About me

I am a licensed psychologist in California with over 30 years of professional work experience. I have helped clients with a variety of concerns, including relationship issues, family conflicts, childhood trauma, problems with motivation, self-esteem/confidence and career difficulties. My experience has come from a wide variety of settings, including private practice, community mental health-outpatient and inpatient, school administration, and prison populations. I have provided individual, couple, family and group therapy to adolescents and adults. In terms of my personal approach to therapy, I understand that when people are seeking therapy, they ultimately want to live a happier and more gratifying life. I provide a safe place for you to feel unjudged, listened to and supported. We work together to help you gain clarity and insight into your current personal issues and when appropriate, insight into childhood influences. You will set obtainable goals and learn skills to help you to accomplish them and move forward in your life. I believe you are the expert of your story, and you have many strengths that will assist you in identifying and overcoming things that challenge you. Taking the first step in seeking a happier life takes courage and I am here to support you in that process.

She's an excellent therapist and makes me think beyond what I'm feeling right now.

Billie is a fantastic therapist. She listens with kindness and compassion. When I came to Billie I was in a super stressful situation at work, which caused me to develop a lot of anxiety. My levels of stress and anxiety were affecting my ability to get a good night's sleep and affecting my overall health. Thankfully Billie new exactly how to help me through it. After the first two sessions it felt like a weight was taken off my shoulders. Fast forward to five months later, I feel much happier and healthier. Thank you, Billie!

Billie is not surface level, she helps you get to the root cause of issues. The level of awareness I’ve already gained is exactly what I wanted out of therapy. She helps you question and look at things you often won’t do on your own. She offers guidance to do the inner work that is needed for change. I’m grateful to have found her.

I was very nervous to speak to someone about my problems but Dr. Ivra was so kind and understanding. I really appreciated her insight and expertise and she made me feel comfortable right away. I highly reccomend her as a therapist.
