Hello and welcome! My name is Settie Phillips. I am a registered psychotherapist in the State of Colorado, a Nationally Certified Counselor, Licensed Professional Counselor Candidate, and a member in good standing of the American Counseling Association and Colorado Counseling Association. I received my master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of Northern Colorado. My undergraduate degree in Sociology was also earned at UNC. My areas of expertise/interest include personality disorders, abuse, divorce and custody, couples and families, children and adolescents, postpartum.
I work very closely with social workers, attorneys, guardians ad litem, mental health professionals, midwives and doulas in various areas of my private practice. In addition to my private practice, I also work as a mental health counselor in an elementary school, and volunteer my time with CASA of the Pikes Peak Region as a special advocate. Perhaps my most rewarding volunteer effort at this time is serving as both the facilitator and mental health professional for the C-FIT class which is required by the 4th Judicial District for anyone going through child-related litigation in family court.
I have spend time in every courtroom in Colorado’s 4th Judicial District observing the process and familiarizing myself with the style of the many judges, attorneys, child and family investigators, and other professionals who regularly participate in family court cases.
As a firm believer in community, connection, and the idea that we can do better, I founded an organization in Colorado Springs focused on bringing factual, evidenced-based information about divorce and custody issues to Family Court professionals.
I believe that mental health is a crucial component in the overall health and well-being of our own lives as well as our communities and society as a whole, and I am so grateful to be able to share my passion with you.
