Are you ready to make changes in your life but are not sure how? I am a licensed psychodynamic psychologist in private practice for over 12 years. I specialize in working with people who have felt stuck and have made attempts to move forward but have not been satisfied with the outcome. My approach is collaborative as we explore your unique personal circumstances and how they impact your life. With compassion and understanding you will be empowered to explore the relationship you have with yourself and the world and learn how to strengthen and deepen these relationships.

Camila Williams, Ph.D.
Psychologist

Camila Williams, Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

In 90501 - Nearby to Santa Monica.

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.

Carl H. Shubs, Ph.D.
Psychologist

Carl H. Shubs, Ph.D.

Psychologist

In 90212 - Nearby to Santa Monica.

A psychologist has the most extensive training in psychology of all the mental health professions. Some people with a Ph.D. are licensed as Marriage and Family Therapists (and I have that license as well) or as Social Workers, not psychologists. As a psychologist, I understand the benefits and limitations of research, and I also bring that to my psychotherapy practice. Psychologists work with the full range of psychological and emotional issues, without limitation, unlike MFTs and LCSWs who have a more limited scope of practice. WHAT THIS MEANS FOR YOU: I’m well trained to help you with whatever issues bring you to me.
