Welcome! My name is Dr. Mazer, a Registered Mental Health Counseling Intern and Post Doctoral Psychology Resident. I help people through psychotherapy and psychoeducation recognize their strengths and identify growth edges where new insight and skills can be acquired. Whether you are struggling with your relationship with yourself or with those who matter the most to you, we will navigate the complexities of these dynamics to help you reach your therapy goals and the therapeutic outcomes you desire.
I am Gottman level 2 trained and use an integrative approach to couples therapy that is heavily influenced by Gottman research and methods. The Gottman Method is an evidence-based approach that helps couples improve their relationship by strengthening communication skills, learning practical skills to resolve conflicts in a mutually respectful way, and by increasing emotional intimacy and connection so that shared dreams, values, and goals can be realized and pursued.
When working with both couples and individuals I use a person centered approach which means that you will not be judged and that your agency is central to the process.
I also use a psychodynamic approach which means that we will look at your relationship and life experiences to better understand how you experience yourself and other people. This will help us better understand what you might be bringing to your relationships and what might be showing up for you, helping you, and maybe even holding you back.
I also use cognitive behavioral therapy to check out and address ways that your thinking might be influencing your feelings and relationship outcomes that are not working for you. We want your thinking to work for you not against you especially during times of stress.
