What is Psychology?
Our psychologists study how our patients behave, feel, and think. They explain reasoning so patients understand, improve, and change their behaviors for the better. Unlike neuropsychologists, psychology professionals evaluate and examine behavior in relation to mental processes. Clinical psychologists and counseling psychologists provide patients with mental health solutions while social or organizational psychology surrounds research and consultation for improvement of emotional and psychological challenges. The term clinical psychology is typically associate with talk or psychotherapy.
Most primary clinician visits are driven by psychological factors including anxiety, depression, stress, somatization, panic attacks, or other adjustment disorders. Understanding the complexities of human beings is imperative to care options. Psychologists spend an average of seven years in school once they receive their undergraduate degree. They receive one of the highest levels of education in specialized medicine and earn either a EdD, PsyD, or PhD is their respective fields.
What do our Clinical Psychologists do?
The main objective for our psychological programs is to ensure and improve the health and well-being of all of our patients, their families, and extended social circle. If we’re able to make an impact in our niche, we hold the key to improving society as a whole. Our licensed psychologists conduct group therapy (children, teens, adults) for concerns including but not limited to anxiety, depression, and substance abuse. They also work hand in hand with other professionals to enhance communication, participant satisfaction (occupational), performance, and overall productivity.

When it comes to reducing anxiety, improving outcomes, or even developing concentration, psychologists are valuable to musicians, actors, and professional athletes. Sometimes, court proceedings utilize psychological services when they need to fill a consulting role for expert testimony.

Short Term Psychology
Aside from lifestyles, psychologists can also help with a number of short-term problems like life-changing events or a family member passing. Helping people cope with these types of situations improve their confidence and reduce their stress levels so they can reach their goals.
When determining how to help patients cope, our clinical psychologists are trained to administer multiple assessments and tests that uncover intellect, cognitive functions, personality and interpersonal characteristics, vocational aptitude, or neuropsychological functioning. By observing and interpreting behaviors, responses, and other non-verbals, our psychologists understand how to diagnose and treat our patients to fit their lifestyle and personality.
