Dr. Clayton's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Clayton "I provide accelerated therapy to overcome depression, anxiety, and all that holds you back from living a richer, more satisfying life. Together we will create the positive, connected therapeutic relationship that will help you to build your own self-compassion, overcome your fears, and transcend painful experience, allowing you to move forward into a new, richer experience of life."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Clayton "I focus on working, as rapidly as possible, with people who are highly motivated for change and growth; I strive to work with them in a way that is collaborative and warmly interactive. I provide support, insight and useful feedback to help my clients truly resolve the difficulty that brought them to therapy.

My approach is grounded in authentic relating between client and psychotherapist and respect for the healing potentials within each person; it is guided by the wisdom of Mindfulness practice and the discipline of Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy. While no approach to psychotherapy can guarantee positive results, often long-standing and even lifelong difficulties can be overcome in a matter of months using this approach.

I find tremendous satisfaction in helping clients to work through their current difficulties to connect more authentically to themselves and others, and to find personal meaning and happiness."

Dr. Clayton Says:
"

My clients' privacy is of critical importance to me. I will never ask my clients to provide online ratings, post review comments, or give testimonials -- though anyone may, of course, do so of their own choosing. I welcome your feedback during our sessions together so that we can build upon what is working well for you in therapy, or we can address any areas for improvement.
