Treatment with Dr. Fulop

I practice clinical psychology in a pragmatic manner and adhere to the spirit of Motivational Interviewing. In other words, my work is collaborative with you and your family, to attain your goals. I help you clarify your core values, and move through beliefs and behaviors that create barriers. I have designed my practice to be personal, and I am usually available by phone for emergencies or urgent consultations.
