John P Kline, PhD, Psychologist in Mobile
Dr. Kline's practice provides a compassionate, relaxed, and informal, environment where people in emotional pain can focus on getting better without fear of judgment. With experience and expertise spanning cognitive, behavioral, emotional, neurophysiological, and sociocultural levels of analysis, he provides an integrative, individualized, non-pharmacological approach to treating mental illness. If you are already taking medication, psychotherapy can help make it more effective. He believes that a diagnosis can help inform treatment, but does not define you. Diagnostic categories often don't entirely fit a given individual, so treatment needs to reflect individual goals and needs.
"I think it fair to say that emotion and emotion regulation are at the heart of my practice. They are fundamentally linked to many problems, including PTSD, depression, substance abuse, mood disorders, and anxiety disorders. I advocate a biopsychosocial approach to mental health maintenance."
Broadly knowledgable, having studied and worked in a variety of academic, research, medical, and private practice facilities around the country. Expertise in: Mood Disorders; Anxiety Disorders; Personality Disorders; Substance Abuse; Adjustment Issues; Geriatric Psychology; Dementia; Biological Psychology; Quantitative EEG; Psychophysiology; Assessment; Biofeedback; Personality Assessment; Health Psychology; Behavioral Medicine; Music Therapy
