Dr. Christine Warren earned her PsyD in clinical psychology with an emphasis in family psychology from Azusa Pacific University in 2019. Her research, based in Nairobi, Kenya, focused on the short- and long-term effects of child abuse and neglect. This led to the creation of a training to educate caregivers on effective ways of shaping behaviors using developmentally appropriate and culturally sensitive disciplinary methods. Dr. Warren completed her APA-accredited internship at Dallas VA Medical Center, where she developed a strong foundation in treating diverse presentations and specifically discovered her passion for working with older adults and individuals with concerns related to life transitions, death, and dying. During her postdoctoral fellowship in the Women’s Mental Health Center at VA Long Beach Health Care System, Dr. Warren received specialized training in gender-specific needs and trauma-focused treatments. Dr. Warren is committed to delivering high quality, evidence-based treatment. She is extensively trained in CBT, DBT, PE, CPT, ACT, and CBASP. She is also certified in CBT by the Academy of Cognitive Therapy. Her clinical interests include treating post-traumatic stress, depression, grief, anxiety, emotion dysregulation, and relationship problems. Dr. Warren collaborates with clients to understand their experiences within the context of their unique biological, cultural, and societal systems. She is passionate about helping individuals live empowered, authentic, meaningful lives aligned with their values. Dr. Warren sees adults, adolescents, and families in the Torrance, Newport Beach, and Beverly Hills offices.
