SUSAN F. DAVENPORT, Ph.D.
Licensed Psychologist, NCSP, ACC
I am a Licensed Psychologist with over 25 years of experience. I love working with people, and helping them to achieve their goals. My theoretical orientation has been eclectic, with an emphasis on cognitive behavioral, which addresses people’s thoughts and how their beliefs affect their feelings and actions. I perform psychological evaluations and psychotherapy with a broad population of clients.
My previous clinical experience includes working with Emergency Services through the Houston Medical Center, a position in the Houston County School System as a school psychologist, and working as a psychometrician and therapist on a psychiatric unit.
As a Licensed Psychologist, I have been in private practice since 1994 and provide both psychotherapy and psychological evaluations to a broad range of clients. Psychological evaluations generally include the addressing of specific referral reasons, such as ruling out learning or behavior problems, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, and depression, as well as evaluating the client’s current level of functioning. When working with clients, a cognitive/behavioral therapeutic approach is generally utilized in dealing with a client’s issues. This approach has been proven to be most effective in dealing with many psychological problems and concerns, including depression, anxiety, behavioral problems, and a range of social and psychological disorders.
As a certified Life Coach through the International Coach Federation, I am drawn to coaching because of the positive, powerful benefits provided to clients. I have always been driven by positive psychology. The power of believing in yourself is untold, and so often we lose that belief, or it becomes diminished through the course of everyday life. Coaching provides the arena for the client to experience the power and growth of their own skills and resources. I received coaching credentials through the ICF as an Associate Certified Coach in April of 2009, and enjoy working as a life coach.
Personally, I am the mother of two sons. My unique experiences as both a psychologist and coach provide me with a deeper understanding of the demands and needs made on parenting professionals.
