About Me

Biographical Statement

I specialize in anxietydepression, trauma-related disorders and pain-related disorders.

Philip J Lanzisera, Ph.D., ABPP received his Ph.D in Clinical Psychology at the University of Detroit. He went on to complete clinical internships at Children's Center of Wayne County and North Oakland Community Mental Health/Clinton Valley Center. Dr. Lanzisera serves as a supervisor for residents for their long-term patients. He also plays a large role in teaching psychotherapy to the residents in a series of didactic lectures.

When asked why he enjoys working with residents, he responded with "as I have gotten older and gained more experience, I've come to realize that I could have been a much better clinician had I had the experience and knowledge I now have. Working with psychiatric residents and psychology interns gives me hope that what I have learned will give someone else a head start in the process of becoming a good clinician. I like to share my enjoyment of the clinical process and support others in gaining the confidence they need to enjoy it as well."

Dr. Philip Lanzisera is approved as a licensed telemedicine provider in both the states of Michigan and Florida.

Care Philosophy

Very often, our problems come from how we see ourselves in the world. What do we feel we have control over? What do we feel we need to be capable of living well? What are we most afraid of both outside of ourselves and inside of ourselves? I want to understand how you view yourself and your world. Then, we can sit down and figure out how we can help you to make changes that help you to live better.
