What Sets Dr. Karg Apart from Other Therapists?

Despite popular belief, the name “therapist” can be used by anyone because there is no professional license, governing body, or educational background needed to call oneself a “therapist.” Unlike other therapists, clinical psychologists have their doctorate degree and are licensed to practice psychology — that is, they have the training and board certification to diagnose and treat psychological problems, disorders, or abnormal behavior. Unlike most other therapists, I also use evidence-based, best practices according to the empirical (research) literature. In other words, I use methods that have been demonstrated to be effective for a given psychological problem, disorder, or abnormal behavior.

Some clinical psychologists are trained in conducting assessments and providing psychotherapy, and some are trained to conduct research. I am a clinical psychologist that does all three.
