Alisha Phillips

Licensed Professional Counselor

I believe that every person has the potential for healing and optimal wellness, and working with a counselor can greatly help this natural process. Being heard and understood by another person is deeply healing, and the therapeutic relationship provides the safe foundation for personal growth.

My Approach

I will spend time getting to know you- your concerns, your strengths, your values, and your hopes for the future. Together we will work toward understanding your story and practice building on your strengths, identifying resources, and learning new skills. I work with each client in a unique and different way, which may include Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and mindfulness and relaxation techniques.

My Background

I enjoy working with clients from many different backgrounds though many of my current clients are young professionals. I have worked with individuals, couples, and families around issues of child abuse and childhood trauma, parenting, significant life changes, divorce, grief and loss, anxiety, depression, perinatal mental health, and chronic disease management. I especially enjoy helping individuals and couples learn principles of healthy relationships and communication. I have a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Bushnell University, and a Bachelor’s degree in Family and Human Services from University of Oregon. I have been using telehealth when indicated since 2015, and continue to offer telehealth sessions whenever preferred. I am also seeing clients in person under certain circumstances.
