Professional statement

Based in Los Angeles, Dr. Amin’s practice was established to provide culturally competent mental health services for people of color (POC). With a keen awareness of the many barriers POC face when looking for quality mental health treatment, Dr. Amin has strived to create a space that is affirming and inclusive of her clients’ lived experiences and their intersecting identities.

Dr. Amin has found joy in helping clients realize their inner strengths and develop effective tools to enhance their emotional health, allowing them to rise above the social and cultural pressures of our society. Many of Dr. Amin’s clients aspire to gain a greater understanding of who they are, find purpose in career, family, and relationships, and achieve a lasting sense of confidence and fulfillment.

Dr. Amin obtained her Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from Southern Illinois University, Carbondale. She has received extensive training in the areas of behavioral medicine, social justice, and evidence-based treatments for depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Drawing from the humanistic and existential orientations, Dr. Amin uses a strengths-based approach to empower her clients and help them live a purposeful life.

Outside of private practice, Dr. Amin has built a career spanning 13 years with the Department of Veterans Affairs. She is on staff at the West Los Angeles VA Medical Center where she treats military Veterans in the Tele-Mental Health Clinic. In addition to clinical work, Dr. Amin enjoys teaching and training psychology trainees, medical residents, and a range of healthcare professionals about the psychotherapy process. She holds an appointment as a Health Sciences Assistant Clinical Professor with UCLA’s David Geffen School of Medicine. At the national level, Dr. Amin has been actively involved with the Asian American Psychological Association (AAPA) since 2007 and recently completed her term as the first South Asian President (2022-2024).


Message to clients

“Our feelings are our most genuine paths to knowledge.” - Audre Lorde

No matter the obstacle, there can be great power in harnessing our emotions and using them to navigate our journey in life. My work focuses on helping people fully connect with their emotions, manage the ups and downs of everyday life, and ultimately, stay aligned with their values and ambitions. I use techniques backed by research, in combination with an understanding of your unique attributes, to develop a tailored plan for reaching your goals. My training in behavioral medicine also ensures that we acknowledge and incorporate the mind-body connection into our work together. This may involve making changes to improve sleep, building awareness of how stress impacts us physically, finding balance through mindfulness exercises, or simply talking things out. If you have been thinking about making a change or feel unsure of how to move forward in your life, I invite you to reach out and see if this might be a good fit for you.
