Liz Phillips, LMSW
Not to sound kitschy or cliché but life is full of moments that take our breath away and not always in a good way. It is said we must know pain to know joy but this does not make the pain any less painful. Sometimes joy can seem so foreign we begin to question its existence. I will not guarantee the emergence of joy after working with me but I can offer a break from the solitude of carrying it all alone. There is no easy way to ask for help, to bare ourselves to another person, be vulnerable, and do the work of self-discovery, self-love, and self-awareness but it is almost always worth it. If you’re reading this, stop, and pat yourself on the back, you have gotten this far! I would be honored to walk with you and show up for you in whatever ways you need; which we will uncover together.
A bit about me; I received my undergraduate degree (in Social Work) from U of M and my Master of Social Work (MSW) from Michigan State. I was a non-traditional student aka living some life before deciding to go back to school was something I was interested in. I worked in helping professions while I went back to school to attain the above-mentioned degrees; before that, I was the one needing help. I have been working in the field of individual therapy since graduating in 2014.
I believe in educating and providing skills. I feel if we know what is going on behind the scenes (in our brains, often on a neurobiological level) it becomes a little easier to have compassion for ourselves and make a tangible plan of how to move forward. Within the realm of clinical therapy, there is often a hyper-focus on the mind. To provide the most comprehensive care, I bring attention to the mind-body connection. People are unique and that individuality is important and honored when working with me. I operate always, from evidenced-based practice modalities, with the relationship between myself and you at the center. I can have all the training in the world but if we don’t have relationship and trust the information will not be received. And to steal a line from my dear friend and colleague ‘I will not ask you to do anything I haven’t done.’ I will show up authentically and I ask that you do your best to do the same. Everything else, we can work on. If you are interested in hearing more, maybe doing some work, and trying this relationship on please just reach out; we can build up from there.
