HIGH-QUALITY PSYCHOTHERAPY

Ok. We'll admit it: Therapy is kind of a weird deal​ ...at first.

You sit in a room with someone you don't know. You talk about things that you would (presumably) not talk about with any other person in the world. You don't know what the heck the therapist is thinking. Right?

 

No wonder people won't go!

 

On the other hand, therapy can be a life-changing experience.

 

True therapy is more about asking questions than forcing answers.

True therapy is not about advice, or telling people what they should do.

We provide insight-oriented dynamic psychotherapy that will allow you an opportunity to discover... you.

Most of us practice from either a dynamic, existential, or humanistic basis. However, we are also trained in popular "evidence-based" methods such as Cognitive-Behavioral (CBT), Dialectical Behavior (DBT), Cognitive Processing (CPT), and Exposure Response-Prevention (for OCD & Anxiety), etc.  However, we rarely rely on these manualized treatments, instead, focusing on the dynamics of the doctor/patient relationship. It is the relationship between a patient and their therapist that often fosters growth and healing.

ACTIVE CLINICAL RESEARCH

Psychology is but one of many fields of science. Our field is particularly interested in human behavior as it relates to the brain and mind. However, our field also overlaps with many other fields: neuroscience, education, sociology, psychiatry, social work, counseling, philosophy, to name a few.

At Psychology Professionals, our docs participate in at least one of two categories of research:

 

(1) Private Research 

Psychologists who conduct their own research, generally do so in a very specific field of psychology. For example, Dr. Harrison's research centers on the comparison of parental impressions of their child's personality. Dr. Cooper's research focuses on prescriptive training and anti-trust legal issues for prescribers. Mr. Chee researches at-risk youth in minority populations. Mrs. Chapman's researchs centers on mental hygiene in public school systems. 

 

(2) Clinical Field Research

We also conduct field research for some of the biggest names in clinical and educational psychology, such as Pearson, PAR, MHS, and Pro-Ed. We help standardize measures such as intelligence, visuospatial processing skills, and executive functioning.
