Hi! Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have your own therapist to talk to? Do you see yourself dealing with strong emotions that make it difficult for you to concentrate? Are you willing to make a change?

In therapy, I am here to help you create new changes in your life and am passionately interested in helping you make a better version of yourself. I have experience working with all age groups, especially young adults facing academic, professional, or relational struggles while balancing a personal life.  I have also worked with children and their families who have experienced trauma (e.g., domestic violence, abuse, and crisis). In addition, my experience extends to working with adolescents facing various challenges (e.g., acculturation, social pressures, relationship issues, and family problems). 

Areas I have worked with include: depression, anxiety, trauma, multicultural issues, relational issues, and spirituality. I am also fluent in Spanish and have experience conducting therapy in Spanish.

I am a Registered Psychological Assistant (No.PSB94023370) with the California Board of Psychology, supervised by Antoinette Brunasso, Psy.D., and am completing the final stages of my internship to earn my Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology at Fuller Theological Seminary.

Rodger Questin, Ph.D. (ABD), MBA

Psychological Assistant # PSB94023144

Welcome! Glad you’re here.

Have you reflected back on a situation and thought to yourself, "I wish I handled that better?" Do you ever wonder why you keep doing, saying, or thinking things you wanted to stop? Have you asked yourself why you're motivated by some things but not by those you are most passionate about? Do you sometimes have conflict with your religious and/or spiritual beliefs? Have you wanted to feel more alive and more connected with friends, partner, yourself, or a community? 

Together, Rodger and you will co-create a deeper understanding of you and your environment; explore the decisions you’ve made that you feel do not represent you or are not aligned with your highest inner self image or other’s image of you; co-construct resilience to conflict in order to increase self-empowerment, self-advocacy, and improve how you relate to others; uncover your patterns and themes that worked well in the past but are now working against you; and tend to your emotional world to promote healing and understanding of how emotions have affected your thoughts, behaviors, and those around you.

Rodger is passionate about client transformation; finding harmony, balance, and freedom that starts from within and extends into everyday life situations; bringing into awareness those parts of ourselves that are unrealized or unattended (i.e., your shadow, blind-spots); and creating perceptual shifts that transform problems and obstacles into valuable opportunities for growth. Rodger’s style is warm, compassionate, sincere, and supportive. He works with adult clients and couples with a wide range of mental health concerns including anxiety, depression, motivation, relationship problems, spirituality, diversity, identity, anger, communication, and job dissatisfaction. He uses an integrative approach to therapy—not only Western modalities (e.g., psychoanalytic, cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, etc.)—but also Eastern psycho-spiritual practices.

Rodger Questin is a Registered Psychological Assistant (No. PSB94023144) with the California Board of Psychology, supervised by Dr. Antoinette Brunasso, Psy.D., and is completing the final stages of his dissertation to earn his Ph.D. in clinical psychology at Pacifica Graduate Institute in Carpenteria, CA. He has worked at Cedars Sinai, The Maple Counseling Center in Beverly Hills, the Los Angeles LGBT Center, in private practice, and in drug and alcohol recovery/detox in Malibu, CA. He is looking forward to meeting you!

I am passionate about meeting my clients right where they are. Sometimes that means we are working in the heart of pain. Sometimes that means we are celebrating. It always means that are working toward healing. Together we will compassionately approach you, your relationship to yourself and others.

I have training and experience working with individual adults, Veterans, LBGTQIA identified people, groups and caregivers who have experiences with trauma, anxiety, depression and grief. Additionally, my dissertation was on resilience and self-efficacy in the face of ongoing trauma. My research aligns with my passion to work to empower my client’s sense of inner grit. I value working with the body as well as the mind, feelings as well as thoughts. I believe that an integrated experience of our whole selves creates the healing we desire.

I believe genuine authentic connection is essential in our work together. You are strong for showing up and seeking out support. We will navigate what’s going on together.

I am a Registered Psychological Assistant (No.PSB94023488) with the California Board of Psychology, Supervised by Antoinette Brunasso, Psy.D., and am completing the final stages of my internship to earn my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at Fuller Theological Seminary.
