Welcome to the web site of Psychotherapist Dr. Anders Beier, LPC
I work with adults and adolescents individually and with couples. I carefully tailor therapy to the needs of each individual client and in cooperation with the client. Therapy is mainly grounded in the tradition of Depth Psychology. Built on the work of Carl G. Jung, this form of therapy focuses on finding meaning in life. A lack of meaning in one’s life can appear as symptoms – like a warning signal – such as depression, anxiety, nightmares, substance abuse or interpersonal conflicts.
Dream work is an essential part of this therapeutic model and a gateway to understanding the unconscious, which works through us and surrounds us. Keeping a dream journal is encouraged through the process of therapy.
I have extensive training and experience in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and in Dialectic Behavioral Therapy (DBT). I can use these modalities with almost any kind of psychological suffering if they are beneficial in resolving a particular psychological issue.
Finally, I incorporate elements of Eastern Contemplative Psychology in therapy and frequently recommend meditation as a tool to understand our suffering and greater place in life.
