Dr. Dogris and Dr. Thompson are both licensed psychotherapy providers. Dr. Dogris is a licensed psychologist and Dr. Thompson is a licensed psychotherapist.
We weave psychotherapy into our work with many of our clients. We believe the mind and the brain are inextricably linked. And so, in some cases we use both neurotherapy and psychotherapy with our clients.
The physiological manifestation of the condition (seen in the EEG, the quantitative EEG (“qEEG,” also known as a “brain map”), and in the body) is often present in the mind and the emotions, emerging as various complexes, psychopathologies, forms of repression, suppression, and denial. Put another way, the psychological creation of a condition, as seen in a client’s symptomology, behavior, state of mind, and presentation, can be linked to physical findings.
So, in many cases, the emotional and psychological life of a client is an important consideration in the neurotherapy process. We typically see our patients for psychotherapy on a weekly basis or as needed.
Dr. Dogris specializes in trauma therapy, is trained in EMDR, cognitive behavioral therapy, family systems therapy, and psychodynamic therapy. For 30+ years he has worked with a diverse population of children, adolescents, adults, and seniors.
