Dana Webber, PsyD
If you are struggling with cognitive deficits, ADHD, anxiety, depression, grief, somatic symptom disorders, adjustment to illness, or chronic pain, Dr. Webber is committed to supporting you and helping you achieve your mental health goals. She is in-network with most BCBS plans, so book an appointment today to begin your journey to improved mental health and well-being.
Dr. Webber has a strong foundation in psychotherapy with adults using a combination of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), two evidence-based therapeutic orientations. She will emphasize building a positive and supportive therapy experience for you and values collaboration with you to understand your unique psychological needs. She also utilizes psychological testing when it may be helpful to guide the treatment plan and build self-understanding. Her overall care philosophy is holistic to treat various aspects of you: emotional, social, cognitive and physical, not solely focusing on the disease or disorder.
Additionally, Dr. Webber provides therapy for obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). She uses an evidence-based treatment, Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP). ERP is a type of CBT that involves exposure to that which causes you anxiety (thoughts, images, objects, and situations) and then helping you to reduce the compulsive behaviors that you have used to control that anxiety. This therapy is done gradually and with compassion, so you need not worry that this therapy will be overly distressing.
Dr. Webber offers neuropsychological testing and assessment for adults. She provides adult ADHD testing as well as neurocognitive testing, which is sometimes referred to as neuropsychological or neuropsychiatric testing. She uses only evidence-based tests and evaluation methods in her neuropsychological assessments. She provides mental health services through a combination of virtual sessions and in-person visits at our office in Cary, NC.
