Professional statement

Dr. Holly Batchelder is a licensed clinical psychologist with a warm and dynamic approach centered around the needs of each client. Her clientele often includes individuals feeling stuck or overwhelmed, couples navigating relationship challenges, and those seeking deeper connections with themselves and others. In therapy, clients find a safe and judgment-free environment to tackle the barriers that impede their progress.

Her therapeutic approach combines her extensive research background at Stanford University and practical experience at Denver Health, culminating in a PhD from Palo Alto University. Dr. Holly specializes in anxiety, OCD, phobias, and couples counseling, utilizing evidence-based techniques such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Exposure Therapy.

Her professional journey is also informed by personal experiences, including overcoming a significant accident, which deepens her understanding of chronic pain and identity transformations.


Message to clients

Hi, I'm Dr. Holly. I believe in the transformative power of therapy and the importance of a strong, supportive therapeutic relationship. As we work together, my hope for you is to discover your inner strength and the capacity for self-compassion. I'm here to help you navigate through life's challenges, whether you're dealing with anxiety, relationship issues, or seeking a deeper understanding of yourself.

In our sessions, expect a collaborative approach. We'll explore your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, working towards reshaping unhelpful patterns while cultivating mindfulness and actions that align with your core values.
