Helping you become your own nurturing and loving Inner Parent

Do you ever feel like a little kid in an adult body?

We enter adulthood with wounds from childhood. Everyone does because there is no perfect parent or caretaker.

Additionally, wounds due to developmental trauma or emotional neglect, can linger. Leaving us filled with pain, shame, sadness, and loneliness.

Learning to care for yourself in the way you always needed is a bold step towards resolution of old wounds.

Re-Parenting your Inner Child is a process of self-compassion, kindness, and noticing all of your reactions. As you practice Inner Parenting you begin to gently turn towards yourself... instead of away from your pain.

I'm Dr. Trish Phillips and I draw relational concepts as The Doodle Doc

Calling on over 20 years of Clinical Private Practice specializing in developmental trauma, attachment wounds and dissociation. With advanced training in Interpersonal Neurobiology, Dissociative Disorders, and Mindfulness, I offer emotional education through Doodles.

As a coach, I help people re-connect with their inner child and their inner world to unlock the deeper wisdom within.

As an Emotions Teacher the Doodles help me explore and explain concepts that are often difficult to understand with words alone.

The little Doodle people speak to an implicit place inside us all... a place beyond words.
