Clinical Psychologist

To strengthen my role as the Executive Director of the La Vie Counseling Center I received advanced training in psychodynamic psychotherapy from the Southern California Psychoanalytic Institute because of my interest in getting to the roots of the problems that drive people to therapy. I have studied and practiced an in-depth approach to psychotherapy for over 20 years and have written books that have sold over a million copies and been translated into several languages. My desire is to not only help people feel better, but help them get better and live that way daily. I love going to work each day, because helping people live healthier lives makes me a better person in the process.

Licensed Psychologist

In 90815 - Nearby to South Gate.

I am a Ph.D. psychologist. My approach to helping people is to use short-term evidenced-based therapeutic techniques for your particular disorder, problem, or issue. I believe in first assessing the problem and then developing an individualized treatment plan to help you resolve it. I use skill-building approaches that are practical and useful and which require active patient participation both in sessions and between sessions.

Psychologist

Camila Williams, Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

In 90501 - Nearby to South Gate.

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.

Thank you for seeking out a psychologist. I am very proud to be a psychologist and to use my education, training and experience to help you heal your emotional pain and set you on a path to a happier, healthier and more fulfilling life. In addition to being a psychologist, I am also a certified group psychotherapist, having done post-doctoral training in group therapy.

So, whether you are struggling with depression or anxiety, can't seem to find the right relationship, or find yourself eating or drinking too much, I'd like to help.

As a Clinical Psychologist with over 25 years of experience, the focus of my work is PASSION.

Psychologist

Carl H. Shubs, Ph.D.

Psychologist

In 90212 - Nearby to South Gate.

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.

Clinical Psychologist

Licensed Psychologist

In 90025 - Nearby to South Gate.

Why choose a psychologist? And why choose me? The breadth and depth of my training comes through in everything I do. Every year, increasingly valuable therapeutic techniques and methods are being developed in this field. Nevertheless, I'm aware that having the core essentials developed over the five years of training it takes to become a psychologist still provides the most complete basis for helping others to grow and change. With the fundamentals that are gained in human development (child development in particular), neuroscience, and client-centered therapeutic principles, the education I've obtained provides a solid foundation upon which we can do our work together. Since completing my degree, I've worked with clients for 35 years. I offer you both my competence and my compassion.
