About Phil

Phil Boissiere

Phil Boissiere, MFT is an adult ADHD and Couples Counseling specialist based in the San Francisco Bay Area. He brings his zest for life, professionalism, and humor to all aspects of his work. He dedicates himself to helping people overcome life’s hurdles with purpose and passion. He believes that when motivated people are given the tools to succeed they will reach their goals and live a life that is rich with meaning. However, when those same people find themselves bogged down in a directionless therapeutic process, they can become “lost in therapy” and actually suffer because of it. His goal-focused approach and use of evidence based practices, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and skills training form an empowering therapeutic process. He also brings education and an understanding  of neurology and it’s role in mental health and happiness to his clients.

Phil constantly works to deepen his knowledge of brain science and human behavior. He has pursued expertise in brain science, advanced training in the Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics (NMT), and adult ADHD specific training at the Massachusetts General Hospital Psychiatry Academy. He also has worked to train other professionals in the use of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, group therapy, and adult ADHD assessment and treatment.
