Helping adults recover from a variety of mental health conditions
I am Dr. Taylor Phillips, Psy.D., a licensed clinical psychologist who is the Founder of Vitamin P Therapy, an independent entity within Bayview Therapy serving the amazing South Florida community. I work to help adults recover from a variety of mental health conditions and stressors in order to pursue a sense of purpose and meaningful relationships, as well as interests through talk therapy and evidence-based treatments.
According to the National Institute of Mental Health, 1 in 5 adults experience a mental illness, which is defined as a mental, behavioral, or emotional disorder that can cause a range of impairment in your daily life, from mild to severe. Maybe you’ve received treatment before and been provided a diagnosis, such as Major Depression or Generalized Anxiety Disorder but I bet there are many of you reading this who are uncertain as to whether you meet criteria for a diagnosable mental health condition given estimates that up to half of such individuals do not seek treatment. This may be because of the continued stigma surrounding mental health treatment or because you’ve always thought the difficulties you’ve been experiencing aren’t that serious and you can handle them on your own. Perhaps you are now in a place where you are wondering whether the anxiety you casually refer to is more than just nerves. Whether you are looking for a safe space to understand your situation better, seeking help to better manage your symptoms, or in need of support in recognizing the quality person you continue to be despite how you may be made to feel since being diagnosed, therapy is able to help with any and all of the aforementioned areas (and more). The therapeutic process works by exploring your experiences and incorporating evidenced based practices, such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) while creating a unique therapeutic alliance that serves as the catalyst for change.
Despite the aforementioned information, one common misunderstanding is that therapy is only for those who have a diagnosable mental health condition. I have worked with many individuals who do not meet criteria for a mental illness but are still experiencing difficulties they want help with, whether it be general stress, adjusting to changes in their life, or seeking to improve the relationship they have with themselves and/or others. The therapeutic process is just as important and has led to great success in these instances, as well.
