Professional statement

Welcome! I’m Dr. Veronika Castillo, a Licensed Clinical Psychologist specializing in anxiety. I have been working in the mental health & wellness field since 2011. You can learn more about me and my practice on my website, dr-castillo [.] com.

Today, I offer both in person therapy to those near Paso Robles and remote therapy to residents of California and Florida. Distance is not a barrier to great relationships or meaningful therapeutic change.

While I work with individuals from all walks of life, much of my care is focused on anxiety in high-drive individuals. Many of my clients have never been in therapy before, and most arrive feeling overwhelmed or stuck. I’ve been in your shoes and I can help!

Reaching out is the best first step towards a better life.

Message to clients

I believe in empowering and strength-based approaches that highlight resilience. Our capacity to grow through ANY experience is a given, but having the right formula of time, space, and support can make a real difference in your journey.

My training reflects a professional commitment to an in-depth understanding of childhood development, the role of key relationships, personality features, recurrent themes... the impacts of trauma, transition, uprooting and re-rooting in new homes and new ways of being in the world.

In therapy, all of this is made simple :)

Outside of my private clinical practice, I provide therapy to military members (including veterans, spouses, and children) through the Bahia Health clinic in San Diego and am on the Teaching Faculty at the Wright Institute in Los Angeles, where I love to help guide the next generation of therapists.

Anxiety - Anxiety in high-functioning individuals is my specialty. If you are not used to seeking help but feel it's time you did; you are in the right place! Many of my clients are coming to therapy for the very first time.

Holistic Mental Health - Holistic mental health emphasizes the mind, body, and spirit in equal proportion. Well-being is more of a rhythm than a set of rules. We work together to understand what is best for you.

Physicians, Military, First Responders - High-drive professions have an impact on their members and sometimes their families as well. These are communities that I am personally familiar with and have been connected to throughout my life.

Caring for the Caregivers - If you are in the helping professions and feeling overwhelmed, please reach out! I can help you feel like yourself again.
