Joey Tadie

Licensed Clinical Psychologist
Clinical Manager, The Catalyst Center

Energetic, Empowering, Compassionate

Even as my training is rooted in psychodynamic theory, my therapeutic approach is based heavily on a relational style of healing. I strongly believe that healing best occurs in the context of relational connection, and I highly value my collaborative connection with my clients. I strive to promote a safe, open, and approachable environment in my practice and am deeply committed to ethically treating my clients respectfully and responsibly. I have advanced training in several modalities, such as EMDR and psychedelic assisted psychotherapy, and have found these to be game-changing for the communities I treat. I work hard to help you go deeper in your healing work and bring an authentic sense of compassion into the therapy space. I hope my clients will experience a sincere level of empathy that helps empower them toward healthier views of themselves, others, and the world.

Recent Posts by Joey

I have been a Clinical Psychologist for over ten years. I have worked diligently to further my training throughout my career to offer the most effective, evidence-based treatments. Although I am a strong advocate of treatment modalities such as EMDR, I have been amazed at the healing opportunities offered through psychedelic assisted psychotherapy. I have never before seen a style of treatment that has radically progressed my ability to help facilitate healing in my clients. It has felt like I have been offered a sacred opportunity to deeply and meaningfully share healing at a level I never thought possible. I have yearned for tools and resources to help relieve clients’ suffering and have been staggered by the profound growth that has come when clients have participated in psychedelic work. I firmly believe that psychedelic assisted psychotherapy in any form should be done responsibly, ethically, and with full commitment to client safety and wellness. It is truly a journey to pursue healing. I think of myself as a caring, compassionate guide who can help prepare clients for the experience, accompany them along the way, and help them internalize the healing insights that come from their work.

In addition to my clinical training, I also have a master’s in theology, which has helped me work with clients of many faith and spiritual backgrounds. I believe there are incredible opportunities in psychedelic work for spiritual healing, recovery from religious trauma, and facilitating a deeper spiritual connection. I believe that being willing to explore one’s spiritual identity can be very rewarding while helping promote a sense of existential clarity. Even as we see psychedelic assisted psychotherapy as a very impactful model of healing for psychological challenges, there are also amazing opportunities to pursue spiritual wellness. I am so energized by the ways that change can be manifested through psychedelic work and am hopeful I can spend the rest of my career bringing this amazing gift of healing to as many people as possible.

Hear What People are Saying about Dr. Joey Tadie

I love how Dr. Tadie takes the time to really get to know an assessment client as a complex person and explains all the assessment findings in clear, easy to understand language. Instead of throwing a bunch of confusing psych words at you and handing you a huge jargon-filled report, Joey translates all of that stuff into everyday language. He writes in language that makes sense and crafts personalized recommendations just for you.
