T. J. Raney

The fundamental goal of therapy is healing and personal growth. Therapy recognizes the unique individual strengths and challenges of the person seeking help, and advocates for their ability to make meaningful changes in their lives. Therapy is a collaboration between the client and the therapist, with each bringing essential perspectives to the relationship. The therapist has experience and training, and the patient is the expert on their situation. Therapy seeks to equip individuals with skills and tools to cope with the challenges they face, and to engage them with curiosity and acceptance, rather than judgment, in a safe and supportive environment.

Patient Demographics

I am a clinical psychologist with over 20 years of experience working with patients of all ages in outpatient and hospital settings. I provide individual therapy, family therapy, group therapy and couples therapy with clients who have a wide variety of mental health concerns. I am a recognized expert in the treatment of patients with eating disorders and body image disturbance. I have had an extensive career as a faculty member in academic settings, training and supervising psychiatry residents and therapists in the use of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

  • I have focused my career on treating patients who suffer from eating disorders, depression, anxiety and other mood related issues, especially those that impact body image and self-esteem.
  • I have specialized training and experience required to treat children, adolescents and their families, as well as adults.
  • I provide couples therapy, especially for couples in which one partner is struggling with mental health issues.
  • Mental health providers need support throughout their careers, so I am committed to providing supervision for therapists, as well as therapy for mental health professionals.
