encouraged him to go deeper into encountering and working with people on the distress in their lives.

Based on his experience Philip believes people are able to grow when they come to understand the stories that shape their lives. Understanding one’s life story allows people to access new meaning, freedom, and new possibilities when encountering life’s difficulties. Philip is committed to working with each person in an open and non-judgmental environment.

Using clinical skills from narrative and psychodynamic therapy, Philip focuses on issues that range from anxiety, depression, life transition, relationships, trauma, as well as issues pertaining to men. Wherever problems do emerge in life, there exists also an invitation to discover new meanings, deeper understandings of ourselves, and a resilient hope for growth.

While working toward his clinical license Philip works under the supervision of Kevin Heckathorn (LPCC-S).
