Troy Wood, MFTI
Clinical Psychotherapist | IMF91470

I will help promote your understanding of how your formative childhood experiences have shaped you using a psychodynamic and attachment framework. I also integrate cognitive behavioral, narrative, and solution-focused techniques and mindfulness practices to this end. I have extensive experience helping clients address relationship issues, anxiety, depression, LGBTQ-related issues, and trauma.

Central to our work is creating a trusting and collaborative relationship to help you achieve your goals. We will build an authentic therapeutic relationship based on my empathic understanding and unconditional acceptance of you. I provide a safe and affirming space for you to deepen your understanding of yourself and your relationships, while helping you discover personalized solutions to your problems with a strength-based and client-centered approach.

Now Hiring New Associates
 

I am now hiring new Psychological Assistants.  Candidates will have completed their doctoral programs and are ready to earn post-doctoral hours.  Although I will refer clients to you, ideally, you will have clients to bring into the practice as a client-base.  Please send an introduction letter and your CV to Laura Salazar at lauralsalazar@gmail.com.
