Dr. Bauman will meet with you, or call you, at the pre-designated time. The session will last 50 minutes. The first couple of sessions will be to gather background information and assess your needs. If you and Dr. Bauman deem this a good fit, therapy will proceed from there. Every process is different and unique. Feel free to ask questions as you go along and Dr. Bauman will make every effort to answer them informatively.
Yes. Confidentiality is one of the most important elements in the therapeutic relationship. If you would like Dr. Bauman to speak with anyone (family, friends, physicians, etc.) you will be required to fill out a release form.
Yes. A wide range of studies have been conducted on this very question. It has been found that regardless of technique, the most important variable in the effectiveness of therapy is the therapeutic relationship. Many clients report that progress is often subtle while it is happening, but that looking back there are welcome changes in their presenting concerns and overall well being.
I believe that every one of us has the basis to be happy, to access the warm and compassionate states of mind that bring happiness.
Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.

The right way to wholeness is full of detours and supposed wrong turns.
Serendipity and the Search for True Self reveals the ways in which we fruitlessly search for self in the outside world, and how we eventually come to the realization that there’s nowhere left to search but within.
Believing that all paths lead to the same place, Dr. Bauman weaves seemingly distant topics like dreams, forgiveness, body-awareness, and critical inner voices into tools for connecting to your core. In her nonjudgmental way, Dr. Bauman teaches us to respect and value all parts of ourselves as she believes that “Every single energy inside of us is necessary, useful, and capable of complementing one another. The key is knowing when, where, and how to integrate our different parts so that we feel whole.”
Serendipity and the Search for True Self takes you on a whimsical, yet practical journey to a land where spirituality is infused into even the most mundane of daily tasks. Full of inspirational anecdotes and down-to-earth humor, this work is a warm-hearted travel companion for anyone on the winding road of self discovery.Buy Online
Being a writer is one of the strangest perplexities on Earth. Less like a profession, and more like a way of being, this calling causes otherwise sane people to leave wonderfully cushy chairs at high-paying jobs to sit alone in rooms with only harsh white screens as company, staring mercilessly back at them. That the white screen mirrors an inverse Rorschach, telling you everything that is wrong with what you dare to put upon it becomes a story in itself. But that story is rarely the one told.
In this daringly personal collection, Dr. Hayley Bauman, a clinical psychologist, explores the healing power of writing. Through sharing bits and pieces of her own past, Dr. Bauman let’s us accompany her into raw territory. Each essay begins on the mundane plane, showcasing various tenants in Hayley’s mind, like her incredibly apt and relentless inner critic, who gives way only when the creative force takes over.
This work is both an experiential and demonstrative look at how writing invites spiritual solutions to everyday problems. Whether you are an aspiring writer, or a person looking to heal old wounds, this book is a warm, funny, and truthful companion for the winding journey ahead.Buy Online
