About Dr. Lederer
People ask me all the time if I believe in change. Not only do I believe in change, but I see it manifested in my clients. Being a facilitator of change has been my life work. It is why I have been in this field for nearly two decades continuing to carve out new techniques, tools, and insights to help facilitate my clients' journeys through peaks and valleys. I bring a blend of both traditional psychotherapy infused with modern-day techniques. I use the combination of my academic background, years of clinical experience, teaching and supervising psychology students, and intuition to help guide individuals, couples, and group therapy sessions.

Finding the right therapist with whom one feels they can trust and connect with is vital, as healing takes place when one feels the safest. I take a relational and insight-oriented approach to work with clients. I believe that in order for therapy to be most effective, both therapist and client must work collaboratively.
