Carole Goguen, PsyD

If you are haunted by terrible memories, if you feel lost and lonely—even in a crowd or with loved ones, if you are anxious or depressed, or if you are stressed out by the world around you, I have over 20 years experience using scientifically-proven therapeutic treatments to help you build a bigger, more colorful life. My clinical experience includes: the National Center for PTSD, the Valley Rape Trauma Center, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, Patton State Hospital, Foothill Mental Health and Rehabilitation Center, Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health, Tarzana Chemical Dependency Treatment Center, the Maple Community Mental Health Center.

My life’s work is to help others to thrive. I have a special interest in trauma recovery (from childhood and adult sexual, physical, and emotional abuse; vehicle accidents) and for helping you to create deeply gratifying interpersonal relationships. You have found a compassionate and safe place to express your fears, explore your emotions, and gain a greater understanding of yourself. For your convenience, I have weekend appointments available. Lets get started. Contact Me Today.
