About Dr. Frontman
I am a Licensed Psychologist who has been in practice for over 25 years. My practice uses innovative, culturally-sensitive clinical methods. We openly discuss the rationale for all clinical approaches and strategies. My practice encourages active, collaborative participation. The bottom-line is a sensible, practical, and goal-focused approach. I practice as a Systems-Oriented Therapist, integrated within the principles and practices of Systems-Centered® Therapy
. Progress in psychotherapy is evaluated weekly using MyOutcomes
and the OQ System
My experience includes 20 years serving as a Senior Psychologist at the Georgia Tech Counseling Center, 20 years of private practice, Pre-Doctoral Internship at the Dallas Child Guidance Clinic, and Post-Doctoral Fellowship at the Dallas VA Chemical Addiction Program. As a "System’s-Oriented Therapist," I maintain adherence and continuous training within the Systems-Centered Training & Research Institute (SCTRI). I have presented at psychotherapy and addiction recovery conferences and serve on local advisory boards.
On-line listings for my practice may be found through a number of websites. These include the Georgia Psychological Association
and American Psychological Association
, and the National Health Service Psychologists
, a certification entitled only for psychology graduates of doctoral programs and internships approved by the American Psychological Association. You also find on-line listings with the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapists
