Education is a vital component of the services we offer at The Aspen Center. In addition to holding advanced degrees and licensure in our respective disciplines (i.e., clinical psychology, clinical social work), our clinicians are committed to life-long learning. We keep ourselves abreast of the latest research and innovations in our field, which allows us to offer cutting-edge treatments.
Additionally, we seek to educate the individuals we treat, sharing information for your empowerment and long-term wellness.
Understanding and appreciating the mind-body connection is the philosophical foundation for every treatment at The Aspen Center. Our approach is informed by research validating the complex and inseparable relationship existing between mind and body.
Hence, we develop treatments based on the knowledge that thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and attitudes positively or negatively affect biological functioning—that is, our minds affect our physical health. Conversely, our physical actions positively and negatively affect our mental health.
Each individualized treatment begins with a comprehensive assessment based on this model of health. At The Aspen Center, we are interested in the “whole person,” we recognize that your symptoms represent only part of the picture. We consider areas of your life that may be out of balance, and work with you to develop strategies that promote balance and wellness.
At The Aspen Center, we treat more than your mind.
