Philip R. Budd, Psy.D. is on the faculty and coordinator for behavioral health for the St. Anthony hospital Family Medicine Residency Program. For 18 years, Dr Budd was the Director of the Graduate Programs in Counseling at Southern Nazarene University. After graduating from Biola University with both a M.A. and Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology, Dr. Budd was in private practice in Southern California for 10 years. After the Murrah building bombing in Oklahoma City, Dr. Budd volunteered through the American Red Cross and Nazarene Disaster Response. Subsequent to 9/11, Dr. Budd was sent as a volunteer to train NYC mental health workers on how to better work with trauma. Other areas of scholarship and writing include, the study of forgiveness, the integration of spirituality and counseling, compassion fatigue in professional caregivers and Narcissistic Personality Disorders. A strong relationship with the counselor is essential for the counseling process. I believe that my most effective work is with people who struggle with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, family of origin issues and trauma. I work extensively with clients who have personality disorders (ingrained patterns of self defeating behavior). My practice is geared toward adolescents 13 years old through senior adults. I work with individuals and couples/families. I am working on certification in providing couple’s therapy utilizing the Gottman method. I work in various ways with people and have had training in CBT therapy, Gestalt therapy, Couples counseling and psychoanalytic psychotherapy. Counseling incorporates discovery of self defeating behaviors, learning new patterns of behavior to replace those self defeating processes and looking forward to a hopeful future.
