Licensed Clinical Psychologist

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.

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.

Psychologist

Carl H. Shubs, Ph.D.

Psychologist

In 90212 - Nearby to Palmdale.

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 90210 - Nearby to Palmdale.

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.
