MHA Welcomes Psychologist Dr. Philip Cromer, PhD to Growing Team
The Mental Health Association in Indian River County is excited to announce the expansion of our psychology services to meet community needs by welcoming new team member Dr. Philip Cromer, PhD. Dr. Cromer is a licensed psychologist with an impressive, multi-faceted career. He was integrally involved in the management and operations of CAPS-FAU (Counseling & Psychological Services at Florida Atlantic University) and contributed to improvements and expansion of their psychological services from 2005-2011. He has also run a successful private practice since 2016.
Dr. Cromer’s unique experience counseling students will enable him to broaden and improve the internal and outreach programs that MHA offers for young people in our community who suffer from depression, anxiety, PTSD, identity issues, learning disabilities, substance abuse, and personality disorders. His work with veterans at the Louis A. Johnson VA Medical Center in West Virginia gives him the knowledge and expertise to implement new psychological screenings, assessments, and programs for local veterans. He’ll also be available for individual and group therapy sessions for residents of all ages and backgrounds.
Dr. Coppola, CEO of the MHA is thrilled to have Dr. Cromer on board. “Dr. Cromer’s experience will be invaluable to our clients and company. He not only cares about his patients but also cares deeply about our community, having served as an adjunct professor in Abnormal Psychology at IRSC and a clinical on-site coordinator at the Parent-Child Centers in West Palm Beach and Ft. Pierce. He is an exceptional addition to our team, and we could not be happier that he chose to serve the community through the MHA,” said Dr. Coppola. The feeling is mutual for Dr. Cromer stating, “I am honored to be a part of the Mental Health Association’s long history of providing quality psychological services to our community. I look forward to a long and productive career here.”
