"I am learning to understand rather than immediately judge or to be judged." - Bruce Lee
We are living in challenging times. Dr. Skyler believes psychotherapy can be a powerful tool to facilitate personal growth and transformative healing even during the most difficult circumstances. There is no better time than the present to take this important step toward a life fully lived.
Dr. Skyler is a queer-identified therapist who uses a non-judgmental approach to create a safe space where you discuss what is important to you and explore the possibilities in your life. He has a specific sensitivity to working with Veterans and LGBTQPIA2S identified individuals. Over the course of his training, he has also worked extensively with older adults and can provide assistance for individuals struggling with adjustments related to aging. Dr. Skyler provides treatment for those with adjustment concerns, mood or anxiety disorders, anger difficulties, trauma, PTSD, OCD, and substance use disorders at Cabot Psychological Services.
With regard to treatment approaches, Dr. Skyler offers cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), interpersonal therapy, motivational interviewing, cognitive processing therapy, and exposure therapy. Dr. Skyler incorporates aspects of feminist beliefs for those dealing with oppressive systems. He strives to understand a person’s functioning within an ecological framework by developing interventions that are both evidenced-based and strengths-based.
Dr. Skyler completed his doctoral degree at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee and went on to complete his internship at the Milwaukee VA Medical Center. He completed a two-year postdoctoral fellowship at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, MI in 2019 and then practiced as a licensed psychologist offering psychotherapy to individuals living in the greater metropolitan Detroit area. Recently, he relocated to the Twin Cities where he is excited to offer psychotherapy to adults ages 18-118.
