Dr. Howard Haven, Ph.D.
Clinic Director, Psychologist

"Good therapy involves a delicate balance of several factors. The first and most important, obviously, is an understanding empathetic relationship. The people involved must click, feel comfortable with each other. There also must be respect for what people want and need and the ability to listen carefully until this becomes clear. Finally, there should be a healthy respect for the scientific evidence which shows which approaches are best for particular problems. People seeking help have a right to expect expert suggestion and guidance, not just a sympathetic ear."
