Therapist Bio: Phyllis Barboza, MA, LMHC

I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor and hold a Master's degree in Counseling.  Before joining Sheehan Psychotherapy, I worked at the Providence Veteran's Administration Medical Center in the PTSD Clinic.  While working at the VA, I became involved in many PTSD studies and research projects.  Drawing from the education and knowledge I gained at the VA, I later worked in the emergency room and Oncology Unit at Kent County Memorial Hospital.

I use a variety of treatment techniques in my counseling sessions depending on the needs of the individual client.  Among the approaches I employ are: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Person-Centered and Solution-Focused therapies, as well as Existential and Internal Family Systems approaches.  I see adults and older adolescents dealing with issues such as bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety, trauma, and grief.

I view therapy as a collaborative, sharing experience and seek to help my clients feel comfortable, hopeful, and truly understood.  I woul
d be happy to talk with you about how I might be of help.
