Treatment Approach

Necoe Otto-Parkinson, PH.D. – Psychologist

As a licensed clinical psychologist, I have extensive training in being able to accurately and effectively help individuals with the problems they are facing. The private practice office of Dr. Necoe Otto-Parkinson serves clients in and around Tucson, Arizona, as well as online throughout Arizona. Therapy is a balance of creating a safe and supportive environment for the person and providing the necessary resources and tools so the individual can better understand him / herself and be guided to a path of improvement.  Therapy is a process that can move you toward being the healthiest version of yourself and living the life you desire. I look forward to working with you to help you address your challenges and realize your goals.

Treatment Approach

An individualized treatment plan is developed collaboratively with the client utilizing a developmental, biopsychosocial perspective with a multicultural awareness. Therapy is eclectic where the therapist draws upon cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), interpersonal, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and motivational interviewing approaches. It is a combination of providing a safe, supportive therapeutic environment for the client and providing the necessary tools and resources. It is more than symptom reduction or putting a band-aid on the problem. The goal is to address underlying issues to increase understanding, promote healing and create and sustain growth so you can lead a life that is more enriching and meaningful.

There is a growing body of research that supports the practice of self-compassion and mindfulness in psychotherapy. Neuroscience research reveals individuals that practice these techniques are happier, more resilient, and better equipped to heal painful memories from the past. It is my mission to help my clients move past what’s blocking them from reaching their full potential. I feel truly honored to be entrusted to help clients during a critical time in their lives to be able to help them on their inner journey get onto a path of greater health and happiness.
