What We Do
 
PsychologyClinical psychologists help you learn to cope more effectively with life issues and mental health problems by using a variety of techniques based on the best available research and your unique values, characteristics, goals and circumstances.
 
We help a wide variety of people and can treat many kinds of problems. Some people may talk to a psychologist because they have felt depressed, angry or anxious for a long time. Or, they may want help for a chronic condition that is interfering with their lives or physical health.

Others may have short-term problems they want help navigating, such as feeling overwhelmed by a new job or grieving the death of a family member. 

We can help you learn to cope with stressful situations, overcome addictions, manage chronic illnesses and break past the barriers that keep you from reaching your goals.
 
Psychologists are also trained to administer and interpret a number of tests and assessments that can help diagnose a condition or tell more about the way a person thinks, feels, and behaves. These tests may evaluate intellectual skills, cognitive strengths and weaknesses, vocational aptitude and preference, personality characteristics, and neuropsychological functioning.
