Professional statement

Dr. Philip Hammel is a clinical psychologist who specializes working with late adolescents and young and middle-aged professionals. His clients tend to be motivated for personal growth in their career development as well as their educational, social, and intrapersonal lives. He believes everyone can create better work-life balances. He will work with his clients to tap into their strengths and inner wisdom so that they can be effective communicators and lead successful and fulfilled lives.

Dr. Hammel has a warm and easy-going nature that can create positive therapeutic alliances between himself and his clients. He is a naturally curious individual who values collaborative dialogue. He wants to understand how his clients see themselves and the chaotic nature of the world we live in. He will pose various questions and topics that are relevant to his clients. These can aid in self-discovery and paths towards improved self-care, better relationships, and cognitive flexibility. During sessions he will also incorporate and welcome aspects of pop culture such as song lyrics, podcast topics, and blogs covering mental health or self-care. Occasionally he will share his love of soccer and being a father and welcomes learning about his client's passions and the roles they play in their lives. He believes a strong therapeutic relationship supports successful treatment outcomes.

He earned his doctorate in clinical psychology (Psy.D.) from the California School of Professional Psychology in 2011 and became licensed in 2013. He is licensed in 32 states through a PSYPACT license, as well as in California where he did his graduate education and training.

Dr. Hammel made the transition to telehealth therapy during the pandemic in 2020 and has continued with video sessions due to finding the many benefits this modality provides, especially for work from home individuals.

Message to clients

Hello! I am happy for you to be seeking therapy. Here is a little more about myself. I have enjoyed connecting with others through conversation for as long as I can remember. Feeling heard, validated, and cared for is something I want everyone to experience. I feel this way whether it’s my family and friends, my clients, or someone in my day-to-day life. I enjoy helping people create space between themselves and their thoughts, emotions and experiences. This can allow new perspectives to emerge and create new insights, skills, and a plan to make positive changes.

Therapy is a unique experience to talk to someone not involved in your life so that you may challenge yourself and be open and vulnerable. But I recognize how difficult it can be to open up in therapy, let alone to get started. Many of my clients have never been in therapy previously. Some didn't feel the need for it until realizing how stressed they were from the various world events of recent years. You might be asking yourself questions like "what am I supposed to say in session?," and "will I be judged for something I think or want to work on in therapy?" I like to help people feel comfortable to be themselves in therapy. To ask themselves difficult questions. To use humor (when appropriate). To be compassionate with themselves and others. I hope to join you on this journey!
