Dr. Kelly O'Neill


About Me

Welcome. I am a licensed psychologist in California with over 25 years’ experience in providing adult psychotherapy. I received my PhD in Clinical Psychology from Alliant University and completed Predoctoral and Postdoctoral fellowships at Yale University. My education extensive and multi-faceted and includes training in Human Development, neuropsychology, health psychology, psychological assessment, cognitive-behaviorally-oriented psychotherapy, psychodynamic psychotherapy, and psychoanalysis. I am skilled in treating anxiety, depression, trauma-related disorders, and psychiatric conditions associated with chronic pain and exposure to various forms of chronic stress.

I have a compassionate, calm and friendly demeanor, which helps others feel comfortable and at ease. My education, training, and experiences are very helpful in terms of achieving a successful psychotherapeutic experience. My therapeutic approach is tailored to the individual needs of the client. I believe that health, notably mental health, is multifaceted and influenced not only by our thoughts and feelings, but also our prior experiences, environment, health, culture, and other social factors. I look forward to meeting you and working together.

This is my first time ever seeking therapy and I am proud to say that Dr. O'Neill has been a major help. She is friendly, none judgmental and offers the best help to her ability. I can say that I feel comfortable when talking to her about things going on in my life and look forward to our weekly meetings. Seeking help can be daunting but after meeting with Dr. O'Neill it has helped me realize how amazing therapy can be and I would totally recommend her.
