Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I have been in practice for over 20 years providing therapy for individuals, couples, latency-age children and teens, as well as doing groups. My orientation is existential-humanistic in that I believe when individuals are provided with a healing environment, they ten to grow toward self-actualization. A large part of the effectiveness of my work is based on the relationship that develops between me and my clients. This isn’t to suggest that everyone is a good “fit,” but that I view the connection as vital to a successful outcome. I tend to work with people in a collaborative manner, not a prescriptive one. I do feel fortunate to be able to truly say that I love what I do.

Phillip Copitch, PhD

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist 
Redding, CA 96001

Approximately half of Dr. Copitch's practice involves children and families. The other half is devoted to individual therapy. And, as Dr. Copitch often jokes, "the third half of my work is devoted to school consultations, business consultations, and corporate trainings."
