Dr. Simmons' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Simmons "I am a licensed clinical psychologist with nearly 40 years experience. I trained in the Detroit area, attended the University of Detroit and completed a double internship at Detroit psychiatric Institute. I moved Traverse city nearly 30 years ago. I maintain an active practice with children, adolescents, and adults. I strongly believe it is essential that rapport and a connection occur between a doctor in any patient with whom they are working. That is an essential component of psychotherapy, and increasingly neuro developmental research supports the critical component of the relationship"
