Steven Harris, PhD

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

In 92660 - Nearby to Cerritos.

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.

Everyone is unique and has unique life experiences and history. I get to know my clients and their unique qualities rather than applying a broad generalized approach of one size fits all. In the past psychologists were taught to not get involved with their patients and keep a safe distance. Now with good boundaries we are encouraged to work with clients and their doctors, work environment, families and friends if needed to better understand the psycho-dynamic factors governing their unique personality. Then I am better able to understand and help my clients with what ever prompted them to seek my help.

As a Clinical Psychologist with over 25 years of experience, the focus of my work is PASSION. My work with individuals and couples is to create a deeper relationship first with ourselves and then within the relationship to have a more fulfilled and passionate life. In my experience, passion comes when our inner life matches our outer life, when we live authentically and in integrity with our values. My work with individuals begins there, identifying our values and what excites us and removing the blocks to living that inner truth more fully in our lives.

Clinical Psychologist

There are many types of counselors who provide psychotherapy. As a clinical psychologist (Psy.D.), I am trained in both the the art of psychotherapy and the science of psychology. I received clinical training in a research lab that was doing clinical trials and as such, I only utilize treatment techniques that have been empirically validated through extensive research. These techniques are effective in providing relatively rapid relief from uncomfortable symptoms and in encouraging lasting behavioral changes which maintain gains and prevent relapse.

Clinical Psychologist

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

Camila Williams, Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

In 90501 - Nearby to Cerritos.

I went to a graduate program focused on clinical research and quickly realized that my heart was in the therapy room and not the research lab. This is why I pursued advanced clinical training. Psychologists are not required to complete a postdoctoral fellowship in order to become licensed. However, I craved advanced training and completed a fellowship at a VA hospital where I specialized in cognitive behavioral therapy. As a psychologist I feel privileged when a client allows me to join them on their journey to a life worth living. By teaching you tools and skills to help change your thoughts and behaviors, my wish is to empower you to become your own therapist and enact change in your life.

Carl H. Shubs, Ph.D.

Psychologist

In 90212 - Nearby to Cerritos.

A psychologist has the most extensive training in psychology of all the mental health professions. Some people with a Ph.D. are licensed as Marriage and Family Therapists (and I have that license as well) or as Social Workers, not psychologists. As a psychologist, I understand the benefits and limitations of research, and I also bring that to my psychotherapy practice. Psychologists work with the full range of psychological and emotional issues, without limitation, unlike MFTs and LCSWs who have a more limited scope of practice. WHAT THIS MEANS FOR YOU: I’m well trained to help you with whatever issues bring you to me.
