Dr. Siefert’s private practice at Arbor Psychology Group will focus on the assessment and treatment of emotional, relational, and personality-based concerns. He utilizes an individualized, assessment-informed approach to psychotherapy, insuring that he tailors his therapeutic approach to the specific needs of each client he works with. More specifically, clients working with Dr. Siefert complete a series of brief assessments over their first few sessions, designed to assist them in identifying their goals for therapy, and increase the overall efficacy of the process. This saves clients time and energy, facilitates self-understanding, and helps clients identify strengths they can leverage to address their challenges.
