My Approach to Helping
Dr. Gurley, Psy.D. is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist who specializes in treating adults who suffer from anxiety, depression, childhood trauma, sexual trauma, chronic illness, and issues related to identity. Although she treats clients of all ages, much of her success has come from treating young adults from 17 to 40 years old as they transition into their ideal version of self. Dr. Gurley is also experienced within the LGBTQ community, and has provided training on these topics at a local and national level.
Dr. Gurley uses an approach combining Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Mindful Self-Compassion to tailor plans for each client.
“I work with individuals to help them focus on aligning their lives with their values. So often depression, anxiety, and trauma can keep us from engaging in the aspect of our lives that give us the most fulfillment. I help individuals to not be consumed by unhelpful thoughts and emotions, and move toward their own goals. My practice is rooted in all evidence-based treatments, such as CBT and ACT, however above all, I work collaboratively with my clients to tailor a plan that will best fit their life.”
