OC Anxiety Center, Ph.D.

Licensed Therapist

In 92660 - Nearby to Lakewood.

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)

As a psychologist the cornerstone of my work with clients involves assessment and evaluation. I begin every client interaction with a thorough assessment of the individual. I formulate my understanding of the client, including their presenting problem, and share this with the client. I invite and encourage active collaboration from the client to devise treatment goals that we can work to achieve in therapy. Therapy to me entails an active and engaged process exploration to gain insights that were otherwise inaccessible to the client.

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)

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 92831 - Nearby to Lakewood.

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.

Carl H. Shubs, Ph.D.

Psychologist

In 90212 - Nearby to Lakewood.

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.
