My Approach to Helping

**Phillip Evans, MS, MFT, BC-TMH is not currently accepting new clients.**

My experience working with people to realize their therapeutic goals suggests that change happens regularly and it can happen sooner than we may anticipate. The duration of the work is not directly proportional to the development of the concern that prompted a person or persons, or family to seek professional attention.

A family once told me that a previous mental health provider told that if they wanted to be in healthy relationships, they would need to participate in therapy on an ongoing basis. I truly hope that was not what a mental health provider said. I am saddened that that was the "take away" message from a therapeutic encounter. Therapy and counseling should foster health, independence, and the development of skills to continue to have ever improving relationships with those in our lives. I work very hard to assist people I work with to achieve their goals and therapy is not unending and ongoing. At the same time, I am aware that we all need to complete work in our own time, so there is no need to rush.

More Info About My Practice

I understand that the "fit" between therapist and client is paramount. To that end, I offer a no-charge, initial 30 minute consultation. I find this to be a good opportunity for a prospective clientclients to decide if I am someone they would like to work with and I can assess if I offer what they seek in therapy.

Call me or email me to arrange an initial consultation. Do let me know how best to respond to your inquiry (by phone or email). While I utilize a secure, encrypted email service that will prompt you to create your own password so that you can read my reply, I will keep such communications brief and focused on scheduling as email is not an ideal way to communicate complex or sensitive information.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
