Amberly Panipento, Ph.D.

Clinical psychologist with 20 years of experience.  I specialize in individual therapy with adults, including older adults, and enjoy working with people experiencing anxiety, depression, and psychosis.  I focus on relationship concerns, coping skills, and adjustment concerns, including adjustment to chronic pain, illness, aging, and loss.


Treatment Philosophy

“It’s the relationship that heals.” — Irvin D. Yalom

I utilize a humanistic-existential approach to therapy, emphasizing the importance of empathy, warmth, and genuineness to form a therapeutic alliance.   I consider a collaborative therapeutic relationship to be the foundation for finding ways to create change.  After establishing the client’s goals, I incorporate validation, gentle challenges, coping skills, and feedback to help the person to make choices that will lead to a more meaningful and enriching life.
