Psychologist

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

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.

Psychologist

Steven Harris, PhD

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Placentia

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.

Psychologist

OC Anxiety Center, Ph.D.

Licensed Therapist

Within driving distance of Placentia

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)
