Treatment with Dr. Fulop
I practice clinical psychology in a pragmatic manner and adhere to the spirit of Motivational Interviewing. In other words, my work is collaborative with you and your family, to aid you to attain your goals. I help clarify core values and strengths and sort through beliefs and behaviors that create problems. I have designed my practice to be personal and I am usually available by phone for emergencies or urgent consultations.
