Dr. Short's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Short "Starting 31 years ago as a technician during graduate school and a couple of stints as Clinical Director, this has allowed me to have a general practice in psychology. I currently work with adolescents, general psychology, address depression, anxiety, chronic pain, bipolar illness, substance abuse and adjustment disorder. I feel it is very important for the patient to connect with their clinician in a way that makes sense to them."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Short "We remember that each patient is an individual, a member of a family and a member of a larger community. Each patient requires a varied amount of physical, emotional, psychological, social and spiritual support.

We believe that each patient has basic needs, rights, privileges and preferences, which must be respected regardless of race, color, age, sex, creed, national origin, economic status or physical disability.

It is our belief that every patient has the right to know the truth about his/her condition and that it is our duty to prepare patients for these truths and for their participation in decisions regarding their care.

To preserve each individual's dignity and to gain his or her trust we know we must introduce ourselves and explain our role, use the individual's preferred name, use appropriate touch such as on the arm or with a handshake, explain our interventions to manage expectations and review the plan of care with him or her regularly."
