Welcome Dr. Steve Hobbs Licensed Psychologist
Dr. Steve Hobbs
Licensed Psychologist

Welcome to my website. I have been working as a licensed psychologist in Lafayette and surrounding communities for over 25 years. During that time I have worked successfully and effectively with individuals, couples, and families to assist them in meeting their goals and improving the quality of their lives.

After growing up in Lafayette, I attended Williams College in Massachusetts. Following graduation, I worked at the Choate School in Connecticut with high school students as a teacher, counselor, and coach. I received my doctoral degree from the California School of Professional Psychology in Berkeley and have been licensed as a psychologist since 1985. In 1990 I started Lafayette Psychological Services, an affiliated group of licensed mental health professionals.

In my practice I help my clients in a number of areas:

  • Learning and Behavior: Children and Adolescents
  • Depression
  • Divorce and separation
  • Anxiety
  • Couple relationships
  • Anger management

Other significant areas of focus, which often connect with the general categories above, include:

  • Alcohol and drug difficulties
  • Baby boomer issues, including caretaking with elderly parents around such concerns as living arrangements, and coping with dementia and Alzheimer’s
  • Life transitions, including children leaving home (empty nest), mid-life, career changes, and retirement

I encourage you to read any of the sections of this site that relate to your concerns under Practice Areas. I certainly welcome your phone call or email to answer further questions.

In my work with clients I strive to provide a comfortable, welcoming environment where clients can feel safe to pursue their goals and find the answers and solutions they seek. My style and approach tends to be interactive, personal, and practical. I bring to this rewarding work enthusiasm, humor, empathy and ability to see the best in clients. I help clients develop the confidence and resilience that will enable them to achieve what matters most to them. Motivated clients can expect to make real progress toward that end. I look forward to speaking with you.
