Clinical Psychologist

In 90010 - Nearby to Compton.

There are many types of counselors who provide psychotherapy. As a clinical psychologist (Psy.D.), I am trained in both the the art of psychotherapy and the science of psychology. I received clinical training in a research lab that was doing clinical trials and as such, I only utilize treatment techniques that have been empirically validated through extensive research. These techniques are effective in providing relatively rapid relief from uncomfortable symptoms and in encouraging lasting behavioral changes which maintain gains and prevent relapse.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 92831 - Nearby to Compton.

I became a psychologist to broaden my knowledge of the therapeutic process. My doctoral schooling exposed me to theories of personality and psychotherapy not covered in earlier training. This experience afforded me the opportunity to focus on therapies which are characterized by a close working relationship between client and therapist. I came to see that it is the relationship that heals and that by exploring interactions in the therapeutic relationship as well as looking at present day and historical feelings and thoughts, insight and clarity of mind result, enabling lasting change to be achieved. Becoming a Psychologist enhanced my clinical skills and knowledge base immeasurably.

Psychologist

Camila Williams, Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

In 90501 - Nearby to Compton.

I went to a graduate program focused on clinical research and quickly realized that my heart was in the therapy room and not the research lab. This is why I pursued advanced clinical training. Psychologists are not required to complete a postdoctoral fellowship in order to become licensed. However, I craved advanced training and completed a fellowship at a VA hospital where I specialized in cognitive behavioral therapy. As a psychologist I feel privileged when a client allows me to join them on their journey to a life worth living. By teaching you tools and skills to help change your thoughts and behaviors, my wish is to empower you to become your own therapist and enact change in your life.
