Insight Psychotherapy Group (IPG) welcomes Dr. Lesley Davis, Ben Quitarte, MFT and Dawn Beechner, LCSW to its staff roster to help provide continuing quick access to services for the surrounding community. The addition of more staff and the accompanying infrastructure ensures IPG can field requests for consultations (counseling, testing/assessment and business consultations) with a "same business day" response goal. Additionally, IPG has added career counseling services and increased its business consultation capabilities to meet local demand.

Insight Psychotherapy Group (IPG) is a multidisciplinary counseling and assessment group in Los Alamitos, CA, providing services to families, couples, children, adolescents and adult/geriatric individual clients from the surrounding communities and school districts. Recently, in addition to adding neuropsychological testing services with Dr. Charlotte Modahl, IPG has added to their staff roster and product lines to be able to continue providing quick access to services. The addition of more staff and the accompanying infrastructure ensures IPG can field requests for consultations (counseling, testing/assessment and business consultations) with a "same business day" response goal.

Dr. Nicole Stelter, PhD, MFT (Founder and CEO of IPG) coordinates the business consulting product lines. This includes employee assistance programming, organizational development and assessment projects and career counseling and assessment for individual clients and as a part of business outplacement activities secondary to a layoff or reorganization. "It's important to be able to address our clients' work and career issues with so much tumult in the general occupational environment. We're fortunate in that we can include workplace and individual career assessment and intervention in our clinically oriented treatment planning as counselors and psychotherapists" says Dr. Stelter. "Being able to offer these services in addition to adding to our wonderfully talented and diverse clinical staff can only improve our ability to serve our community's mental health and business support needs."
