Mission and Vision
Dr. Rudd aimed to create a Center that honors and cultivates individual relationships with clients by providing compassionate care paired with effective treatment modalities. She believes clinicians who remain at the forefront of research, leadership and practice are the most adept at offering effective care to clients. The intersection between a personal connection and effective treatment is what creates profound and lasting change.
As a professor of Counselor Education, Dr. Rudd is at the forefront of research and practice in the counseling field. Dr. Rudd is trained in, and teaches, evidence-based therapeutic methods such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and other integrative approaches that have shown effective and timely results. Many clients see a reduction in symptoms for the original problem in as little as 6-8 sessions. Dr. Rudd strives to provide empathic, comprehensive and compassionate care to her clients.
At your first session Dr. Rudd will conduct an initial assessment aimed at understanding the problem(s) or symptoms that brought you in for counseling, a brief history of your life and what goals you have for counseling. Then the two of you will identify the frequency, duration and type of counseling necessary to accomplish these goals.
