Welcome to Phillips Psychological Services. I am Tory Phillips, and I provide a variety of psychological services - all with the goal of helping children, adolescents, and their families gain insight into their behaviors and choices.
It is a privilege to help youth reach their potential and support families as they strengthen their relationships.
Meet Dr. Victoria “Tory” Phillips
I have worked with youth and families from many different backgrounds and believe in two fundamental truths: (1) modern life, in different ways, can be very hard for any person, regardless of one's circumstances, and (2) we are all trying our best, but sometimes we get “stuck.”
With a mix of compassion and humor, I strive to give my clients and their families new skills and a deeper understanding of their behaviors, to make life a little less hard. I focus on my client’s strengths and innate skills to help them address areas where they are more vulnerable.
I specialize in working with children and adolescents, and their families who are trying to understand and support them. I have extensive experience in providing therapy to youth who are experiencing posttraumatic stress, depression, anxiety, thoughts of self-harm, and difficulties adjusting to major life events, such as parental separation/divorce, changing schools, and expression of their gender identity. In addition to experience in psychoeducational, neuropsychological, and trauma-impact assessments, I also have certifications in forensic psychology assessment for both civil and criminal courts.
I am licensed to practice in New York and New Jersey, and provide therapy both in-person and via telehealth.
