Aimee Smrz, PhD provides both individual and group therapy to adults with a wide variety of problems, including depression, anxiety, chronic pain, relationship issues, and the impact of childhood trauma.  People looking to break free of old patterns and move forward with their lives can benefit from working with Aimee.

Using an integrative approach tailored to the individual needs and skills of her patients, Aimee uses a wide variety of techniques based on a broad set of modalities such as ACT, CBT, DBT, psychodynamic theory, and TARGET to help patients reach their goals.  Teaching mindfulness and relaxation techniques is a core part of her work, as is educating patients about the brain basis of their symptoms.

Dr. Smrz received her doctoral training in Clinical Psychology at Adelphi University, followed by a pre-doctoral internship at Harvard Medical School/Massachusetts Mental Health Center and a post-doctoral fellowship at Harvard Medical School/Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates.  Prior to her doctoral training, Dr. Smrz worked at both Bay Cove Human Services and The Cambridge Hospital (now CHA).   Prior to joining PCA, Dr. Smrz practiced at Atrius Health.  Dr. Smrz provides evaluation and treatment to adults in the Lynnfield office.
