Dr. Keesler's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Keesler "I consider myself as a man of varied heritage, interests, and experiences. I was raised in the Southern United States, attended college in Los Angeles, then graduate school in the greater Philadelphia area where I now make my home. In that time I have visited four continents, speak slivers of several languages, and met some amazing people who have helped shape my worldview. I believe people have the ability to shape their lives and destinies by the choices they make, but recognize the world is an inherently unequal place. I also believe that most people are generally doing the best they can most of the time, doing what they think is right for themselves and the people they care about. Of course, we can all use a little help sometimes, whether it's from an afterschool tutor, a good optometrist, a personal trainer at the gym, or a mental health professional. Toward that end, I believe in the collective effects of small tweaks to produce big changes."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Keesler "Conducting psychological or neuropsychological assessment, I emphasize the biopsychosocial model of case conceptualization. This means a shared attention - in no particular order of emphasis - to biological factors (e.g., genetic, neurodevelopmental, medical), psychological factors (e.g., mood, personality, and behavior), and social factors (e.g., family, culture, socioeconomic status). Individuals are not simply their chronic illness, their traumatic event, or their education level. Nothing exists in a vacuum. Only by trying to understand all the complementary and competing forces can we truly begin to understand an individual's areas of function and dysfunction.

Providing therapy, rehabilitation, or other intervention, I strive toward goal-oriented work backed by research supporting its effectiveness. I am also a strong advocate of non-pharmacological intervention as a first-line treatment (except in severe cases), which may include a mixture of talk therapy and lifestyle changes. "
