Dr. Bennett has been working in the mental health field since 1988. She received her doctoral degree in clinical psychology from St. Louis University in 1996. She believes in a respectful approach to therapy based on the individual's innate ability to grow and heal. She views therapy as a highly collaborative process in which the therapist and client strive together to fully understand the client's unique perspective and life difficulties. She and the client then use this understanding to problem-solve and help the client to create a richer and more fulfilling life. Dr. Bennett works with people with a wide variety of concerns, but has particular interests in working with women's issues, couples/marital issues, abuse survivors, and individuals diagnosed with Dissociative Identity Disorder.
