Hello, my name is Dr. Carole West. I integrate psychoanalytic and cognitive behavioral (CBT) methods and interventions in treating a variety of psychological problems; however, areas of specialty include trauma from combat and sexual assault/abuse, anxiety disorders, depression and chronic pain management.

I am a fully licensed clinical psychologist in the state of Michigan. I earned my master’s and doctoral degrees in Clinical Psychology from Eastern Michigan University. During my graduate training, I had the privilege of working with diverse patient populations through the VA Ann Arbor, the University of Michigan Hospital, and Eastern Michigan University’s psychology clinic and student counseling center. I completed an APA-accredited predoctoral internship at the John Dingell VA Medical Center and an APA-accredited postdoctoral fellowship at the VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System.

I currently maintain a private psychology practice in Royal Oak, Michigan. I am a candidate in adult psychoanalysis at the Michigan Psychoanalytic Institute. I continue to collaborate with colleagues on psychological research projects and papers.

Please don’t hesitate to call my office (248) 607-3455 or email me email hidden; JavaScript is required if you have questions about me or the services I provide. Welcome to my practice and thank you for visiting my site.
