FullSizeRenderDr. D’Angelo is a licensed clinical psychologist with offices in Encino and Torrance, California. Her specialties includes treatment of mood disorders (depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder), PTSD, trauma therapy, addictions, and dual diagnosis. Incorporating evidence-based clinical interventions along with a holistic approach that includes yoga, nutrition, meditation and trauma work, she uses an individualized approach to facilitating recovery back to wholeness. Although her theoretical orientation is largely psychodynamic, emphasizing emotional experience as key to personality functioning, she uses an integrative approach with clients, incorporating Jungian and analytical psychology, cognitive behavior therapy, and mind-body techniques to address the individual needs of each client.

Dr. D’Angelo has completed a PhD in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in depth psychology at Pacifica Graduate Institute, and earned an MA in Spiritual Psychology at University of Santa Monica. Her area of research includes using mind-body approaches in treatment of all addictive disorders. The focus of her clinical experience has been in community mental health, dual diagnosis treatment centers,  in-patient psychiatric hospital working with children, adolescents, adults and families as well as forensic settings. Areas of interest and specialty include trauma and abuse, addictions and chemical dependency, depression, anxiety disorders, PTSD, life and career transitions. She currently works with adolescent and adult clients in individual, couples and family therapy. Additionally, she contracts with state agencies and the legal system for psychological testing and disability evaluations.

Her personal philosophy is that through human connection, one can foster the encouragement needed to take courageous steps toward seeing an old pattern through a new perspective, and creating positive change. In her work with clients and families, she uses a strengths-based approach, empowering individuals to focus on their strengths, in order to discover new and more useful patterns of behavior. Believing in the inherent wisdom of the individual, therapy thus serves as a road map, illuminating the path so the client can make conscious choices.  Her attitude of respect for the shared humanity and acceptance of each client’s self-image and world-view allows for the creation of a safe, therapeutic container in each session.

In addition to individual work, Dr. D’Angelo offers intensive recovery management for clients and families of those in recovery. This includes coordinating all aspects of your recovery, from detox and rehab, to a complete, holistic aftercare plan for you and your family to ensure a successful recovery from all addictions. She offers  in-person and phone sessions. If you or a loved one is struggling with an addiction, and overwhelmed with the next steps, please contact her at rashin.dangelo@gmail.com or (310)953-7200.

Her practice also includes clinical supervision of psychological assistants at the post-doctoral level with various specializations. She serves as a core adjunct faculty at National University and currently teaches at various campuses in Southern California.
