"They were struggling relationally and wondering if they had made a mistake in getting married in the first place, so they met with one of our counselors in a series of sessions.  The result:  they believe in their marriage now and their relationship is better than they could have imagined."

Meet the Counselors

Mason Phillips, LMFT, CHt

Mason is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who received both his BA in Psychology:  Pre-Counseling and Masters of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy from Oklahoma Baptist University.  Mason's early career as a therapist began in Shawnee and other rural regions of SE Oklahoma treating families with young children.  Although he has always been driven toward the work of substance abuse treatment, Mason became more devoted to the work after providing therapy services to individuals in the Treatment Court Programs of Oklahoma County.  Later, Mason would become one of the first therapists for Arcadia Trails Integris, a residential treatment center for people beginning long-term recovery from substances.  Mason has become more available as a guest speaker on the importance of the overall destigmatizing treatment for mental health and substance abuse. Given his training in family and relationships, Mason believes the way we relate to ourselves, others, and especially God, has the power to embed lasting change for any problem.  Mason is a Christian believer who is confident God cares about mental health and relationships of His people, making clinical counseling all the more important in the mission of the church at large.
