Welcome to the
Psychologists of Seattle
In seeking a pyschologist in the Seattle area to address a mental health concern finding a provider who appears to understand you, can provide support, and can serve as a guide on the road to recovery is of paramount importance. Still, that pyschologist's skills and training will vary by profession and these differences are important and worth understanding.
A psychologist is trained as a scientist in the realm of human behavior. A psychologist is skilled in experimental methodology, has completed their own research and written a dissertation as a requirement for receiving their doctorate. While most psychologists become more focused upon treatment (known as clinical psychology), they keep abreast of new findings in the provision of mental health services. Most importantly, a psychologist can justify the treatment provided in both conceptual and research oriented terms.
