Dr. Shirley Gruen - Online PsychologistHi!

I'm Dr. Shirley and I'd like to introduce myself to all of you who are interested in and excited about the new world of the internet therapist.

First, I'll give you the formal introduction:

She received her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Texas A&M University and interned at the Veterans Administration Hospital in Houston. Her certifications include: Licensed psychologist (Texas 30635 - Psychologist License Verification), National Register of Health Service Providers in Psychology, Specialty Certification - Health Service Provider [Texas], Certified Chemical Dependency Specialist, and Licensed Specialist in School Psychology (LSSP-Texas). In addition, she is certified by the American College of Forensic Examiners and the Professional Academy of Custody Evaluators to provide consultation and evaluation in court and custody related matters.

Dr. Gruen is a member of the Houston, Texas and American Psychological Associations, the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis, the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy, and the American Group Psychotherapy Association. She is a past president of the Fort Bend Mental Health Association. In her practice. she treats children, adolescents and adults individually and in groups. Her practice also includes diagnostic screening and psychological assessment, pain and habit control, and biofeedback therapy.

Dr. Gruen consults with community schools and law enforcement agencies. She is a frequent guest on radio and TV programs and a speaker for community groups. Dr. Gruen's web site, www.TalkingDoc.com, is a popular stop for web browsers and offers a unique avenue for information on psychological issues and current trends in online psychology and innovative web consultation opportunities.

Now, let me put that information into everyday language. Well, all that information simply means is that I like working with everyone - children, adolescents and adults.

We all have times in our lives when we reach
roadblocks and become confused, frustrated or depressed.
These are times when we need to find a way around the roadblock.
Therapy is a way of getting help in finding
the road around the problem.
Internet therapy, counseling, and e-mail consultation
are exciting ways of finding the new road.

There are many techniques and methods I find useful in helping people navigate through their lives. These include: individual psychotherapy, group psychotherapy, psychological assessments, educational assessments, crisis counseling, and stress management techniques. Each of these methods provides many different options. You can review these options on my web site, www.talkingdoc.com.

When you contact me, your life will probably not be working the way you want. My job is to help you find the options that will resolve those problems.

I'll be waiting to hear from you!

Dr. Shirley :-)
