Areas of Expertise
I provide assessment services to clarify a diagnosis, help clients apply for academic and/or occupational accommodations, and to determine appropriate treatment planning.
I use a CBT treatment model to help clients change thoughts that are getting in the way of optimal functioning. CBT is an acronym for Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, which helps people deal with the overly negative mistakes in thinking in a therapeutic environment. Overly negative thoughts serve to maintain of mental health issues, PTSD, depression, anxiety, or any number of issues. CBT is often used concurrently with psychiatric medications. Most “symptoms” people suffer from are evidence of coping strategies that are no longer helpful. I help clients move toward healthier behaviors and more balanced thoughts. Therapy is focused, collaborative, and time-limited. My goal is to help clients develop a helpful, balanced and logical inner voice.
Why Choose A Licensed Clinical Psychologist?
People seek treatment from a professional for a variety of reasons. Sometimes, it’s due to thoughts or circumstances that leave a negative impact on their lives. Whether that impact is caused by past physical or emotional trauma, ongoing problems within a marriage, troubles with family members, issues with performance at work or school – or even if the source of the negativity is yet unknown – a licensed clinical psychologist can help people make positive changes and live a more balanced life.
A large part of moving toward a more healthy, positive you depends on determining the sources of the negative aspects of your life; diagnosis by a licensed clinical psychologist is the first step in that process.
Using validated, research-backed methods, a licensed clinical psychologist can perform neuropsychological and psychological assessments to accurately pinpoint and diagnose your needs. Then, treatment can proceed – treatments that focus on understanding the diagnosis and how to navigate the inner voices that might fuel negativity and one’s mistakes in thinking. By providing logic and balance to your self-assessment, I can help you take the necessary steps towards positive changes in your life.
In addition to psychotherapy, I provide other crucial aspects of care. Some people require the services of a licensed clinical psychologist for psychoeducational and neuropsychological testing and assessment as well as testing to determine if a child may be placed in a gifted classroom. Neuropsychological and psychological testing may be necessary when applying for psychological accommodations for school or work or as required for entrance to gifted or other scholarly programs. Assessment services are also used in medical-legal settings and when applying for disability through one’s disability insurance or through Social Security. Dr. Calbeck has served as an expert witness in many legal cases. As a licensed clinical psychologist, I offer these and other assessment services.
I look forward to working with you to make positive changes in your life. I offer psycho-educational testing, neuropsychological assesment, and psychological and personality assessment, and psychotherapy. My office is located on Arthur Godfrey Road (also known as 41st Street) between Sheridan Avenue and Pine Tree Drive.
