Sarah Phillips, Ph.D.
My previous training and work experiences have prepared me to respond to your unique concerns in an ethical, well-informed manner. My work in the mental health field began in 2003 and I have worked with a wide range of diverse clients in many settings and geographical locations. One thing that has remained consistent throughout my experiences is my devotion to helping others in a respectful, genuine and compassionate way.
I obtained my doctorate in Counseling Psychology, with an emphasis in couple and family psychology, in 2011 from the University of North Texas’ APA-accredited Counseling Psychology program. Prior to graduating with my doctorate, I completed an APA-approved pre-doctoral internship with the Dallas Metropolitan Consortium of Psychology (consisting of training at the University of Texas at Dallas Student Counseling Center and Southern Methodist University Counseling and Psychiatric Services) and earned a Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology at East Carolina University. I graduated with a Bachelors of Arts degree in Psychology with Honors from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I have furthered my expertise and refined my interests by working in private practice, community mental health, and college and career counseling centers. I have been a licensed psychologist in Virginia since 2013.
