Ms. Vanden Bos practices an interactive, empathetic approach to psychotherapy that explores some of the hidden causes of distress and works collaboratively with her clients to devise creative responses to to seemingly intractable personal problems. Her overarching goal is to help people feel not just less stuck but also more clear, hopeful and engaged in their lives. She works with a diverse patient demographic, including middle-aged men, young women, and LGBTQ individuals and couples. She specializes in relationship issues.
Because she has personally benefited from psychotherapy, Ms. Vanden Bos appreciates—perhaps more than most—the delicate and nuanced relationship that exists between individuals and their therapists.
