Phil Howe | Therapist | Beaches Therapy Group

Phillip Howe, MSW RSW

The decision to begin counselling is often the first step towards improved relationships and feeling better. I have faith in people and am strength-based and patient. My approach is to begin by exploring the client’s own view of their issues, their best hopes for a resolution, and their expectations of counselling.

I am a registered social worker and have a Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Toronto.   My training includes emotion-focused therapy, couple therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, parent-adolescent conflict, and trauma.

I work with many first responders dealing with recent or past traumatic experiences in their work.  I am comfortable working with clients with a wide range of challenges, including anxiety, depression, couple conflict, grief, or facing difficult life decisions or events.

We will work together on your goals. I am committed to staying current with the best therapeutic practices and research. In our first few sessions, I will learn about your challenges, strengths, and family background and administer inventories to give a clinical measurement of depression and anxiety.

In addition to my clinical practice at Beaches Therapy Group, I work as a management consultant focusing on staff retention, clinical supervision, and creating productive and healthy work environments. I have more than 30 years of experience working with adults and adolescents and have authored or co-authored more than a dozen publications, dealing mainly with workplace stress, trauma, and resilience factors.

I am happy to offer a free telephone consultation to answer any questions you might have about my approach and background.
