IPS is a group practice led by Dr. Elizabeth Willems. The practice focuses on traumatic memories, depression, stress management, relationship problems, and acculturation. IPS clinicians see residents of CA, NY, MD, FL, USA and select countries via phone/video. Director Elizabeth Willems holds a doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Alliant International University. She completed clinical training at the Center for Multicultural Training in Psychology, Harvard Longwood Psychiatry Massachusetts Mental Health Center, Boston Medical Center Department of Behavioral Medicine, and Casa del Sol as well as other community clinics.
We take an integrative approach to our work with clients. Integrative therapy is comprised of a combination of various psychological theories. One of these is called psychodynamic therapy. We also include EMDR and aspects of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) in our work with clients. Finally, we incorporate a social psychological approach to our services.
If you are unsure of what type of support you need, feel confused about what steps you would next like to take in life, feel uncomfortable or "just down," we can talk about ways to help you feel better. We are available to speak during a 15-minute consultation/orientation without cost or hold a full fee 45 to 50-minute session.
Elizabeth A. Willems es una Doctora en Psicología. Antes de proseguir con sus estudios de doctorado en psicología clínica, recibió una maestría en Relaciones Interculturales y una licenciatura en Sociología. Como científico del comportamiento, se sintió fascinada por la manera en que los antecedentes culturales pueden contribuir al desarrollo individual. En la actualidad, ofrece psicoterapia para adolescentes y adultos en una clínica privada en CDMX o online para los residentes de Califoria o Nueva York, EUA.
En el trabajo que la Dra. Willems realiza con sus pacientes, aplica lo que se conoce como un enfoque integral. La Terapia Integrativa está compuesta por una combinación de diversas teorías psicológicas. Una de ellas se llama terapia psicodinámica, la otra es la terapia Cognitivo-Conductual (TCC). Dra. Willems tambien incorpora un enfoque psicológico social.
Por favor, lláme a Dra. Willems para discutir los honorarios, pagos, y seguros. Si usted necesita una tarifa reducida, le invita a que se lo haga saber. Se reserva un cierto número de conultas especiales para algunos pacientes basandose en la necesidad y los ingresos. Si no puede acomodar su situación financiera, entonces le dará una canalización adecuada.
