About Phillip Guttmann's service

Phillip Guttmann is a seasoned therapist with over ten years of experience in providing supportive counseling, advocacy, and assessment to his clients. He firmly believes that the role of a therapist is not to change his clients but to empower them to create their own meaningful and gradual changes. Phillip takes a compassionate and reflective approach, skillfully holding up a mirror to help clients gain a clearer understanding of their lives and enabling them to act with confidence, clarity, and a fresh perspective. He places great importance on ensuring that his clients always feel safe and in control of the therapeutic process, while also actively partnering with them. Phillip strikes a balance between giving clients room to lead and responding to their needs, meeting them where they are at. Building trust and connection is paramount to the therapeutic process, and Phillip invests time and effort into nurturing these vital elements of the therapeutic relationship. He employs a wide range of treatment modalities tailored to each client’s specific needs and situation, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), aspects of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) such as mindfulness practice and distress tolerance, Solution Focused Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, and Psychodynamic Therapy. As an LGBTQ therapist, Phillip brings a unique lens to clients who identify as LGBTQ,
