Smith, Ph.D. & Associates, P.C. since 2012 in some capacity (e.g., supervising/mentoring, conducting psychological assessments, working with children and families). Dr. Weller was trained primarily in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapeutic techniques but over the years has learned to use more eclectic approaches.
