Spencer has worked as a psychotherapist since 2017 after graduating with an MSW from the University of Pittsburgh. He specializes in emotion-focused therapy and has assisted clients who struggled with depression, anxiety, trauma and/ or overwhelming stress to regain personal wellness. He is a life-long learner seeking opportunities to enrich his knowledge and understanding of therapeutic approaches involving interventions based in attachment science, mindfulness and positive psychotherapy. He believes curiosity and growth invite future possibilities. Spencer is dedicated to creating environments of security that encourage clients to feel empowered to express themselves without judgment. He maintains a personal philosophy that wellness can be regained with trust, peace, and acceptance.
Spencer is also the creator and clinical lead of the Center for Integration of Sports, Movement, and Mental Agility (CISMMA). Spencer works with athletes and coaches using a humanistic approach to unlock potential and fortify mental well-being. This is done by working with the individual as a whole person, not simply the “athlete”. Spencer values the emergence of a secure self within movement and sport, and it is his intention to help others unlock it for themselves.
He is also a site supervisor at CBI, where he is responsible for clinical education of graduate-level interns.
“It is only natural that we and our children find many things hard to talk about. But anything human is mentionable, and anything mentionable can be manageable. The mentioning can be difficult, and the managing too, but both can be done if we’re surrounded by love and trust.”
