Garrett Pollert, Ph.D.
I have expertise and experience in the areas of eating disorders (Anorexia, Bulimia, Binge Eating Disorder), problematic/emotional eating, anxiety, depression, and trauma. I work with clients to create a safe, nonjudgmental space where we can openly and honestly work through issues that have been causing pain and suffering. As a therapist, I view myself as a collaborator – I’m the expert on the intervention, while you’re the expert on yourself – and we work together to achieve the goals that you set for the both of us. All of my treatments are evidence-based, meaning that the only interventions I conduct are the ones that have research showing that they work, how well they work, and for whom they work best. Typically, this involves approaches using Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). Each of these therapies is an excellent standalone package, and I specifically tailor each to your unique history and needs.
Prior to full-time Private Practice, I previously worked as a Professor, conducting research on my clinical specialties, and I also worked as a Clinic Director who ran a psychology training clinic and trained graduate students how to conduct therapy. Outside my role as a Clinical Psychologist, you will find me spending quality time with my wife, watching and reading science fiction, doting on my two miniature dachshunds, and looking for cool rocks and fossils in public places.
