Ginny Estupinian PhD, ABPP

Board Certified in Clinical Psychology


As your psychologist, my first and foremost concern is for you to feel understood in a safe and non-judgmental setting.   My commitment to you is that you will always feel heard and receive the very best care we can deliver. Rest assured that there isn’t an issue, personal situation, challenge, crisis, or traumatic event that is too small or too complex. As you will read below, my clinical experience has allowed me to work with a variety of people from all walks of life. Also, I have treated individuals suffering from a range of severity up to and including complex and traumatic issues.

Educational and Training Background


I graduated from Pacific Graduate School of Psychology at Palo Alto University with a doctorate in Clinical Psychology.  I also earned a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology and a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management.


I completed specialized clinical training in both health psychology and community mental health while training at Asians for Community Involvement and as a postdoctoral fellow at Santa Clara Valley Health and Hospital System.  I also had the opportunity to specialize in post-traumatic disorders and other severe trauma work while as an intern at the San Jose Veterans Administration clinic and working at Asians for Community Involvement in the Center for Torture Survivors.

Today, I continue my professional education and update my skills through full memberships in the California Psychological Association and the American Psychological Association, where I am a fellow of the trauma division.

I am Board certified in clinical psychology through the American Board of Professional Psychology and also a credentialed Health Services Psychologist as verified by the National Register of Health Service Psychologists, an independent nonprofit organization that reviewed my background for advanced education & training, thousands of hours of supervised experience, and an exemplary record of professional practice and licensure.

Furthermore, I am a full member of the Collaborative Family Healthcare Association (CFHA), an association of healthcare professionals dedicated to facilitating integrated care among various health professionals for the benefit of our patients.  Working as part of an integrated medical team in the hospital showed me how valuable this approach was to our patients.  In my private practice, I work closely and coordinate with the primary physicians, psychiatrists, and other health care professionals serving my patients.

Ginny Estupinian is a member of CFHA

Dr. Ginny Estupinian is a credential Health Service PsychologistCurrent 


began my private practice in 2011 and have currently been serving clients throughout the greater south bay.  I am licensed as a psychologist through the California Board of Psychology.


For a decade, I divide my time between my private practice and my duties as a  psychologist and neuropsychological assessor, with medical privileges, at Santa Clara Valley Health and Hospital System. However, for the last several years I have been completely focused on my private practice.


During my tenure at the hospital, I performed neuropsychological and psychological evaluations for the various outpatient clinics.  I also maintained a full individual therapy schedule which was integrated as part of a new and innovative interdisciplinary medical team. In this capacity, I have worked within the outpatient geriatrics clinic and served as part of the treatment team at Valley Homeless Healthcare Program.


My work within the hospital also allowed me to supervise and train psychology graduate interns and work as a lecturer to medical residents and staff. Working with hundreds of cases in a clinical setting over the years has provided me with a vast reservoir of knowledge and experiences that I can draw upon to more effectively use now in my practice.



As a result of my work with many bay area business owners and executives, Forbes Business Council has made me an official member of their San Francisco advisory group. In this capacity, I am able to share some of the insights from my Peak Performance program and executive coaching to help individuals improve their effectiveness.  My articles focus on the latest findings in neuroscience and psychology and their direct application to the world of business.  You can find these articles on and occasionally they will be reprinted in my blog section as they are published.


My staff and I are here to help you reach your desired goals and objectives in the best way possible.  This means that we will always put your interest above our own, and always tell you what you need to know.  Please take the next step and see for yourself what we can do for you.  You deserve to have peace of mind.

You are cordially invited to call me and discuss your situation.
