After earning her bachelor’s in psychology from the University of Denver, she earned her master’s and doctoral degree from Palo Alto University. After missing the 300 days of sunshine, she returned to Denver and completed her pre-doctoral internship at Denver Health Medical Center and her postdoctoral fellowship at The Collective Integrated Behavioral Health.
Dr. Kantor’s evidence-based toolkit encompasses Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). She’s also adept in using Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) to treat trauma and PTSD.
In her therapy work, Dr. Kantor’s goal is to become obsolete- she strives to teach clients to become their own therapists to foster feelings of competency and autonomy. Dr. Kantor’s approach focuses on cultivating a strong relationship built on safety and trust. She believes that having a solid foundation within the therapeutic relationship allows clients to build confidence to change how they think, feel, and behave. Dr. Kantor personally and professionally values connecting with others, and this shines through in her ability to build rapport quickly and effectively with her clients. Her warm, yet direct style helps clients face difficult experiences while feeling supported throughout the therapeutic journey to help clients build meaningful and valued lives.
Dr. Kantor provides individual therapy for adults. Dr. Kantor also conducts formal psychological and psychoeducational assessments for adults and adolescents (age 14+). These assessments offer clarity in diagnoses, treatment recommendations, and guidance for academic or workplace accommodations.
