Wally Phillips, MA, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in San Rafael
I have a warm, collaborative, relational and empowering style. At times we look at what holds you back, and at times we look at the evolving being that is struggling to emerge. Both polarities have something to offer when properly accessed and integrated. Since wounding frequently happens in relationship, healing may best be facilitated in relationship with someone that is accepting all of who you are. Trauma requires a safe and inviting space to move into, and needs delicate handling. I help couples find a way to communicate that makes it safer for both to come forward vulnerably.
I tend to use the body as a deep teacher - it doesn't lie nor deny. It is a fantastic barometer for hidden (or obvious) emotional content. The body has a language of its own - it's your dashboard. I have an extensive background in Hakomi. I use EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy) in couples work.
Humor is way to connect with each other which can be healing in and of itself. Therapy doesn't have to be so serious all the time! A gentle allowance of all parts of you are welcomed. Healing is more about the relationship than the technique or modality.
