Phyllis’ integrative approach to counseling and coaching has been shaped by an extraordinary 30-year career in the fields of education, business, and human development, but more importantly, by the teachers, coaches and therapists who helped her overcome life’s difficulties and find the truth within herself.
A life-long learner, Phyllis earned her B.S. in Education in 1978, achieved the designation of Professional Certified Coach in 2000 and Master Certified Coach in 2006, and received her graduate degree in Professional Counseling from Georgia State University in 2010. She became a Voice Dialogue facilitator in 2001, and achieved the certification of Psychodrama facilitator in 2012. She is a skillful facilitator of mindfulness-based therapies and experiential methods, and collaborates with other practitioners to create a holistic healing process for her clients.
Personally, Phyllis enjoys photography, spending time in nature, cooking for friends, and traveling for fun to places near and far. The most significant “journey” of her life was in 1998 when she left Corporate America and traveled solo around the world. Upon her return, she realized her true purpose in life–to help others overcome life’s difficulties and find their way into a happier, healthier future.
