Frequently Asked Questions

What is psychotherapy with Dr. Engle?

I am primarily interested in clients' internal experiences; your feelings and thoughts. Exploring and clarifying these is frequently useful in making decisions that face you, creating new ways of behaving and coping, and improving your relationship with yourself. I provide psychotherapy in an emotionally safe and private context, and utilize a style which involves my active participation in our conversation.

Couples/relationship difficulties are also an interest. Breaking down what specifically "communication problems" means opens a door to the patterns of behavior which have led to the current impasse. Examining those patterns, their origins and the factors which maintain them, can bring into being improved ways of relating.

What are the most common problems which bring clients into psychotherapy?

Depression, relationship problems, and anxiety are the most frequent problems.

What is Forensic Psychology?

Forensic Psychology is the overlap between psychology and the law. Typical issues involve parenting evaluations, various kinds of competencies, and factors in mitigation and aggravation.

In Family Law they are identifying the best interests of the child(ren). In Criminal Law they are describing the kinds of risks the defendant may pose at the present time and in the future.
