Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Regarding the person as a whole, I take into consideration the impact of early family experiences and more recent events that may contribute to distress in the patient. Moves, changes in work or family relationships may present challenges that upset one's coping skills. A caring, intuitive approach combined with solid clinical skills allows one to regain a sense of grounding and an atmosphere conducive to healing and growth.

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."
