Effective therapy takes place when the client and therapist interact comfortably in a positive atmosphere of mutual respect. Dr. Lollar believes that the client-therapist relationship is one of the most important aspects of therapy. Therapy is a relationship-based treatment. Successful outcomes depend on the client’s being as comfortable as possible. Dr. Lollar works with adults and older adolescents.
Sessions tend to work this way: the client talks about their current situation and their concerns. Dr. Lollar listens actively, asks questions, and may suggest different ways of framing or interpreting experiences. Her approach is empirically based, incorporating systems theory (the environmental and relational impacts on behavior), cognitive behavioral techniques (how thinking affects behavior and vice versa) and insight-oriented methods (understanding what motivates behavior).
Sessions are completely confidential and individually tailored to the client’s needs, wants and goals. The psychologist and the client work together toward achieving these goals. Solution focused whether it is a short-term or a more in-depth psychotherapeutic experience.

How Do We Begin?
We start with a phone conversation to discuss your reasons for seeking therapy, followed by an appointment to meet in person for about an hour to explore your needs and goals in more detail. If we decide to proceed with the therapeutic process, we’ll use the next few sessions to set goals and to determine whether short-term or long-term therapy will be most beneficial.
