Social Science Consulting Presents: Accent On Wellness Psychology Associates 

Welcome from our Clinical Director:

For over 3 years our practice, Social Science Consulting, provided quality mental health services to children, adolescents, adults and older adults.  Thanks to your support, we have grown from a small private practice that I founded as a solo practitioner, to a vibrant Group Practice employing licensed and pre-licensed mental health practitioners that include Clinical Psychologists and Marriage and Family Therapists.

          …So, what is in a name?

Feedback from our satisfied patients tells us that they enjoy our flexible hours, beautiful offices, and the cordial, respectful and restful atmosphere that we provide.  However, what they like the most, and what I believe sets us apart from other practices, is that we don’t limit our focus only on the problems at hand; that we do, in fact, work to bring forth total “wellness.”  Accent On Wellness Psychology Associates Inc. was born from this very concept.

          …So what does “wellness” look like in this context?  

For example, I believe that it is not enough to help someone feel less anxious or depressed.  These conditions are often symptomatic of other life problems, so we don’t ignore those needs.  In fact, as solution-focused, strength-based therapists, our goal is to help you uncover your true potential and to help you lead a life that is worth celebrating.  While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve these challenges to enable you to move forward so that you experience a more fulfilling and meaningful life. In order to achieve these goals, we will work with you to identify social supports that can help you help yourself. Or, if need be, we may suggest referrals to other professionals.

         …What does all of this mean to me?

Whether you are looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or crisis, a work disability evaluation (not SDI), or are just ready to move in a new direction in your life, we look forward to working with you to help you achieve your goals by focusing on your total wellness; by providing an Accent On [YOUR] Wellness.

Dr. Daniel E. Bruzzone, Psy.D., QME, President and Clinical Director


Our Philosophy on Mental Wellness and Treatment:

According to our founder, mainstream psychotherapy can often be described as problem-focused.  However, as evidence-based practitioners, our counselors at Accent On Wellness Psychology Associates Inc. can best be described as solution-focused within a framework of a caring, respectful and empathic therapeutic environment.  

Our work embraces all facets of the biopsychosocial (physiological, psychological, and social) model of mental health; and, while we are trained to delve deeply into the patient's past using recognized psychodynamic, depth-based psychological interventions, we recognize that most people have it within themselves to resolve their own problems and need only a little guidance, and to be heard and understood, in order to gather the emotional strength required to resolve the situations in which they find themselves.  Therefore, our counselors rely heavily on a patient-centered, respectful approach to psychotherapy in order to help uncover existential concerns that are examined and treated in a time-effective and cost-effective manner using proven experiential, cognitive-behavioral, and solution-focused interventions to help each person find his or her own way to mental wellness.

A Special Message to Men:

Unlike popular folklore, our experience indicates that men can benefit from counseling as much as women.  However, what tends to be true is that men have a more difficult time acknowledging and expressing their feelings.  Therefore, when working with men, our counselors tailor their therapeutic approaches to those more closely aligned to the needs of men in order to produce more positive outcomes.

A Special Message to Members of the Military, Pilots and First Responders:

At Accent On Wellness Psychology Associates Inc. we recognize that pilots and those in the military, current or veterans, police officers, fire fighters, and emergency personnel have their own set of specific concerns that may bring them to counseling, especially as pertains to their need for privacy and confidentiality.  Dr. Bruzzone has found that his extensive experience as a member of the military and with aviation has made it possible for him to form a common frame of reference allowing him to connect at a deeper level with pilots, veterans and first responders, while attending to the individual’s need for confidentiality.
