Michael Haas, PsyD

As a licensed Clinical Psychologist in the State of New Jersey, my primary function is to serve as a consultant and ally in helping clients identify and reach their treatment goals. During my doctoral training I specialized in working with children, adolescents, and families across a variety of systems. This range of experiences has allowed me many opportunities to work with exceptional families, many of whom were entering treatment for the first time. In my work I aim to build strong connections with community stakeholders including school staff, doctors, and members of faith communities to enact meaningful change for clients of all ages. I currently lead individual, group, and family sessions with children, teens, and adults. Typical presenting problems for the clients I serve include depression, anxiety, difficulties in important relationships, attention problems, and disruptive behaviors.

When working with clients, I often use an approach called Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy. CBT is a short-term treatment program which explores thoughts, feelings, and behaviors and their impact on well-being and interpersonal success. I also draw upon strategies from Functional Analytic Psychotherapy in my work. FAP is a unique treatment which emphasizes and draws on the relationships I build with clients through our work together. Both of these treatments are supported by extensive research, and allow my clients and me to honor their individual, family, and cultural values.

I completed my training at La Salle University’s APA-Accredited Clinical Psychology program with a focus on child and family therapy. I completed two years of intensive training at the Child Guidance Center of Southern Connecticut as part of my program. During that time I worked primarily with children and teens in both office-based and mobile treatment programs. I completed specialized training in working with clients who experienced significant trauma, as well as with youth who reported suicidal ideation and self-harm behavior. I also have extensive experience completing psychological testing with children and adolescents to explore directions for treatment and academic accommodations. In addition to serving younger clients in outpatient, school, and residential settings, I have worked with adults in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
