AJ Phipps is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist serving a diverse group of clients in the San Francisco Bay. Many paths converged to bring AJ to the field of psychotherapy including time spent volunteering in the community, their own journey as a client in therapy, and their decades of studying all things esoteric and mystical.

AJ graduated from CIIS’ Bachelor of Arts and Integral Counseling Psychology (M.A.) programs. Both programs placed an emphasis on cultural humility, holistic healing and the responsibility we have to each other as citizens of this globe. They served as a Writing Fellow and Senior Writing Fellow at CIIS’ Center for Writing and Scholarship and thrived in CIIS’ learning communities.

AJ’s training as a psychotherapist began at The Integral Counseling Center in San Francisco, a low fee clinic where they served socially and psychologically diverse individuals, couples, and families. They have since built a private practice which serves adults, teens, and families. Their work is founded in relational psychodynamics, informed by strong social justice, feminist values, and often incorporates Astrology and other symbolic ways of knowing.
