Hello there. My name is Leslie Phillips. I am happy to tell you about me. I am certified as both a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) and Licensed Practitioner of the Healing Arts (LPHA) in the State of Illinois. I graduated from Chicago State University in 2012 with my Master of Arts (M.A.) Degree, Magna Cum Laude in Counseling Psychology.
I have extensive experience providing expert counseling services to children, adolescents, adults and seniors. I have worked in the home healthcare industry, in child welfare, in the not-for-profit sector, in community mental health, and most recently in private practice. I specialize in treating depression, anxiety, and trauma primarily through the use of cognitive-behavioral therapy, sensorimotor psychotherapy, and mindfulness practices. I have advanced training Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Trauma and Telehealth Services. I provide teletherapy services for Generations and Home Psych Services using secure video teleconferencing technology for the comfort, convenience, added privacy and safety of my clients.
I believe that everyone has the inherent ability to heal themselves and support my clients in harnessing that innate healing ability and developing practical skills to cope with life stressors to achieve an optimal level of functioning.
In my spare time, I enjoy crafting and spending quality time with my family and my Cockapoo, Hunter.
