Kariah Phillips, LICSW

I’m Karime (1 of 1)ah Phillips and I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker.  I received my Masters Degree from Columbia University in the City of New York in 2007.  I have worked as a masters-level therapist for over 10 years, and have been working in the helping profession since 2001.  I love what I do!   When working with my clients, I really focus on developing an atmosphere where you feel right at home and my goals is that you always leave your sessions feeling hopeful and that there is something to work on.

I am foundationally trained in DBT and have training in CBT, mindfulness, exposure, ACT, and have pursued much training in working with couples and relationship challenges.  When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband and three little girls.  I enjoy chocolate, photography, travel, music and being with good people.

  • Marriage, Couples, and Navigating Relationship Challenges
  • Anxiety Management
  • Management of Depression and other mood disorders
  • Perinatal Mood Disorders (Postpartum Depression and Anxiety) and support of families thru birth transitions
  • Young Adult Transitions (Managing transitions into college, relationships, entering the workforce, etc)
  • Grief and Loss
  • Trauma
  • Parenting Challenges
