The decision to seek out consultation services is a serious one. Only the right professional, with mental health counseling experience and appropriate ethical judgment that YOU value will do. Sometimes, the mere idea of looking for such a person is daunting. Therefore, if you are just "meeting" me, please let me introduce myself and thank you for considering me to possibly be your professional.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) by the State of Alabama, license #2610 and a Licensed Professional Supervising Counselor (SC) by the State of Alabama, license 0622, as well as a Nationally Certified Counselor, (NCC), license #242703. I own a private practice, "Dare to Dream" to help those who "Dare to Dream" to reach their goals. I've been in the field of mental health since 1997, and have over 22 years of Clinical Experience, providing services in the Madison, Marshall, Dekalb, Morgan, Lawrence, Limestone, and Jackson Counties. I have a Master's Degree in Counseling and Psychology from the University of West Alabama and my experience includes counseling in a variety of settings, ranging from private practice to professional organizations, as well as mental health centers with populations ranging from children to geriatrics on a large variety of mental health issues, ranging from depression, anxiety,, adjustment issues, to Schizophrenia and Bi-Polar Disorders. As a program director, I supervised 14 staff members and managed a million dollar mental health program, while also ensuring training, quality assurance and performance improvement of approximately 200 employees. I also continue to provide training to mental health professionals throughout the state by overseeing the program "Leslie Phillips Seminars®" which hosts continuing education seminars for mental health professionals, as I am a NBCC approved continuing education provider, and an Alabama Board of Examiners in Social Work approved continuing education provider as well. I also provide supervision for those seeking state of Alabama LPC licensure and approved by the Alabama Board of Examiners in Counseling to provide the LPC Supervision Training Series. Lastly, I also teach Undergraduate Psychology courses with Columbia College. I maintain a small, part time private practice as well. I have a passion and experience to work with those that have adjustment issues (such as depression, anxiety, divorce, death, empty nesters, and those with food and weight loss issues), but work with many other mental health issues as well.
