My name is Phil Ahmsaty and I have been a Community-based Counselor with Red Mountain Behavioral Services for nearly 6 years. I am a Gila River Indian Community member, as well as an elder in the tribe. I have lived in the GRIC for most of my life. I am also actively involved in GRIC educational development. This unique relationship gives me a different perspective on counseling within the tribe. Working with various age groups is a strength I have developed as a counselor in my time working within the field. I am open-minded when working with others outside of the community. I hope to develop better relationships with other providers who service the same clientele.
