About Dr. India Gomez
Clinical Psychologist

My experience as a clinical psychologist extends across multiple settings including school-based health, residential treatment, and community mental health with clients of all ages from diverse backgrounds. As a predoctoral intern and postdoctoral fellow/registered psychologist at Native American Health Center, Oakland I provided psychotherapy, case-management, testing/assessment and integrated behavioral health services (IBH).

As a clinical psychologist, I own and run a private practice providing psychotherapy, personal/professional/executive coaching, testing/assessment, consultation and supervision in the San Francisco Bay Area and greater California. I presently serve clients in Alameda, Contra Costa, San Mateo, Marin, and Sonoma Counties and clients in Southern California.

Additionally, I review mental health articles for Goodrx, provide media interviews on mental health topics such as mental health parity, mental health benefits, and cultural competency in mental health care, and provide consultation services in the corporate sector.
