Anthony Fiore, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

I am a Ph.D. psychologist. My approach to helping people is to use short-term evidenced-based therapeutic techniques for your particular disorder, problem, or issue. I believe in first assessing the problem and then developing an individualized treatment plan to help you resolve it. I use skill-building approaches that are practical and useful and which require active patient participation both in sessions and between sessions.

I am a relational collaborative psychologist who ultilizes my education, experience, both in life and academics to connect, understanding and develop a plan of treatment for my clients.

Psychologist

Carl H. Shubs, Ph.D.

Psychologist

Within driving distance of Paramount

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.

Psychologist

OC Anxiety Center, Ph.D.

Licensed Therapist

Within driving distance of Paramount

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)

Psychologist

Alaleh Selkirk, Ph.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Paramount

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.

I have also been in private practice for almost 20 years and have treated people with severe depression, anxiety, panic attacks, drug and alcohol addiction, and, as well, people without major symptoms who are desiring an improvement in their quality of life, social and dating skills. I also work closely with psychiatrists and have experience and knowledge regarding the prescription of psychotropic medications, their side effects and efficacy.

Psychologist

Steven Harris, PhD

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Paramount

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.
