"Ilyssa Swartout, Psy.D. is a person and colleague I respect deeply. I first
came to know Dr. Swartout on her dissertation committee where I experienced
her passion and dedication to helping clients in psychotherapy. I
along with my mentor, James F. T. Bugental, Ph.D., trained Dr. Swartout
in the in-depth existential-humanistic psychotherapy for individuals
She brings to her individual and group practice not only rich experience
but a large compassionate heart which is essential for long-term
healing. You would be greatly fortunate to have Dr. Swartout as
an individual or group psychotherapist."
