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.

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.
