About Dr. Grossman

Seth Grossman, Psy.D., Founder and Licensed Psychologist

Dr. Seth Grossman is a licensed psychologist and the founder and clinical director of the Center for Psychological Fitness. He is also on the clinical faculty at Florida International University’s Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine in Miami. He is a past president of the Broward Chapter of the Florida Psychological Association, and a senior consultant for the late Dr. Theodore Millon’s Institute for the Study of Personology and Psychopathology where he recently led the revision of Millon’s flagship test, the Millon Clinical Multiaxial Inventory (MCMI-IV, 2015).

Seth has always been passionate about improving people’s lives. At the heart of Seth’s treatment philosophy is the knowledge that an individual’s personality serves as the lens for life experience, as well as the psyche’s immune system. Just like the body’s immune system, the personality can be resilient and adaptive in some areas, and possibly short-sighted and inflexible in others, with the latter making the person vulnerable to psychological difficulty. Drawing on his extensive knowledge of adaptive personality and personality disorders, Seth seeks to draw out and empower the personality’s strengths through therapy, collaborative assessment, and biofeedback.

For over a decade, Seth worked with and was mentored by the world-renowned personality theorist, Dr. Theodore Millon. Along with his mentor, Seth was the co-developer of the Personalized Psychotherapy model, and added the “Grossman Facet Scales” to two of the Millon personality tests. Seth has also been a guest lecturer on personality and clinical assessment at universities and professional settings nationally and internationally.
