"Man's task is to become conscious of the contents that press upward from the unconscious." - Carl Jung
Nadine Ryser holds a master’s in clinical psychology earned from Argosy University in Orange County, CA (the American School of Professional Psychology). Nadine started her graduate career as a PsyD candidate in 2009. After successfully completing her first two years of the program (to include a practicum/training in psychodiagnostic testing), there was an unplanned hiatus in her graduate career. Nadine elected to conclude her studies with a master’s in clinical psychology versus a PsyD. Through the course of her experiences, Nadine has remained skilled and has only become more inspired and dedicated to the integration of her training/schooling with personal life experiences. Nadine specializes working with youth and young adults, trauma, substance abuse/relapse prevention, life-transition difficulties, mood disorders, anxiety and PTSD.
Nadine is described as warm, direct, emphatic and passionate clinician in all her therapeutic work. Her approach is rooted in psychodynamic and humanistic theoretical frameworks. She will utilize ACT, CBT, DBT and motivational interviewing (MI) in her client-centered therapeutic approach. She is committed to helping others overcome obstacles that have prevented them from living life to its full, healthy, and stable potential. Nadine strives to instill hope and is committed in guiding and supporting clients to a life that is more balanced and fulfilled
