Seeking Licensed Psychologist/Postdoctoral Psychologist
BASE is a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy specialty practice that has been founded as a partnership between Dr. Kristin Daley and Dr. Andrea Umbach. We are located in Charlotte, NC, between the Southpark and Sedgefield neighborhoods. The office is in a building that has recently been remodeled to be LEED certified green energy and is conveniently located near several restaurants and the Sugar Creek Greenway.
Both Dr. Daley and Dr. Umbach have been practicing in Charlotte for many years and have specialist training. Dr. Daley is certified in Behavioral Sleep Medicine, and serves on the Practice Committee for the Society for Behavioral Sleep Medicine. She is an active speaker for the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. In addition to her work in sleep, she has trained in both DBT and ACT. Dr. Umbach founded the Charlotte Anxiety Consortium and is author of “Conquering Your Fears & Phobias for Teens.” She is an active member of the Anxiety and Depression Association of America.
Our mission is to move the field of psychology forward through our regular integration of evidence-based interventions, assessment of client progress, participation in training psychological professionals, and active engagement in research. Our team is made up of exceptionally trained providers who utilize evidence-based interventions to help clients thrive. BASE intends to set the standard for the modern practice of psychology.
Our practice is built on four essential principles:
Balance: Balance is sustained by opportunities for both inhibition of impulsive behaviors and activation of growth behaviors.
Awareness: Awareness is essential for positive emotional growth, as most people have desire to change and develop, but lack the insight required for making effective choices.
Strength: Discovering and engaging with personal strengths is key to psychological growth and well-being. BASE clinicians assist their clients in identifying and cultivating desired strengths and utilizing acceptance strategies to engage with forward momentum.
Evolution: Evolution will occur both on a clinical level for individual clients and through BASE supporting the evolution of clinical practice of psychology.
Clientele: We are a private pay practice and do not participate with insurance. We offer sliding scale services to people who have financial need. Our focus is on the treatment of adults and adolescents.
