Licensed Clinical Psychologist
My name is Dr. Marcella Kreysa
I am a bilingual, bicultural Latina psychologist who has been specializing in therapeutic work with children, adolescents, adults and families for over 11 years in both English and Spanish.
I earned my Masters Degree in Counseling Psychology from National University in 2011. Afterwards, I went on to earn my Doctorate Degree in Clinical Psychology from John F. Kennedy University in 2016.
I have had the pleasure of working in a variety of settings throughout my training
including; community mental health clinics in Sacramento and throughout the bay area. Some of these settings include several different schools ranging from preschools to high schools; in addition to WestCoast Children's Clinic; Contra Costa's First 5 programs; San Mateo's Juvenile hall; Alameda County's receiving home; Sutter Center for Psychiatry; and now Private Practice.
I have focused on helping distressed people find strength and resilience after experiencing difficulties including trauma, loss, and relational disturbances.
I am accredited in Triple P, a positive parenting framework to help parents and children find more balance and joy in their lives. This training grants me the opportunity to work with parents to build a stronger connection and understanding of their child, while helping to establish a structure that fits the family's needs.
In addition to my clinical work, I supervise and train doctoral psychology students and also sometimes serve as an adjunct professor for graduate level students. I offer trainings on a variety of topics to help share my knowledge and experience with those who are interested in continuing to learn and grow.
I am also a Past President of the Sacramento Valley Psychological Association and have been involved with the planning and organizing of various community events in order to continue supporting our mental community to provide the best care to our clients.
My office is located across from McKinley Park in Midtown town area of Sacramento, California.
