The question has often been raised, “What is a Psychologist?” Clark Hull, one of the leading psychologists of our time gave this definition of a psychologist:
“A psychologist is a person who is trying to make a new renaissance. This new renaissance would produce a new type of individual – one who gloried in his or her own individuality and in the individuality of others. The task of a psychologist is to make a difference; to increase the joy, zest, and richness of his fellow human beings.”
Dr. Fadell believes this to be the basis of her work and training as a psychologist and therapist. Her primary goal is to help others dare to let their lives be great and to keep individuals and families from choosing failure when success is a real and attainable option. She recognizes that taking the first step toward change can bring forth several emotions, such as relief, uncertainty, and even fear. Be assured that your work with Dr. Fadell will be collaborative, thoughtful, respectful, and specific to your needs.
