Despite the progress we’ve made over the past two decades to help people better understand psychotherapy — what it is, how it works, and why it’s effective for some but not for others — there are still a lot of misconceptions about therapy. Pharmaceutical companies have deep advertising budgets to ensure you (and your doctor) get a lot of information and marketing about their drugs. There is no equivalent in the psychotherapy world.

That’s why I’m pleased to introduce Therapy That Works with Marla W. Deibler, Psy.D. This blog will be devoted to discussing common therapy issues, and offer discussions about evidence-based treatment. Evidence-based treatment (EBT) refers to treatments that have a solid backing in research.

Marla W. Deibler, Psy.D., is a clinical psychologist and nationally-recognized expert in anxiety disorders and the obsessive-compulsive spectrum, including trichotillomania and other body-focused repetitive behaviors, obsessive-compulsive disorder, hoarding, and tic disorders. She is the Founder and Executive Director of The Center for Emotional Health of Greater Philadelphia in New Jersey. You can learn more about her here.

Please give Dr. Deibler a warm Psych Central welcome!
