Clinical Psychologists are highly trained professionals with a background in theory, as well as mental health diagnosis and treatment.

Carl H. Shubs, Ph.D.
Psychologist

Carl H. Shubs, Ph.D.

Psychologist

In 90212 - Nearby to Gardena.

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.
