Dr. Ivy Hall
People may come to therapy feeling broken, useless, or worthless. My aim as a therapist is to help people
increase resilience, and find joy, beauty, and value in their lives. Whether you feel depressed or anxious, struggle with addictions, or because you’re just going through some tough times- I will provide a safe space and work with you to figure out how you can live your best life. I will approach our therapeutic relationship with authenticity, empathy, and non-judgment, my top values as a therapist. You will gain skills to stop the struggle with things that cause suffering, freeing you up to do what's of value to you.
I earned my Ph.D. in clinical psychology from the Pacific Graduate School of Psychology at Palo Alto University, where my studies emphasized traumatic stress, mindfulness, substance abuse issues, and diversity and community mental health. I am passionate about working with people to address trauma
and addictions- which tend to go hand-in-hand. I use a variety of evidence-based practices, including CBT, ACT, mindfulness, Brainspotting, and somatic approaches.
