Steven Harris, PhD

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

In 92660 - Nearby to Lakewood.

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.

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.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

In 90048 - Nearby to Lakewood.

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

In 92648 - Nearby to Lakewood.

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)

Janet Niederman, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

In 90025 - Nearby to Lakewood.

Why choose a psychologist? And why choose me? The breadth and depth of my training comes through in everything I do. Every year, increasingly valuable therapeutic techniques and methods are being developed in this field. Nevertheless, I'm aware that having the core essentials developed over the five years of training it takes to become a psychologist still provides the most complete basis for helping others to grow and change. With the fundamentals that are gained in human development (child development in particular), neuroscience, and client-centered therapeutic principles, the education I've obtained provides a solid foundation upon which we can do our work together. Since completing my degree, I've worked with clients for 35 years. I offer you both my competence and my compassion.

Psychologist

Amy Montague, Ph.D.

Psychologist

In 92660 - Nearby to Lakewood.

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 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.
