Dr. Anderson's approach to psychotherapy is one that is based on biological, psychological, and social factors and is informed by current research.  Factors including physical health, emotional well-being, and interpersonal supports and relationships are all important to mental health. 

She uses “cognitive-behavioral therapy,” which focuses on both thought styles and behavioral patterns. 

The goals of psychotherapy will be developed and discussed with you. It is important that you feel you are working toward goals that are important and valuable to you. As much as possible, we will make these goals tangible and attainable.
