Dr. Tanika Gayle
Clinical Psychologist-PSY 23903
I am a licensed psychologist in California (CA PSY 23903). I completed my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (Psy.D) degree at the California School of Professional Psychology at Alliant International University, Los Angeles (APA accredited) and received my Master of Social Work (MSW) degree from Loyola University, Chicago. I also have advanced training in Couples and Family Psychology with a specialization in Sex, Intimacy, and Relationships.
The core of my work is to help people operate from the best in themselves as an individual and in relationship with others. My work helps individuals develop a state of balance by increasing ones true, solid sense of self and the ability to take care of self while working through difficulties that life throws at you. Key tools in accomplishing this is by helping individuals self confront and self validate and stay true to ones' integrity. I work with individuals dealing with everyday life stressors, individuals discovering their sense of identity, and with various discomforts such as depression, anxiety, relationship issues, and family issues. I have a special interest in treating individuals, families, couples, and intimacy issues which includes sex therapy.
I supervise doctorate Interns for the County of Riverside and I taught the following doctorate level courses; Sex Therapy, Advanced Psychopathology, Human Development, Alternative Family Therapy, and Ethics. My various roles keep me current with the newest research, treatment approaches, and changes in the field of psychology.
In addition to providing therapy, being the owner/clinical director of Collaborative Psychology Group, I currently am the program manager and primary supervisor for Family Support Services at the Inland Empire Ronald McDonald House. It is a practicum training site for marriage and family therapist, social work and psychology doctorate students.
