Meet the CWT Team

“As the owner and founder of California Women’s Therapy, I’ve handpicked a small, but mighty team of licensed clinical psychologists. Together, our specialities cover a wide range of issues impacting women of all ages and life stages. Our psychologists work from a variety of research-based and highly regarded theoretical orientations. My goal in assembling this team was to ensure that any women in California can reach out to CWT and find exactly the kind of therapeutic support she is seeking.

Each of our providers share a bit about themselves and about their approach to therapy on their provider pages. Additionally, our free initial consultations are an opportunity to ask in-depth questions about your provider, their expertise, and their style of therapy to ensure you’ve found a great match. You may reach out with a provider in mind or ask that we steer you in the right direction on your therapeutic journey.”
