Gabriella Phillips is a Certified RTT Hypnotherapist specializing in emotional eating, self esteem , compulsive overeating, and weight issues.
We all know that the majority of dieters inevitably gain back all the weight they’ve lost and more. Emotional eating is a coping mechanism, a survival tactic. This self soothing technique is learned early in life to numb uncomfortable feelings. Dieting focuses on the external rather than the internal cues which fuel overeating. The repetitive cycle of gaining and losing weight leads to feelings of hopelessness, shame, failure, and desperation. In order to shift dysfunctional eating patterns, one must identify underlying experiences and belief systems that perpetuate emotional eating.

Do you struggle with feelings of anxiety, depression, guilt, or low self-esteem? Do you find yourself avoiding social engagements or so preoccupied with excessive worrying? Finding ways to navigate these difficult feelings can help you get back on track. I use a psychodynamic approach and CBT that focuses on uncovering patterns of behavior and ways of relating to ourselves and others that are often outside of our awareness. I also consider how our past impacts who we are today. Through acceptance and empathy, we will establish a trusting therapeutic relationship and work together toward your personal growth and self-discovery.

"Mental strength is not the ability to stay out of the darkness, it's the ability to sit present in the darkness knowing the light will shine again." If you are seeking help, often times it can be an overwhelming and humbling experience. Finding a therapist that you feel comfortable with and at ease can be challenging, but once it is a good match, you will be able to overcome your obstacles. Remember, you are the expert in your own life, and being in therapy we will improve some aspect of it. With empathy, trust, accountability and respect, we will work together to see the light.

It's great that you are taking an important step to reach out for support. Over the years of working with clients I have learned that many people experience hardship, stress, conflict, and/or pain during their lifetime that they find difficult to navigate on their own. Reaching out for support is a healthy and positive step! I know that every person's story is unique and I value getting to know each client individually so that I can provide tailored and meaningful therapy. It would be an honor to partner with you on your journey! Please note that I have moved to an all telehealth practice using a secure video platform.

I believe that therapy is a collaborative journey that builds upon one’s personal strengths and goals to find clarity to questions or challenges you may be facing. I believe therapy is a safe space to explore your true identity, and find helpful ways to be your best self. My goal in therapy is to provide you with a safe and comfortable place to process and talk freely and openly about any challenges you may be facing, and work together to find helpful ways to manage them, or at least make them a little less impactful on your well-being.

Self Esteem Therapists
Self-esteem lives on a spectrum: Not enough self-regard (or low self esteem) can lead people to become depressed, or to tolerate abusive situations and relationships. Too much self-love (or high self-esteem), results in an off-putting sense of entitlement and an inability to learn from failure. And it's occasionally a sign of clinical narcissism. Quite the opposite of being shy or shyness, yet still on the same spectrum.
