B.A. in Psychology — Miami University
Ms. Fisher is especially skilled when working with families and couples facing medical challenges and/or developmental disabilities. Therapy with her begins with a warm and empathic connection, and from this base she tailors treatment to the needs of each client or family, blending mindfulness, behavioral, cognitive and psychodynamic therapies as necessary. It is goal-oriented but flexible to allow room for added growth. She believes that a strong relationship between therapist and client is key; she pays special attention to repairing past relational injuries and creating healthy attachment relationships in the present. She is mindful of cultural issues such as race, sexual orientation, gender, religion and ethnicity.
Ms. Fisher is part of the Epstein Center for Psychotherapy Change, where she is involved in the implementation of empirical tools and feedback systems designed to improve the efficacy and efficiency of therapy. She provides clinical and technical support, conducts training and is involved in the development of training materials. She also provides individual supervision to therapists-in-training in the Master of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy program.
