Dr. Michael Foust, licensed as Clinical Psychologist & Marriage and Family Therapist. Practice location is Santa Ana near Tustin.
My approach to providing psychological services is as a consultant helping adults in all problems of living. Most of our life difficulties arise out of conflicts in our work life or personal relationships. I would describe myself as a generalist trained and experienced in assisting people dealing with: Stress, trauma recovery, dissociative conditions, anger management, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, panic disorder and relationship problems which are just some of the symptoms people experience in coping with life. In addition to resolving these painful symptoms some people use therapy as a means for personal development and growth.
My perspective is that perception is reality, and our task in therapy is to obtain the most accurate perceptions we can. Emotional conflicts arise out of how we view ourselves and our relationship to the world, so the solutions we need are found from the same source.
I am trained and certified in providing group therapy in addition to individual & relationship therapy. It is rare for me to encounter a dissatisfied client. I have additional training in sensorimotor psychotherapy, dialectical behavioral therapy and borderline personality therapy.
Most of my services may be covered by insurance plans. Should you desire to ask specific questions or speak directly with me I would be glad to arrange a free phone consultation. I look forward to speaking with you.
