Acute & Chronic Pain

Working with a psychologist on chronic pain treatment is usually one part of a larger treatment plan. Psychological approaches to managing pain help people to reduce pain, improve quality of life, take less medication, and feel more in control of life.


We use evidence-based treatments, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and mindfulness, to help people meet these goals. Of course, we can't "think" pain away, but for many people, our minds can aggravate pain and keep it sticking around longer. Pain treatment is typically 8-12 visits.
