Receiving help from a Doctor can make the difference in the care and outcome of treatment. As a Psychologist, education and experience are at the highest level and greater than that found with a MFT or Social Worker. This added expertise can make the difference in achieving a more accurate diagnosis of your problem, a more specific treatment plan, and an enhanced evaluation of your condition, therapy, and prognosis. In other words, if you want the best possible care, then a psychologist is the counselor to contact for enhanced therapy.

OC Anxiety Center, Ph.D.

Licensed Therapist

In 92660 - Nearby to Brea.

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)

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

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.
