Carole Goguen Practice Description
I've worked with individual adults facing overwhelming stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, OCD, and grief. My clients come from diverse backgrounds, including the LGBTQ+ community, military veterans, homemakers, tech professionals, those in the entertainment industry, and healthcare workers, among others. Prior to founding Night Owl Psychotherapy, I served as the Associate Director of Research and Education within the Executive Division of the National Center for PTSD, and 20 years as a staff psychologist at the VA Los Angeles Ambulatory Care Clinic focusing on veterans' well-being. During my tenure at the VA, I played a pivotal role in training and supervising psychology practicum students and internship trainees. Understanding the challenges of busy lives, I offer weeknight online video appointments, providing therapy in the comfort of your home at convenient hours, even as late as 10:00 pm. These services are available throughout California. Let's embark on this journey of self-discovery and healing together.
