Emily Pavlisin, Psy.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist


About Me

Hello, and welcome. My name is Dr. Emily Pavlisin and I am a Bay Area based licensed clinical psychologist. I am currently serving adults throughout the state of California via telehealth.


​​Finding the right therapist for you can feel daunting, especially because this journey often begins at a time when we feel most vulnerable. Maybe you haven't been feeling quite like yourself lately, or maybe you are just feeling stuck. Perhaps you could use support navigating a scary change in your life, or better understanding yourself or your relationships. You may be feeling overwhelmed adjusting to pregnancy or parenthood, or wondering what it means to be a good enough parent in a world full of expectations. Whatever brought you to this page today, know that you have already taken a brave step. ​In our work together, I will meet you where you are with  warmth, compassion, and acceptance. 


My goal is to empower you with meaningful insight and practical tools for growth. I believe that true and lasting change occurs when we treat the whole person, so we will examine your experiences within your unique biological, social, and cultural contexts. My goal is to guide you to a place in which you feel more present and engaged with what you value most in life.​


I invite you to schedule a free 15-minute consultation to get a better sense of how I work and determine if we might be a good fit to work together.
