Aleksandra Marinovic, Psy.D. (San Luis Obispo)
(She/Her/Hers) Licensed Clinical Psychologist
I have over 10 yrs. of clinical experience in the mental health field working primarily with adults & college-age students struggling with substance abuse, depression, anxiety, family/relationship problems, trauma, life-transitions, personal growth, & self-acceptance. I was born and raised in Europe & am open to also working with clients who are from a wide range of countries & are experiencing difficulties in adjusting to life in the U.S. I am warm, caring, non-judgmental, & able to provide you a safe space to address today’s stressors.
I’ve delivered clinical services in psychiatric inpatient hospitals, inpatient/outpatient substance abuse programs, Department of Defense, outpatient community clinics, eating disorder treatment centers, university counseling centers, & outpatient psychotherapy offices. My approach includes CBT, family systems, DBT, and positive psychology treatment methods.
I have a deep curiosity, appreciation & respect for each person’s individuality. I am an active listener who provides open & honest feedback in a compassionate & respectful manner. I will work collaboratively with you to set goals & quickly pinpoint the issues that are causing roadblocks in your life. Recovery from psychological distress is fully possible!
