Lindsay O'Shea, Ph.D.

Whether you're seeking support for yourself or as part of a couple, I help people who are (among other things):

-Navigating loss, transitions, identity changes, work/life stress, or struggling with past traumas.
-Interested in catapulting current successes to peak performance levels by increasing their emotional intelligence.
-Wanting to increase confidence, communication, embrace vulnerability, & foster more fulfilling relationships.

Trained in psychodynamic perspectives, I believe that your past experiences unconsciously drive your present behavior, which then predicts your future. By exploring what motivates you, you can discover your personal values & actively create a life that helps you achieve your goals. In our therapy sessions, we can work together to uncover the underlying issues that may be holding you back so you can powerfully influence & create the life you desire. Are you ready for a change?

Education and Training

I earned a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from California School of Professional Psychology in Los Angeles, California. I have had the pleasure of training at the Wright Institute Los Angeles, Los Angeles LGBT Center, The Children's Collective, & WISE & Healthy Aging & have worked with patients across the age, gender, & sexuality spectrum.

My Master’s Thesis explored how social comparison on Facebook influences off-line relationship satisfaction. My Doctoral Dissertation entitled, “What’s love got to do with it: Exploring the millennial generation from hook ups to marriage,” explored how technology, gender, sexuality, technology, & family dynamics affect one’s view of relationships. I participated on a research team for four years during graduate school examining adolescent sexual health & behavior. In addition to conducting research, I assisted in co-creating & presenting workshops across the country & co-wrote an article on Sex Education in Schools for the Encyclopedia of Psychology & Gender. 

I have a passion for sharing psychological research in a relatable way with the community & have been featured in online publications such as Brit + Co. discussing snooping & communication in relationships, Singles Warehouse on romantic desire & gender differences in hook up culture, Shape.com, Los Angeles Psychological Association, & more.

As a registered Psychological Assistant (PSB 94024094), my work is clinically supervised by Chelsea Gottfurcht, Psy.D. (PSY# 26350).
