My Approach to Helping
Hello my name is Dr. Denna Sanchez. I am a licensed clinical psychologist in the state of California. I have an MA and PhD in Clinical Psychology from The California School of Professional Psychology and a BA from the California State University, Los Angeles. Currently, I am the coordinator of psychological services at a local community college where I manage and plan the mental health services for a diverse college student population in a working-class suburb near Los Angeles. I also have a small private practice where I provide career, college, and counseling services for individuals in the community. I have been practicing for over 23 years and have worked with individuals, families, and couples from diverse backgrounds in New York, New Jersey, and Los Angeles.
I am the first in my family to graduate college, the daughter of teen parents, and I was raised in a home with domestic violence and alcoholism. I am a compassionate therapist who works with clients to find the best options to make improvements in their lives. I use psychodynamic, humanisticclient-centered, and cognitive behavioral techniques to find the best solutions to improve the lives of my clients. My specialties include, but are not limited to, anxiety, depression, stress, life transitions, relationships conflicts, grief, divorce, and LGBTQ+. I am culturally sensitive and open to working with teens and adults from diverse communities and from all backgrounds.
