About

Marlene Garza, Psy.D.

Hello all!
I am a licensed clinical psychologist (PSY# 31888) in California providing online psychological and neuropsychological services for residents of California 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 treatment. I use a strength-based and holistic approach. I work with 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.
