About Philip Baker, LMFT

Philip is a board-certified marital and family therapist. He specializes in adolescents and adults who are managing life transitions, anxiety, depression, trauma, and other stress-related issues. Most of his patients are LGBTQ+, non-monogamous, and members of the kink community. Philip utilizes dialectical behavioral therapy, humanistic therapy, person-centered therapy, solution-focused therapy, and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing. He understands, from his own experiences, that mental health and grief are invisible burdens no one can bear independently. Philip loves cooking and baking obsessively and can always lose himself in comic books or a great crime mystery.
