Most of us wait over 6 years of being unhappy before reaching out for help from a therapist. But research shows that therapy can help you feel happier, less stressed, and more satisfied in only a few months. Don’t keep waiting in unhappiness, let’s work together now.
Charlene Collibee, PhD is a licensed Clinical Psychologist in Rhode Island with specialized training in working with young adults, couples, and parents. Research shows our relationships with others are linked to our mental and even physical health throughout our lives. We may be carrying the trauma of childhoods and past relationships into our current lives unknowingly. Dr. Collibee uses gold-standard research-based interventions, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), interpersonal therapy (IPT), The Gottman Method, and Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT) approaches to help break unwanted patterns and empower you with the skills and tools for healthy fulfilling relationships with those around you. In recent years there’s been a breakthrough in research, demonstrating that often when you learn how to have better relationships you in turn feel less depressed, less anxious, and more able to enjoy the things that are important to you.
Dr. Collibee obtained her PhD from the University of Denver and completed postdoctoral training at the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University. Her research and clinical work focused on the study of interpersonal relationships have been featured in top news and media outlets (i.e., NPR, The Times). She has published over 25 peer-reviewed articles in academic journals.
