Psychological Services

Dr. Fritz is the lead author of the Open-Focus Handbook which contains many of the cognitive interventions still used in psychological therapy today.  More recently, we have supplemented Open-Focus training with cognitive exercises catalogued in Buddha's Brain by Rick Hanson.  Over the years, we have developed expertise in specialized psychotherapist skills such as EMDR, and its powerful off-shoot, Brainspotting.
