Based in Los Angeles, Dr. Amin’s practice was established to provide culturally competent mental health services for women of color (WOC). With a keen awareness of the many barriers WOC 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 women 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 area 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 10 years with the VA. 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.

At the national level, Dr. Amin has been actively involved with the Asian American Psychological Association (AAPA) since 2008 and currently serves as their President-Elect.
