Siera Phillips, MS Ed., LCPC
My name is Siera Phillips, I am a licensed clinical professional counselor contracted with Taking Control Counseling. I began my academic journey at Northern Illinois University where I received my Masters of Science in Education with a specialization in mental health counseling . After graduation, I worked as a mental health clinician for several years at a community mental health agency with people who struggled with chronic mental illness. It is from this point that my interest in people's wellness began to deepen. People shared their challenges with parenthood, work, and relationships. Teens opened up about the complexities of their world and how they were struggling with issues such as body image, relationships, and anxiety. These intimate conversations lead me to provide a space specifically for teens (15+), adults, and couples who struggle with depression, anxiety, stress, identity confusion, relationship stress, domestic violence, and life transitions.
