Laura Lovato, PhD

I have over ten years of experience working in hospitals and primary care settings as both a colleague and therapist to health professionals. One of the most meaningful professional experiences I’ve had was working with medical trainees. I understand the sacrifice and resilience it takes to be a health professional and the challenges of managing personal well-being under the weight of exceptional responsibility and stress. I have an integrative approach to therapy, using experiential, relational, and cognitive-behavioral techniques to help clients develop practical skills that support a greater sense of clarity and confidence and help them reconnect with the meaning in their professional and personal lives. I strive to be transparent, genuine, and warm and hope my clients feel seen and appreciated for their humanness and not a diagnosis.

Alex Young, PsyD

I am a licensed health psychologist originally from San Antonio, Texas. I have spent the last four years working within the primary care/hospital setting. I have experience providing communication coaching and teaching to internal medicine residents. I interface with medical providers and staff daily in my job as a health psychologist. When working with individuals I strive to work towards goals briefly and collaboratively to ensure progress. I specialize in brief behavior change, mood disorder, sleep, and LGBT issues. When not busy with work, I enjoy exploring different cities and being a foodie.

Julie Morris, PhD

As a native New Yorker, I like to say that I was born interested in human behavior; that interest eventually led to a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Wyoming (Go Pokes!). Since that time, I have worked exclusively in Academic Medical Centers alongside medical colleagues. When working with patients I provide an affirming space to say things perhaps never spoken before. My therapeutic approach is evidence-based, mindful, creative, and when needed, kindly challenging. I value you, what you have to say, and our time together.  In my free time I value time spent in nature, in movement, in artistic creation, and time with my loved ones.

Cassie Sieg, PsyD

I am a licensed psychologist who has worked in medical settings over ten years, including in the ED, ICU, inpatient psychiatry, and outpatient clinics. I also spent five years as an active duty officer in the Navy where I focused on helping service members and medical professionals build resilience and improve their performance when under stress.
My approach balances self-awareness and practical skill building. I believe it can be empowering to understand why we respond the way we do–and necessary to learn new skills for changing those responses. I specialize in treating grief, trauma, work stress, relationship conflict, addiction, and depression. I am also passionate about working with clients to adapt therapy to their culture and life experiences.
I love living in the Pacific Northwest where I split my time between hiking in the woods, training rescue animals, and being mediocre at video games.

Tanya Vishnevsky, PhD

I received my doctorate degree in Clinical Health Psychology from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and my postdoctoral training at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center/Harvard Medical School within the Transplant Institute. Throughout my career, I have worked with a variety of health professionals – both as colleagues and as clients. I find it immensely rewarding to work with clinicians as a guide towards wellness.

I work with health professionals experiencing a diverse range of struggles – anxiety, depression, OCD, PTSD, phobias, grief, relationship difficulty, and many more. My area of specialization is behavioral medicine – helping people cope with the psychological effects of medical conditions such as chronic pain, insomnia, and obesity/overweight.

I love spending time with my family and staying active. And recently I started exploring a new form of artistic expression – quilting!

Tina Runyan, PhD, ABPP

I have been a clinical health psychologist for over 20 years and have spent my entire career working in medical settings. I began caring exclusively for health professionals, primarily physicians, in 2017. My other passion is practicing and teaching mindfulness and I am a Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) teacher at the University of Massachusetts Memorial Healthcare Center for Mindfulness.

If I can be outdoors, I will be – walking, hiking, cycling, kayaking, or lying in the grass reading. I am a proud mother of two amazing kids who bring me joy beyond measure.
