Benefits of Working With a Derma-Psychologist
Derma-psychologists are behavioral health specialists who support your patients with dermatological conditions that can be related to or exacerbated by stress such as eczema, severe acne, skin picking or hair pulling, rosacea, psoriasis, or vitiligo. We also support patients with social anxiety surrounding real or perceived physical disfigurement. We strive to be an integral part of the treatment team, working alongside our physician colleagues to provide holistic care, improve treatment outcomes, and enhance patients’ quality of life.
