Dr. Dawn DiRaimondo Clinical Psychologist, Sacramento


Feeling connected and comfortable with your therapist is an essential part of treatment and healing.

Using a relational approach, I try to create an environment that helps people work on deeply personal and challenging issues.

My particular areas of interest and experience include grief and loss, depression, anxiety, ADHD, adolescent and parenting issues, relationships and identity/sexuality issues. I work with adolescents (15+), young adults and adults.

My therapeutic orientation is primarily psychodynamic and attachment theory, meaning I believe your upbringing impacts who you are and possibly the relationship dynamics in your life currently. With this said, I also integrate other theories and techniques, such as solution-focused and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) if I feel that will be most helpful to someone as well.
