Carolina Knight, Psy.D.
Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
I am a licensed clinical psychology who works with individual adults and couples using a collaborative and holistic approach to help explore patterns, attachment style, trauma/past wounds, as well as other factors that may be getting in the way of a balanced and fulfilling life.
I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist (California License # 31814). I completed my bachelor’s degree in Psychology at the University of California, Berkeley (GO BEARS!). I received my master’s degree in Forensic Psychology from the City University of New York (CUNY) John Jay College of Criminal Justice and my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the PGSP-Stanford University Psy.D. Consortium.
I work with adults and couples using a relational approach that emphasizes connection: being seen, heard, and valued for who you are and where you are in your journey. My goal is to create a welcoming, nurturing, non-judgmental space where you feel safe to share your needs and explore the factors and patterns that may be impacting your quality of life.
As an immigrant, I am particularly sensitive to the many ways different people show vulnerability, and strive to take multicultural, interpersonal, and contextual factors into account in order to get to know the multiple identities forming our whole selves. I often explore the impact of systemic racism, homophobia, transphobia, sexism, and bias against disabilities. I also look at ways that culture, ethnicity, socio-economic status, sexual orientation, and gender influence identities.
I have a direct and transparent approach, and work collaboratively to identify goals and tailor treatment to your specific needs. I practice research supported therapies and often draw from humanistic, cognitive behavioral and mindfulness based techniques. I have received specialized training in EFT for couples, CBT, DBT & Motivational Interviewing.
I believe everyone is capable and worthy of healthy relationships with themselves and others. I feel so grateful for the opportunity to help clients increase awareness of and comfort with emotions, improve relationships, and achieve a more balanced and fulfilling life. Please contact me for a consultation to find out if I may be a good fit for you.
