Philip Mendola is a Licensed Professional Counselor with a 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.
Drawing on clinical skills from psychodynamic therapy, Philip treats issues of depression, anxiety, sexual issues, anger problems, relationship issues, grief, and trauma. To treat these issues means looking at the specific way they have intersected with an individual’s unique life. Counseling opens the possibility to explore these issues fully in a nonjudgmental environment. Counselors often say: “What was hurt in relationship can only be healed in relationship.”
The problems of life also appear in our closest relationships, and drawing from Emotion Focused Therapy, Philip works with couples who want to understand and grow from their distress. This process often includes meeting with each partner individually in order to fully understand how the relationship is shaped for each person. Within an environment of safety and understanding, couples can learn new ways to see and move through the places where the relationship feels stuck.
While working toward his independent clinical license Philip works under the supervision of Kevin Heckathorn (LPCC-S).
