Philip Couch, FNP

Susan-Couch

I went back to school to become a health care provider later in life due to my passion for helping others. I found myself at Duke University obtaining an BN and an NP. I now am board certified as an FNP and am working on getting my psychiatric certification as a PMHNP.

I have great compassion for the patients who I have worked with who suffer with chronic illness. I want to continue to work with this population and incorporate mental health services. My experience has taught me that individuals who have chronic illness often have mental health issues that are untreated or overlooked. I believe by providing informed medical care and informed mental health care individuals will find themselves experiencing better overall health.

As a clinic we want to be better at collaborating among ourselves, allowing the clients to not feel pressured to keep informing each specialist about what the other providers are doing. We also hope by providing more collaborative care fewer mistakes will be made and the person will experience better outcomes.

My role is to help individuals better understand their inner self and change those cognitive distortions that often result in negative emotional states. Thoughts often lead to emotional shifts and over time these emotions can have a significant impact on our physical health. Addressing a person’s mental health can result in positive outcomes for their physical health.

I have always been able to help others identify the life patterns that bring them the most distress. I enjoy working with a variety of individuals who bring with them different areas of inner conflict. My specialties include but are not limited to: ADHD in Women and Adults; Eating Disorders; Complex Trauma including Dissociative Disorders; Substance Use Disorders; Anxiety; Depression; Marital Problems; Self Acceptance issues. I have a variety of therapeutic approaches to help individuals and couples. I do not believe “one size fits all” when it comes to finding the approach that will best fit each unique individual. I have training and experience in CBT, DBT, EMDR, Dissociative treatment approaches, IFS, Somatic Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, The Gottman Method for Marital Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy to name a few.

Whether you’re looking for support or guidance through a particularly difficult time, or you’re open to a real change in your life and where you’re going, together, we can work to achieve dreams, and meet your goals.

If you are looking for change in your life; how to overcome past trauma; how to take the next step; how to better understand yourself and what you want out of life; you have come to the right place. I have been blessed with a life of unique and extraordinary experiences. These experience have allowed me to see life from a broader perspective. This perspective coupled with my knowledge and training has helped me see significant changes in those who come to me for help. My goal with clients is to help them uncover aspects of themselves they have yet to discover and how to understand this inner landscape. It is my goal to help you use your inner self to help you thrive instead of survive. This is done in a non judgmental and exploratory environment which allows individuals to feel safe enough to explore all of themselves.
