Dr. Elizabeth O'Keefe believes that people have the ability to cope with painful emotions, to grow, and to heal from traumatic experiences.   


The primary areas of practice are helping people cope with anxiety and stress, and the effects of trauma.  Additional areas of specialization include grief counseling, reducing depression, and increasing feelings of self-esteem and self-worth.  She can assist you in finding healthy ways to manage difficult emotions, and feel mentally well.


Dr. O'Keefe is a licensed psychologist.  She uses a combination of empirically validated therapies, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Gottman Method Couples Therapy.  She is also certified in CBT-I, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia, which is an evidenced based treatment for insomnia that developed and tested by Dr. Gregg Jacobs' at Harvard Medical School.


Researchers have demonstrated that the most important factor in the success of therapy is the relationship between the client and the therapist.  The client needs to feel genuinely heard and respected, while trusting in the professional relationship.  Sometimes clients say that they've tried therapy previously and it "didn't work."  Often times these may be cases of a mismatch between the client and therapist.  Consider trying therapy again if you find yourself in this position.
