Fred Peipman, PhD , Licensed Psychologist
Drawing from my extensive work with adults, teenagers, young adults, and families, I offer the information, direction, and guidance you need to help adolescents develop into independent, healthy, and highly functioning adults.
I specialize in treating mood disorders such as depression and anxiety, self-harm, ADHD, family issues, and internet/technology addiction. I am known for my warmth, compassion, blunt honesty, irreverence, and wonderful sense of humor. With an emphasis on ACT (Acceptance and Comittment Therapy), my treatment approach combines dialectic and cognitive-behavioral therapies, motivational interviewing, mindfulness-based therapy, and family therapy.
I love being outdoors and feel at home in the natural world. I teach snowboarding in the winter and love to go camping and traveling whenever I can. When not working, I love snowboarding, traveling, sailing, scuba diving, singing, camping, and cooking.

Mariella Lauriola, PhD , Psychological Assistant
I am an Italian psychologist (psychological assistant in California) living in the Bay Area for the past three years. I am fluent in English, Italian and Spanish.
I am currently completing my clinical post-doctoral hours and training under the supervision of Dr. Fred Peipman. I love working with individuals, couples and families using client centered, relational and trauma informed psychotherapy approaches.
I am also a hypnotherapist and I use hypnosis for increasing well being in my clients, improving self-esteem, depression and anxiety and for helping athletes improving their athletic performance.
While not working, I love dancing, rock climbing, running, biking, hiking and spending quality time with my husband, friends and family while cooking a nice Italian dinner!
Carrie Euler, Clinical and Administrative Manager
I have always believed that one of the most important things I can do in life, is to invest my time in helping people. I grew up watching my mom, now a special education director, help others in the school setting and I chose to follow in her footsteps.
I've been a classroom teacher for the last decade as a certified elementary teacher and special education teacher (K-12). I've worked in different regions ranging from large metropolitan areas to rural mountain towns; including the Chicago suburbs, Tucson, Arizona and in Buena Vista, Colorado. Throughout this time, I've regularly worked with an array of students with diverse needs: including students with autism, learning disabilities, behavioral disorders, and general education curriculum. These experiences have led me to a passion for helping others and a commitment to attending to their needs.
I currently reside in Sandpoint, Idaho with my husband who works in the therapeutic setting, my son, and my two dogs.
In my spare time, I enjoy walking with my family, going to the gym, and refinishing furniture.
