Meet Phyllis Eicher, LMHCA, PhD Candidate...
Finding a counselor that you feel comfortable with is important for building a safe connection to gain insight and make changes.
I provide an open perspective, compassionate listening and a safe space for you to share your concerns. Through the process of therapy, I hope for you to gain deeper understanding of yourself and find the support you need.
Philosophy & Therapeutic Approach
My approach to therapy is from a humanistic and systems perspective. I utilize many modalities from psychodynamic therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, relational psychology, mindfulness therapy, somatic psychology, EMDR, Gottman, EFT and neuroscience.
I view counseling as an active relationship between both people. It is through our relationships that we have an opportunity to learn more about ourselves. I respect you are the expert of your life experience.
My role as a therapist is to provide a safe and challenging environment for clients to bring awareness to problem areas, identify patterns, beliefs, and make changes. Therapy is shaped around your goals which I will help guide and draw from your strengths so you may meet those goals.
Experience, Education, and Training
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate in Washington state, a Licensed Practicing Counselor in the State of Idaho and a National Certified Counselor. I have a Masters in Counseling from Idaho State University and I am currently working on my doctorate degree in Counseling.
I work with children, teens, adults, and couples and enjoys working with diverse cultures and the LGBTQ+ community. I have extensive experience and training in areas such as trauma, attachment, anxiety, depression, neuroscience and life transitions.
