About Dr. India Gomez

India Gomez, PhD - Licensed Psychologist

My Education and Experience

I received a B.A. in Psychology at Sonoma State University and received both my M.A. and Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at Alliant International University (CSPP) in San Francisco.  I have a certificate in Latin American Family Therapy from Alliant International University (CSPP).

My experience includes working in a variety of settings including school-based health, residential treatment, and community mental health with clients of all ages.  I worked at Native American Health Center (Oakland, CA) as a predoctoral intern and postdoctoral fellow/registered psychologist in the outpatient clinic providing psychotherapy, case-management, and testing/assessment. I also provided integrated behavioral health services (IBH) in the medical clinic.

I currently own and run my own private practice as a licensed clinical psychologist providing psychotherapy, personal and professional coaching, testing/assessment, consultation and supervision in the San Francisco Bay Area/East Bay/North Bay/California (Oakland, San Francisco, Berkeley, Walnut Creek, Sebastopol). I work with clients through telehealth/telemedicine (video or phone) who may be traveling or living outside of the immediate Bay Area/East Bay.  I work with clients remotely in the South Bay, Peninsula, Marin County, Sonoma County and clients in areas with limited health services available such as Humboldt County and Lake County. I provide equine assisted psychotherapy and coaching for clients in collaboration with other practitioners: http://www.bayareaequinetherapy.com
