Amy E Brook, PhD, Psychologist in Buffalo
I believe that sometimes healing involves telling your story to a compassionate, skilled listener, and that sometimes being stuck in the story is part of the problem. I meet each person I work with where they are in their process and offer skilled collaboration and support in deepening their awareness of their own internal experience in ways that facilitate healing and living a fuller, more satisfying life. I have a general practice with a speciality in trauma treatment and am happy to consult to other professionals.
I draw on mindfulness based approaches to treatment ranging from the skills-based, behavioral strategies of Dialectical Behavior Therapy to the values-driven approach of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. Somatic Experiencing offers a powerful way to access the body's organic intelligence and restore balance after trauma.
I am not currently accepting individual clients, but in early November I will be starting an Acceptance and Commitment Therapy group focusing on working with depression. For more information or to schedule a thirty minute screening session, please use the contact information above.
