Dyad Psychology helps people who experience new transitions and feel overwhelmed with the demands of life - parenthood, school, relationships, or work. We help mothers find balance between the demands of motherhood. We help young adults manage the stressors of college-life and adulthood. In general, we helps individuals who are in the process of readjusting to new relationships, new roles, or identities, people who are looking to find ways to live more meaningful, fuller, and happier lives.
Our work is both evidence-based and holistic. We utilize a variety of strategies like Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), psychodynamic therapy, mindfulness, and attachment-based therapies.
Our core Values
Warmth and Kindness - “Kindness is a language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.” ~Mark Twain.
In our practice, we treat human beings who may be struggling with difficult relationships, challenging transitions, uncomfortable emotions, and concerns about the future. We believe that everyone deserves to be treated with care, consideration, friendliness, generosity, and empathy.
Trust - Trust is a central ingredient of all human relationships, including therapeutic relationships. It makes social life predictable, it creates a sense of community, and it makes it easier for people to work together. We believe that treatment must be conducted with integrity, a sense of security, safety, reliability, and hope.
Acceptance - “There is no formula of success, except, perhaps, an unconditional acceptance of life and what it brings.” ~Arthur Rubinstein.
Acceptance is the willingness to tolerate difficult feelings and thoughts. We believe that acceptance of what life brings without judgment, is the first step in working wisely and effectively to mitigate, heal and change.
Competence - We believe that, as a mental-health practice, we must exemplify the highest code of ethics and morals. We treat our clients based on scientific evidence, skillfully and respectfully. We strive to exemplify professionalism, accountability, sensitivity to diversity, and non-maleficence.
We strive to help people who are in the process of readjusting to new relationships, new roles, or identities, people who are looking to find ways to live more meaningful, fuller, and happier lives.
We focus on people's strive for a life of meaning. In our approach, happiness comes from a life well-lived, in accordance with our values and goals. And difficulties are an integral part of this journey. We believes that life is too short to wait until we feel better to make the changes that we need, to create new goals, and to live the life that we want.
