Professional Statement

Dr. Bennett is a Licensed Psychologist who takes an integrated approach to psychotherapy, incorporating aspects of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Hypnotherapy, Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), and a variety of other treatment modalities. He does not adhere to a standardized approach to therapy and feels that clients benefit most from a unique, individually tailored treatment plan. He has extensive experience working with service members and their families and has a thorough understanding of military culture as he is a veteran of the U.S. Army and Army National Guard who completed two combat deployments. Dr. Bennett has worked with individual clients ranging in age from pre-teen to late adulthood and has gained experience working with those exhibiting symptoms of depression, anxiety, adjustment issues, and PTSD. He has served on integrative teams for both parents and children in Child Protective Services (CPS) cases as well as teams collaborating care for elderly clients residing in assisted living and skilled nursing facilities. Additionally, he has extensive experience working with victims of sexual assault and individuals who identify as part of the LGBTQ+ community. In couples therapy, he embraces the Gottman method, but also incorporates an attachment-based, emotionally focused approach, allowing couples to conceptualize the negative, rigid interaction patterns and negative affect that lead to distress in relationships. He is also experienced in group therapy, including LGBTQ+ support, Domestic Violence Offender Rehabilitation, and Anger Management. Dr. Bennett earned a Doctor of Psychology (Psy.D.) degree from California Southern University and successfully defended a dissertation which examined the relationship between toxic masculinity and the perpetration of sexual violence.
