Phil has always been drawn to help people who are interested in working on themselves to improve their lives and he loves to facilitate that change. He formally began this work as a professional vocal coach, music producer and mentor after graduating from the Manhattan School of Music. After many successful years, he decided to pursue a career in mental health, studying for his Masters in Social Work at Fordham, as there are many parallels from his work in music and therapy. Whether you are making yourself vulnerable by trying to sing or to be honest with yourself about what is challenging you in life, he can help you to achieve your goals. He helps clients to reach their full potential, either as an artist, partner, parent, sibling, or friend.
Phil calls New York City his home. He loves coffee and is on a lifelong quest to make the perfect latte. He is a trained opera singer and plays keyboards, trumpet, cello, and percussion.
