Clinical Psychologist and Founder of Boulevard Therapy
Individual Adults, Couples/Relationship
Dr. Walker believes life is a journey, and we often benefit from sharing our journey with someone who can help navigate life’s unexpected or unfamiliar territories. Sometimes, the journey can be difficult when we are overwhelmed with stress and challenges that leave us feeling immobilized, out of control, confused, and/or in despair. Another perspective can be valuable as we navigate these paths.
Dr. Walker enjoys working with individuals and couples who are either in transition or experiencing unexpected events, feelings of “being stuck”, or making unhealthy repetitive decisions. She also enjoys working with those who want to grow from life’s adversities and who want the healthiest path in their journey of self-discovery, growth, and health.
Dr. Walker’s training was grounded in the psychodynamic theory that our earliest experiences shape who we are, how we carry ourselves in adulthood, and impact the decisions we make today. Dr. Walker, however, subscribes to and incorporates other theories in her work. Her approach is eclectic as she believes everyone should be treated as a unique individual.
Dr. Walker received her doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology from the California School of Professional Psychology in 1997. She has been in private practice for more than 20 years and is excited to be expanding that practice to include other therapists/counselors/professionals who are equally passionate about their work, and their roles as ‘navigator’ in the journeys of others.
