Caroline U. Phillips, MDiv., MSW, LCSW
Caroline Phillips grew up the deep south, but most recently moved to North Carolina from Chicago Illinois where she lived for 13 years and received a Masters degrees in Divinity (McCormick Theological Seminary ’12) and Social Work (Loyola University Chicago ’13) . Caroline worked as a hospital chaplain and chaplain educator for six years and prior to that worked in Community Mental Health on the Southside of Chicago. She enjoys working with people from diverse backgrounds, cultures, and faiths. She believes cultural humility and cultural competency are key to understanding the whole person and building a strong foundation with her clients.
She enjoys working with adults and older teenagers and has a lot of experience working with the older adult population. Helping clients with issues such as anxiety, trauma, depression, and life transitions are of particular interest to her. She uses evidenced based therapies such as CBT and motivational interviewing. With her years of experience in chaplaincy, she is very comfortable incorporating spirituality (if important to the client) and helping those heal from past religious trauma.
