Is it time to make a change? Let's talk.
Lindsay O'Shea, Ph.D.
By exploring what motivates you, you can discover your personal values and actively create a life that helps you achieve your goals. I enjoy supporting individuals and couples therapeutically as they embrace vulnerability, navigate life transitions, relationships, career-related stress, identity formation, and overcoming loss.
My goal in therapy is to co-create a space that allows for vulnerability, safety, trust, authenticity, and connection as patients explore the inner workings of their emotional and life experiences. I strive to maintain an empathic, curious, compassionate, and warm stance to allow patients the opportunity to feel heard, understood, and accepted. Change can be hard, but within the environment of a uniquely supportive therapeutic relationship, you do not have to do it alone.

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, and WISE & Healthy Aging, working with patients across the age, gender, and 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: The Millennial generation from hook ups to marriage,” explored how technology, gender, sexuality, and family dynamics affect one’s view of relationships. I participated on a research team for four years during graduate school examining adolescent sexual health and behavior. In addition to conducting research, I assisted in co-creating and presenting workshops across the country and co-wrote an article on Sex Education in Schools for the Encyclopedia of Psychology and Gender.
I have a passion for sharing psychological research in a relatable way with the community and have been featured in online publications such as Brit + Co. on snooping and relationship communication, Singles Warehouse on romantic desire and gender differences in hook up culture, Shape.com, Los Angeles Psychological Association, and more.
