Dr. Phillips is a licensed clinical psychologist in the state of Illinois and a pastoral counselor who has been practicing psychotherapy for forty two years. Additionally, Dr. Phillips has been an ordained United Methodist minister for the last forty years.   A primary focus of his treatment has been services to children, adolescents and their families.  His treatment has occurred in both inpatient and outpatient settings and he has worked extensively in both the public and private sector.  Dr. Phillips has been involved in direct delivery and management of clinical services to children and families and has consulted to churches and child welfare delivery systems. In doing so, he has had the opportunity to work with a wide variety of problems children experience, including depression, anger/impulse control issues, parent-child conflicts, anti-social behaviors, severe psychological disorders, and educational dysfunction. Often clients will come to therapy with problems, e.g., depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, that are interwoven with religious and/or spiritual issues.  Dr. Phillips works with this interweaving in such a manner as to help the client not only with his/her problems but also work with the religious/spiritual issues and concerns tied to the problems.  Dr. Phillips is able to do this work in an effective fashion due to the training and experience he has had in working therapeutically in these areas of problems in living and a person's religious and/or spiritual understanding.  In addition to maintaining a private practice, Dr. Phillips has been a lecturer in Psychology at Northwestern University for 31 years and Associate Core Faculty as well as Coordinator of the Psychology and Spirituality Minor at  the Illinois School of Professional Psychology,  a division of Argosy University, Chicago, for the past 14 years.  He has presented at numerous professional conferences and workshops over the last thirty-seven years.
