About Applied Psychology Services

The goal of APS is to provide easy and affordable services to children and adults having developmental and emotional issues, using the principles of Cognitive, Educational, Neuro-biological and Clinical Psychology.

We use an ecclectian cognitive-behavioral approach and utilize the theoretical principles from different schools of psychology. We believe any behavior or psychological stress may be a combination of our belief system, our values, unconscious experience, learned behavior, neuro-cognitive functioning of the brain and or bio-chemical reasons. Each individual is different and must be analyzed individually to find the cause/s behind and to develop and implement a treatment plan.

We provide counseling and psychotherapy for emotional issues as well as cognitive brain training for more cognitive issues such as ADHD, LD etc.  We also work with industries and organizations; and provide workshops on issues such as anger management, self-esteem, assertive training, stress management etc.

We try our best to accommodate your needs !
