Psychologist

Terry Anderson, M.S., Psy.D, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Fountain Valley, CA

I became a psychologist to broaden my knowledge of the therapeutic process. My doctoral schooling exposed me to theories of personality and psychotherapy not covered in earlier training. This experience afforded me the opportunity to focus on therapies which are characterized by a close working relationship between client and therapist. I came to see that it is the relationship that heals and that by exploring interactions in the therapeutic relationship as well as looking at present day and historical feelings and thoughts, insight and clarity of mind result, enabling lasting change to be achieved. Becoming a Psychologist enhanced my clinical skills and knowledge base immeasurably.

Psychologist

Lyndsay Elliott, PsyD

Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Fountain Valley, CA

Clinical Psychologists are highly trained professionals with a background in theory, as well as mental health diagnosis and treatment. After completing college, most Psychologists spend 7+ years in graduate school and conducting research before they receive their doctoral degree. As part of that training, they are required to complete both a predoctoral and postdoctoral internship in order to practice independently. The combination of intensive education in psychological theory/intervention combined with clinical experience that distinguishes Psychologists from other mental health care professionals. With 14+ years of education and clinical experience, we will work together to understand your experiences, to develop more effective patterns of behavior....(view profile to read more)

Psychologist

Steven Harris, PhD

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Fountain Valley, CA

As a psychologist, I have a unique training in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of problems. However, this training has also instructed me of the importance of not over-diagnosing and that symptoms and diagnoses are only ways of describing behavior. They do not tell me who the person is and what their symptoms might be telling us. Therefore, for me, all of the diagnosis, etc., is in the background. If I give too much importance to diagnosis, I find that it gets in the way of knowing who someone is, why they feel the way that they do, and what we need to try to do together to get things on track. Therefore, I would say I like to try to help uncover "What is right with you" to help you find your way.

Psychologist

OC Anxiety Center, Ph.D.

Licensed Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Fountain Valley, CA

The mind is incredibly malleable. Our environment and reactions to it continually form thoughts and processes for thinking. Sometimes, this happens without our consent or awareness and we end up with thought patterns we cannot find our way out of. We may not even know where they came from. This is why it takes a new environment and new influences e.g. a psychologist. The trick is to reverse the influences and teach the mind new patterns while breaking old ones. This is something OCAC leads the field in. Our primary approach is through cognitive behavioral therapy, CBT. Essentially, the goal is to build new associations and challenge old associations and the underlying assumptions the mind has made. By clueing patients in to how their mind is working...(view profile to read more)

Psychologist

Kristin Martinez, M.S., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Fountain Valley, CA

I work with alleviating trauma through working with individuals, couples, and families that are affected by trauma. I work with them to transform personal stories focused on the pains and effects of the trauma to a narrative focused on newly formed self-identity, and life meaning. Working with children and teens poses a special challenge for therapists and families because trauma can show up in a variety of ways. Children can be angry, scream, cry and yell at parents, peers, and even teachers. Children can talk back, refuse to do chores, and may even regress to earlier developmental stages (baby talking, thumb sucking, etc.). Teens can become more rebellious than normally expected. They can scream, yell, cuss at everyone around them. They appear...(view profile to read more)

A Mission For Michael, M.D.

Medical Doctor

Within Driving Distance of Fountain Valley, CA

Brian F. Licuanan, M.S., Ph.D. I utilize an integrative approach, meaning I draw aspects from several orientations in order to formulate the most effective formula based on each patient’s individual needs. However, two major theories that drive my therapeutic focus are: 1) Psychodynamic and 2) Cognitive-Behavioral. First, I believe people are highly influenced or shaped by certain factors they may have encountered in their lives. I believe that there are critical periods that may make these experiences more salient and lay the groundwork for future challenges. These periods are childhood and adolescence. Second, I also believe that people’s belief systems—how they interpret and understand past experiences—are essential to work with in therapy.
