Dr. Mina Guirguis
My approach to therapy varies to suit the need of the patient. I will focus on the issue and work with the patient on a solution utilizing evidence-based psychological counseling. I will help the patient identify thoughts that are causing emotional pain and hinder the patient from moving forward. It's a collaborative process between the patient and the therapist to bring on the needed changes. In working with patients with skin disorders, the focus would be to help the patient deal with the pain the skin condition is causing them.
I received my Doctor of Psychology degree in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Behavioral Medicine from the California School of Professional Psychology in 2005 and a master’s degree in Clinical Psychology in 2003. My training focused on providing psychological counseling treatment to patients with medical conditions that negatively impact their lives.
I am an active member of various vitiligo support groups and enjoy offering talks and consultations relating to psychodermatology.
