Dr. Metcalfe’s primary focus for the past 14 years has been as a police psychologist providing L-3 evaluations for police officers, fitness for duty evaluations, and therapy for law enforcement personnel and their families. Dr. Metcalfe is also highly experienced conducting Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity evaluations and anger management assessments and treatment. He has a wealth of experience working with couples who are experiencing challenges in their relationships and helps them identify the problem areas and how to overcome them to enjoy a more satisfying relationship.

Dr. Metcalfe emphasizes the importance of the therapeutic relationship in his work with clients and incorporates several theoretical orientations. He finds psychodynamic theory often useful in understanding the etiology of a person’s problems and also utilizes interpersonal, existential, and narrative approaches to deepen that understanding. Insight alone is often not sufficient in resolving problems, however, and Dr. Metcalfe most often will rely on cognitive-behavioral principals to initiate and reinforce positive change. His warmth and enthusiasm put clients at ease and greatly facilitates the therapy process.
