Welcome to PsychFit Inc.
PsychFit, Inc. is a program that combines psychotherapy and fitness instruction with the purpose of helping individuals retrain their brains and bodies in healthy, positive, and constructive ways.
PsychFit originated as an idea that has been circulating in the mind of its founder, Jane Baxter, Ph.D., CPT, for over ten years. In her own words, Dr. Baxter explains:
“My thinking around creating PsychFit originated back in the early ’90s when I was getting my Masters in Social Work. I was learning a lot about self-destructive behaviors and the depression and anxiety that usually results. The standard treatment practice was and continues to be a combination of psychotherapy, and, if needed, medication. Exercise has always been thrown in there as important, but never officially stressed as a necessary component of symptom alleviation. Eating habits really weren’t mentioned at all as a way of helping with mood problems.
After finishing my degree, I decided to become a certified personal trainer, with the idea of offering individualized treatment planning that combines psychotherapy and fitness instruction. I’ve often wondered why we can’t train our brains in similar ways that we can train and strengthen our bodies. Well, the good news is that WE CAN! Several years, another degree and lots of training and research later, I have formed the program PsychFit.”
The psychotherapy component involves a process called Challenge and Correct, and the fitness portion is called Deliberate Motion, both explained in the next section.

Insider Pages Reviews for PsychFit, Inc.
First Truly qualified therapist who has helped me with my eating disorder.
She is outstanding at understanding the effect that physical health has on mental health and vice versa and tackling both simultaneously and it has really boosted my self-esteem and helped me build great self-confidence. She has a PhD in clinical social work and is obviously very knowledgeable (much more so than MSWs I had tried). Finally she is very approachable, humble and supportive which I truly appreciated.
