Psychologist and Therapist in Ventura, California, Erin Haven, PhD

Erin Haven, PhD

I believe that relationships are central to the human experience. As we grow, our early interactions with others – combined with our biology and learning experiences – set the foundation for how we view ourselves and the world around us. And while those early relationships and experiences shape us, they do not have to define us. Sometimes we need someone to come alongside and support us in better understanding ourselves and reaching our goals, whether those may be to work through trauma, learn more effective coping strategies for managing overwhelming emotions, improve relationships with friends and family, overcome roadblocks to educational success, or increase self-esteem. I have found it incredibly rewarding to support youth as they grow, develop their identity, and move forward into adulthood.

I received my PhD in clinical psychology from Seattle Pacific University. I completed my doctoral internship at Prairie View, Inc and University of Kansas, Department of Psychiatry, which included residential and outpatient treatment for youth. I have had extensive experience providing individual, group, and family therapy to children and adolescents with trauma and severe emotional and behavioral disorders within residential and non-public school settings at Casa Pacifica Centers for Children and Families. I enjoy working with a wide variety of clinical issues, including but not limited to anxiety, depression, emotional and/or behavioral dysregulation, social difficulties, trauma, self-injury, educational challenges, and parent-child relational problems. Although I believe it is important to tailor treatment to the unique needs of each youth and family, I often incorporate evidence-based practices (e.g., Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy).
