Dr. Foresteen Forbes

(Psy.D.)

About Me

Hello and welcome!
I am a psychologist licensed in California with over 20 years of experience. I received my BS in Nursing from BIOLA University. I was a Navy Nurse for 31/2 years and served in Saudi Arabia during the Gulf War. I earned my doctorate in psychology from Azusa Pacific University. I worked in a state hospital for 14 years specializing in adults with a history of childhood trauma. I also specialize in relationship issues, parenting problems and personality disorders. My treatment approach consists of
Cognitive Behavioral therapy(CBT), Internal Family Systems, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Attachment-based therapy and aims to build or rebuild a trusting, supportive relationship that will help prevent or treat anxiety or depression. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Dr. Forbes has been the best counselor I’ve ever worked with. She’s helped me tremendously and has really helped me understand and pinpoint what aspects of my life that I need to work on. I highly recommend working with her- she is amazing!
