About

Hello, my name is Dr. Stephen Scherer. I've been in private practice since 2007. My practice is founded on evidence-based therapeutic interventions, including Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Behavior Modification techniques, and Eye-Movement and Desensitization (EMDR). CBT is best suited for individuals experiencing depression, anxiety, and other mood-related issues. Behavior modification is well-suited for individuals seeking help for addictive behaviors, communication training, and structured interventions. EMDR is appropriate for trauma processing, including single-instance as well as complex trauma.
In addition to my clinical practice I was a college level instructor for ten years. I taught introductory psychology, learning, and behavior modification courses. I completed my doctorate at West Virginia University and my postdoctoral training at Practical Recovery Services in La Jolla, CA.
My office is located near the intersections of Highways 8 and 5. I accept direct payment for services as well as insurance payments from the following networks: Aetna, APS, Blue Shield of California, Cigna, LifeSynch, Managed Health Network (MHN), Medicare, and Tricare.
