Alisha L. Wagner, Ph.D.
My Style and Approach
Whether you wish to deal with long-term problems, address new challenges, focus on a specific issue or learn more about yourself, therapy can provide relief, clarity and insight. While people can be at different stages in their readiness to make a change, therapy can be very helpful in providing support and direction at any stage of change. I believe that a non-judgmental and collaborative approach allows me to meet people where they are in this process. Warmth, humor, and patience characterize my therapy style.
I integrate a variety of theoretical orientations including behavioral, cognitive behavioral, interpersonal, and mindfulness-based therapy. My eclectic approach to treatment is shaped by an individual's needs.
I conduct individual therapy with adults of all ages presenting with the following issues:
Depression and other Mood Disorders
Stress and Anxiety Disorders (phobias, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder)
Stress associated with major life changes and transitions
Adjustment to a medical diagnosis/illness
Stress of balancing a family and career
