Hello, I'm Dr. Carole Goguen
In my early 20’s, I struggled with finding my place in the world. I worked in entertainment, business, real estate, and in tech. Each time I did well but never felt it was the right fit for me. The more I searched, the more I felt lost and insecure. My insecurity slowly turned into anxiety and feeling lost led to depression. I began to see everything as a setback, every setback as a failure, every failure felt traumatizing.
I began reading everything I could get my hands on to try to help myself. The more I read, the more I knew I couldn't do it on my own. So I decided to go to a therapist. That decision changed everything! I learned a more realistic, helpful view of both myself and the world. I learned to be kind to myself. I became a confident, independent woman.
The Power of Therapy Transformed Me
When I didn’t have to constantly fight self-doubt, depression, anxiety, and feeling lost, I was able to open myself up to find my passion. I realized that my purpose is to help others to have a more fulfilling life. I went to graduate school and gained experience working at community outpatient clinics, a rape center, inpatient substance abuse treatment center, juvenile hall, a forensic psychiatric hospital, and VA medical centers.
Now I'm able to put my passion into action. For over 20 years, I’ve worked with folks struggling with overwhelming stress, anxiety, depression, trauma (PTSD, traumatic grief), OCD, and grief. My clients are ethnically & culturally diverse and many are in the LGBTQ+ community. They come from many different walks of life include military veterans, homemakers, folks in the tech world, the entertainment industry, and healthcare professionals.
From personal experience, I know how hard it is to get to therapy when your life is jam-packed with work, school, and family. That's why I offer weeknight online video appointments so you can see me in the comfort of your own home at hours that work for you. With easy-to-use, secure video technology, you can be seen as late as 10:00 pm. Services available throughout California.
