Welcome to my website and to the complementary 'Tools and Skills' program for health and well-being. I am a licensed clinical psychologist and a listed member in the United States Olympic Committee Sport Psychology Registry, with an office in Palm Beach County, at the Boca Raton airport, serving the South Florida areas of Boca Raton, Palm Beach, Ft. Lauderdale and the rest of the world.
Now on Skype, I am available for consultation to any location in the world for either clinical or sports related issues. You can find me on skype under the username 'drmccauley' for all of your psychological treatment needs. Whether in the office or on Skype, I work with families, couples, and individuals who are struggling with mood disorders including depression and anxiety, phobias, panic attacks, trauma, conduct disorders, juvenile acting out, PTSD and other mental health conditions which need professional psychological treatment and counseling.
As one specialty of my practice, I work with individual athletes developing personalized treatment programs to meet their needs for sport specific mastery and with teams to cultivate team building skills through targeted psychological treatment.
My hope is that through this website you will learn enough about me and my approach to therapy that you can make the decision about whether we might work well together. I provide my patients with a safe and thought-provoking environment where they can talk about personal feelings and thoughts; learn ways to resolve the pain of their lives; find more meaning and happiness both personally and professionally; and for the athlete, whether amateur or professional, I present an opportunity to learn the skills necessary to achieve excellence in their given sport.
There is confusion about differences between psychotherapy and counseling. Counselors give advice for everyday problems. Counseling does not provide understanding at the level necessary for change. Counselors focus only on the surface issues. Psychotherapy explores the deeper unconscious aspects of peoples’ lives; it is a process of resolution and not simply problem solving.
The links on the left will provide answers to most of your questions regarding my practice. Call me to discuss how psychotherapy can be of help to you or to schedule an appointment.
