A native Tennessean, Phillip received his Bachelor's degree from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, his Master's in Counseling from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville, and finally his doctorate in Counseling and Personnel Services from the University of Louisville. Phillip has practiced in a variety of clinical settings, working with folks experiencing life stressors, depression, anxiety, and mood disorders. In fact, while working in a prison, he pioneered the “walk-n-talk” therapeutic technique, where he invited the inmates to walk with him in the common areas daily. Phillip sought ways to help the inmates regain hope and find strength individually and as a group, and they began to learn to cope with their struggles and the tragedies of life.

Phillip enjoys the outdoors, hiking, crafting, and volunteering. Phillip believes every person is specially gifted, and when these gifts are encouraged and cultivated, a person finds inner peace. Phillip also believes people’s feelings and behaviors are influenced by their interactions with others and their environment.

His faith as a Christian energizes his work, and he has tremendous respect for clients’ spiritual stories, honoring their choice whether to incorporate spirituality or faith into the therapeutic relationship. Phillip will help you increase your own understanding of your personal gifts causing you to make better choices when dealing with life’s challenges. Phillip encourages you to “walk-n-talk” with him.
