Marlene Garza, Psy.D.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist in California (PSY# 31888) and New York (#024158) providing online psychological and neuropsychological services for residents of California and New York in both Spanish and English language.
As a Chicana and bilingual and bicultural, my aim is to privilege cultural contexts in assessments as well as to promote more effective strategies for change and growth in individual psychotherapy treatment. I use a strength-based and holistic approach when helping people to develop emotional emancipation and liberation from harmful beliefs and behaviors that may be holding them back from healing.
I work with adolescents and adults of all ages who are struggling with chronic and complex medical conditions, medical rehabilitation, substance use, maternal and postpartum issues, and gender identity.
I am a marathoner, CrossFit level 1 trainer, and a credentialed secondary school counselor. I also foster dogs and provide canine physical and psychological rehabilitation so that they may find forever homes.
