David Godot, Psy.D.

I earned my master’s degree in counseling (2009) and my doctorate in clinical psychology (2013) from Adler University in Chicago — a program focused on community psychology and family dynamics.

I approach problems systemically, and focus on working with people in transition:

  • Adolescents and young adults, especially those who are gifted and talented
  • Medical professionals working their way through school, or moving forward in their careers
  • Creatives, artists, and entrepreneurs struggling to find a balance between stress and ambition
  • Anyone searching for an identity or a deeper understanding of life

I serve as Clinical Director at the Psych Lab Psychology Center in Long Beach, CA, where I also provide psychotherapy for individuals, couples, and families. I’m certified in clinical hypnosis and in Jungian depth psychotherapy, and I use these tools to help people understand their deeper emotions and hidden motivations.

In cases where symptoms are mysterious or treatment hasn’t worked, I provide psychological testing to shed light on what’s really going on and how to manage it most effectively.

On this site, I try to offer insights into the way I work with various psychological issues. In the near future, I’m looking into offering groups for teens, parents, and trauma survivors. To discuss issues you may be facing now, call me at (562) 684-1300 or email me at drgodot@psychlab.us.
