Dr. Denna Sanchez


About Me

Hello my name is Dr. Denna Sanchez. I am a licensed clinical psychologist in the state of California. I have an MA and PhD in Clinical Psychology from The California School of Professional Psychology and a BA from the California State University, Los Angeles. Currently, I am the coordinator of psychological services at a local community college where I manage and plan the mental health services for a diverse college student population in a working class suburb near Los Angeles. I also have a small private practice where I provide career, college, and counseling services for individuals in the community. I have been practicing for over 23 years and have worked with individuals, families, and couples from diverse backgrounds in New York, New Jersey, and Los Angeles.
I am the first in my family to graduate college, the daughter of teen parents, and I was raised in a home with domestic violence and alcoholism. I am a compassionate therapist who works with clients to find the best options to make improvements in their lives. I use psychodynamic, humanistic/client-centered, and cognitive behavioral techniques to find the best solutions to improve the lives of my clients.
I am open to working with individuals from diverse communities and from all backgrounds.

I'm really glad I met Dr. Sanchez, she's the first therapist I've spoken to who's really understood my problems. It's honestly amazing how quickly she picks up what I'm saying even when I feel like I can't express them myself. I look forward to my sessions each week, and am grateful to be working with her.

I feel like Dr. Sanchez hears me and is really going to help me with the difficulties I've been facing for awhile. I'm looking forward to continuing my sessions with her in the coming weeks.
