Learn from experts in CBT groups

Heather Clague MD, MPH

I’m excited to partner with my patients to heal what needs to be healed and learn the skills to engage in the process of living a vital, meaningful life. My approach incorporates TEAM therapy (developed by Dr. David Burns), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), contemporary psychodynamic therapy and approaches such as mindfulness, visualization, and compassion practice, with attention to lifestyle and judicious use of medications when needed. I am particularly excited about the power of groups to facilitate growth and healing.
