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.   There,  I  worked as part of an integrated medical team in the hospital, which 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 healthcare professionals serving my patients.

At the San Jose Veterans Administration clinic and working at Asians for Community Involvement in the Center for Torture Survivors,  I had the opportunity to specialize in post-traumatic disorders and other severe trauma work as an intern.


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.





Dr. Ginny Estupinian is a credential Health Service PsychologistCurrent 


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


For a decade, I divided 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 into 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 I can draw upon to use more effectively 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.


Why People Come To See Me?


People seek therapy for a variety of reasons, and understanding these motivations can help determine if therapy is the right step for you. Often, individuals come to therapy during major life transitions, such as unemployment, divorce, or starting a new job, when they find it challenging to cope with the accompanying stressors. Therapy offers support and guidance in managing these circumstances effectively.


Additionally, people may seek therapy to address a range of issues such as low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, addictions, relationship problems, spiritual conflicts, or creative blocks. Therapy can provide a safe space for individuals to explore and address these challenges while receiving the necessary encouragement and acquiring valuable skills to navigate through them.


Moreover, therapy appeals to individuals who are ready to delve deeper into self-discovery or those who aspire to enhance their effectiveness in achieving their life goals. If you find yourself wanting to understand yourself more intimately, gain insight into your thoughts and behaviors, or strive for personal growth, therapy can be a valuable tool to support these endeavors.


Determining if therapy is right for you involves considering your readiness to meet the challenges in your life and your willingness to make changes. Reflect on your struggles, goals, and aspirations. Are you open to exploring your emotions, thoughts, and behaviors in a supportive and non-judgmental environment? Are you ready to commit to the collaborative process of therapy, where you actively engage in introspection and work toward personal transformation? If your answers suggest a readiness and willingness to embark on this journey, therapy might indeed be a suitable choice for you.


Ultimately, the decision to seek therapy is a personal one. It is essential to trust your instincts, recognize your needs, and take a step towards prioritizing your mental well-being. Consulting with a mental health professional can provide further clarity, guidance, and assistance in determining if therapy is the right path for you.
