Good Therapy LLC

I am honored that you are taking a few moments out of your day to learn about my background and the services that I offer.  I am passionate about my work and I thrive on helping others become their Best Selves. I began my training at Xavier University where I completed my master's and doctorate degrees in clinical psychology. For the past 5 years I have trained and worked in inpatient hospitals and specialize in treating adults with Serious and Persistent Mental Illness (SPMI). My expertise allows me to provide much needed care to individuals transitioning out of the hospital, as well as individuals functioning in the community but in need of some help managing their thoughts, moods, or relationships with themselves or others. 

My orientation toward individual therapy has a strong humanistic flavor. In the words of Irvin Yalom, “it’s the relationship that heals.” I desire to form a warm and supportive relationship, free of judgment, and full of unconditional positive regard. In doing this, I take time to understand clients through their own eyes and together we form an alliance and work towards goals as a team. In addition to humanistic influence, I also incorporate many Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) skills and positive psychology interventions in individual sessions. My approach is holistic and I encourage healthy living in all regards, as our minds and our bodies are intimately connected.

Therapy is about change, but it is also about learning to accept. Accept life for what it is, the past for what it was, and you for who you are. The journey begins with learning the client and their world, fostering a sense of safety and acceptance within the therapeutic relationship, and clarifying what “health” looks like for that specific person. The second phase of therapy is the bulk of the journey towards health, which will likely include some speed bumps and obstacles that in themselves present wonderful growth opportunities. Like picking up a new exercise routine, it may hurt more in the beginning but soon the soreness lessens and what is left behind is new strength and increased flexibility. During that time the relationship continues to deepen and it is possible that goals and the client’s definition of “health” may shift. The final phase is reflection on changes made, maintenance of growth, and continued reinforcement of positive changes with the hope that the client has a strong sense of self, feels empowered, and is capable of effectively tackling life and all that it has to offer.

I welcome individuals from all walks of life and I celebrate diversity. I have experience working with individuals who struggle with mood disorders (depression and bipolar disorder), anxiety disorders (panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, specific phobias, social anxiety, OCD), and dual diagnoses (mental health and substance use diagnoses). I feel a deep sense of connection with all of my clients and have the utmost respect for their journeys. If you or someone you know is interested in receiving more information about my services, please feel free to contact me and I will gladly answer your questions.

Warmly Yours,

Bailey C. Bryant, Psy.D.
