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.
