Louanne W. Davis, Psy.D.
|Personal Statement||My current clinical, teaching, and research focus involves working with individuals who have more serious and chronic mental health conditions such as schizophrenia and PTSD. I particularly enjoy developing and testing psychological interventions that improve functioning in all aspects of life. I am also interested in exploring ways to assist individuals to reduce the suffering that accompanies their physical and mental health conditions and help them to create a meaningful life that does not hinge on decreasing or eliminating illness symptoms.|
