About Dr. Corrine
COMPASSIONATE. KNOWLEDGEABLE. EFFECTIVE.
These are just a few words that have been used by others to describe my approach to working with clients.
Born and raised in Sacramento, my study of psychology began at Sacramento City College. From there, I transferred to California State University, Los Angeles and earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology in 1999. I moved back to my hometown for graduate school, and I received my Master of Arts degree in Counseling Psychology from California State University, Sacramento in 2003.
I became licensed in Marriage and Family Therapy in 2006 and opened my private practice that same year. Due to my passion for knowledge and desire to be the most equipped to help others, I went on to earn my Doctorate degree in Clinical Psychology from Alliant International University in 2014 and became licensed as a Psychologist in 2019.
I have over 20 years of experience providing
mental health services in a variety of settings
(i.e., school, community mental health centers, group home, intensive outpatient treatment program, private practice).
I have extensive experience helping people with a range of presenting issues, from situational stressors
to severe mental health concerns.
I have specialized training treating anxiety disorders (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Panic Disorder, Social Anxiety, Specific Phobias, etc.) using Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), including Exposure and Response Prevention Therapy (ERP).
Additionally, I am an active community mental health advocate.
I am the current President of the Sacramento Valley Psychological Assocation (SVPA), and I also serve as SVPA's Local Advocacy Network representative. I am an appointed member of the Sacramento County Mental Health Board (MHB), where I serve as the Chairperson, and I also serve on the Wellness Crisis Call Center and Response Program (WCCCRP) Advisory Committee.
Social justice has always been a major interest of mine. My passion for activism was ignited after the killing of George Floyd in May 2020. Since then, I have volunteered with local racial justice organizations to foster awareness of social injustices and to promote community solidarity. My involvement has included consultation regarding the importance of self-care for activists, design & co-facilitation of healing spaces for community events, and promoting awareness & organizing support for non-law enforcement response to mental health crises.
I strive to not just be a culturally competent practitioner but an anti-racist psychologist. I believe that to be an anti-racist psychologist requires not only acknowledgement of racism but active opposition to racism within ourselves, our research, our teaching, our organizations, our practice, and the policies shaping our society.
