Anthony Phillips

Vetted by the Safe Haven Team

Black men competent: 3+ years

Associate Marriage Family Therapist

Located in Gardena, CA 90247

About Me

Upon starting a new therapeutic journey, I always share that through this process, we will change the idea of “why is this happening to me” to “everything is going according to plan.” As we get started, the first order of business is to construct an environment where you can feel seen, heard, and safe throughout this journey of self-discovery. The goal is to meet you where you are, so we can get you where you want to be. We will accomplish this by taking an integrative approach to facilitate personal growth and healing by identifying themes, unresolved conflicts, and behavioral patterns. As a culturally competent Therapist, I focus on being an agent of change that supports women, men, and couples. I incorporate an eclectic approach of Liberation Psychology, Psychodynamic Therapy, and spiritual modalities that utilize astrology and numerology. With that, we can tailor a treatment plan that is uniquely tuned for you. Ultimately, the question comes down to how motivated and committed you are to be the change you want to see. As much as therapy can be a positive instrument, it does not keep you from experiencing the hardships of life, but it does make sure that you will be supported with navigating and growing from those experiences.

Mack Kyles

Vetted by the Safe Haven Team

Black men competent: 13+ years

Mental Health Counselor

Located in Killeen, TX 76542

About Me

BOTTOM LINE UPFRONT…I have all the degrees, certifications, licenses that everyone has and probably more. What really matters is my journey and my ability to help you with yours. I have struggled with depression, anxiety and unresolved trauma. I had moments I didn’t recognize myself. I felt lost and alone. After several years of being in this place, I realized I was doing a poor job of hiding my emotions, life and circumstances from my children. I was teaching them how to be depressed and how not to engage with life. I did not want this version of me to be my legacy. So I sought help. I took action and did the work. Along the way, I finally acknowledged the source of my pain wasn’t only PTSD. It was low self-esteem, unhealthy beliefs and the stories I told myself as a kid. It was the traumas I witnessed and experienced. It was the unfair expectations of masculinity. And the everyday stress of being a melanated man in America. Everything I experienced, the negative thinking, self-destructive behaviors, sexual abuse, unhealthy self-esteem, lack of clarity, being afraid and being paralyzed, all prepared me for purpose and led me to my passion for helping others stop the emotional pain and dysfunctional behaviors created from unresolved issues. My life is an example of how it's possible to overcome the obstacles and barriers that have kept so many bound and imprisoned. I operate from vulnerability and authenticity. I deal with the hard stuff: depression, trauma, suicide, addiction, being stuck and without direction. My superpower is I’m not afraid to walk you through the shadows and the valleys. In fact, I encourage it because it’s necessary to get to the better side. But only with someone experienced like me. How much better would life feel if you had more money, real-solid relationships, you stopped self-sabotaging, you actually showed up & gave the haters a bigger purpose? And how amazing would it be if you were able to have clarity, purpose, and peace? It’s possible. I have witnessed the transformation of hundreds of people. I know it’s possible for you too! For over a decade, I have helped people overcome unresolved issues, create boundaries and have a mindset reset so they can achieve the best possible today. Families and relationships have been restored, addictions and strongholds have been broken. My clients have stopped the cycles of depression, anxiety, self-sabotaging behaviors, and generational curses have been broken. As a result of my clients efforts, they have stopped limiting beliefs and negative thinking. They were able to build confidence, clarity and self-esteem to go after and achive their dreams, have meaningful and fruitful relationships, to have peace and make a lot more money. I offer my optimism about your future and my ability to help you achieve your goals. My approach to helping is direct and goal oriented. We are going to meet, address the issues and implement skills so you can begin mastering the art of living. Keywords: single, stuck, lost, depression, divorce, drinking, self development, self improvement, growth, mindset
