I’m Melodye Phillips…. therapist, business owner, mommy, and long-time therapy client. I know firsthand that finding the right therapist can feel like such a huge undertaking. Not all therapists are a good fit for all people. You may want to know if I’m a good fit for you- feel free to reach out, but here’s some info to get you started on that process!
I’m a lover of baseball and University of Michigan football, crocheting, reading, baking, and COLD weather. I was born and raised in Texas but my heart desires to live where there are 4 seasons and snow is a regular thing- not considered a major crisis event that shuts down electricity and water.
I love working with moms to process through pregnancy and postpartum because I get it. I’m a mom in the trenches- the trenches of joy and wonder and overwhelming love- that can also be lonely and scary and just plain hard. Particularly, I love to walk with moms in healing their relationship with food and their pregnant and/or postpartum body. My Enneagram 4 heart loves being present in times of pain and grief through pregnancy loss, complicated pregnancy, and traumatic birth.
Not only have my own life experiences shaped my professional path, but I’m pretty dedicated to being thoroughly trained in the areas that interest me. I’m the only Certified Perinatal Mental Health Provider in East Texas and one of the few Certified Eating Disorder Specialists. I also supervise Licensed Professional Counselor- Associates to support my colleagues in training and ethical practices.
I have a background in child sexual abuse/trauma, adolescent issues, family work, and play therapy. I got my bachelor’s degree from Abilene Christian University and my master’s degree University of Texas at Tyler. I’m also a Certified Spiritual Director through Lipscomb University.
If you’re interested in working together, I’d be happy to set up a time to talk and see if we’d be a good fit. I love all things therapy and I am super passionate about helping you find the right therapist to fit your needs! Call or text me at 903-805-0531 or email me at email@example.com.
