Dr. Philip Townsend


About Me

During my private practice of over 40 years, I have worked with couples in treatment for relationship issues. These couples were both married or single, and that included individuals of same sex orientation. My main approach with couples is to identify the strengths that each person brings to the relationship, and develop tools that will enhance problem resolution.

Dr. Townsend is great. He has a gentle caring way of addressing both my wife and I. He does a great job noticing strengths and reminding us of our successes. He always remembers what we have talked about in previous sessions to help us grow together.

Dr. Townsend is an astute clinician who knows how to get to the root of issues, remain fair and balanced in his approach so that both partners come out the session feeling heard and with a greater understanding of the relationship dynamics. I highly recommend him.
