Dr. Douglas Fehr

(Psychologist)

About Me

I am a licensed psychologist with over twenty years of clinical experience in assisting individuals, couples, and families in achieving their goals. I have a Bachelor’s degree in psychology and Master’s and Doctoral (Ph.D.) degrees in clinical psychology. After ten years in academia where I taught at the graduate level and trained and supervised other mental health professionals, I entered private practice in Los Angeles and Orange County. In working with clients, I strive to build a strong therapeutic relationship based on trust and mutual respect. I work collaboratively with clients, balancing support with mutual responsibility for their developing skill in coping with stressful life issues and personal challenges.

Throughout my years of practice and teaching as I strove to develop the most effective methods of helping persons, I adopted an integrative approach to therapy. By providing a variety of services fit together to match the needs of each client I can offer a comprehensive range of counseling methods in a dynamic, personalized process tailored to each client’s needs. Through complementary modalities and techniques of treatment, I am able to address the full gamut of perceptual, thinking, and behavioral patterns that can hold you back from experiencing a fulfilling and meaningful life.

I also work with persons seeking personal growth and greater self understanding in order to enhance the quality of their lives. Though successful, they have a vision of themselves beyond where they are - in their careers, their personal experiences, and in their general outlook on life. By adding psychological expertise to life coaching methods, I work with my clients in a paradigm of accelerated personal development.

In 2009, I began working online with the goal to provide the same quality of professional services online as I offer in my office setting. I now offer my psychological expertise remotely via the internet enabling my clients to schedule their counseling sessions from the comfort and privacy of their home or office. Online counseling is now a preferred option for many clients. Busy schedules and convenience are typical reasons clients give for choosing to have their counseling sessions over the internet. Other clients mention the privacy and confidentiality offered by online sessions. For those clients who travel extensively, it is the flexibility of being able to schedule their appointments from almost anywhere in the world that is attractive. And if you are tentative about seeing a counselor, you may find that being able to do so online can be a more comfortable way for you to get started.

Dr. Fehr is definitely the best psychologist that I have had the fortune of working with! He is knowledgeable, asks the right questions, and has been there for me through some tough times. I hope everyone has the privilege of working with someone as kind and personable as Dr. Fehr.
