Yasi Shamtoub, Ph.D.

Appointment Locations: Santa Monica, Online


Dr. Shamtoub earned her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Alliant International University and has previously worked in private practice and addiction treatment in Malibu. She approaches each client with patience, an open mind, and emotional presence. Using an eclectic approach, she practices mindfulness-based therapies along with Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to help each client find a sense of peace and balance.

Dr. Shamtoub prides herself in being a generalist who works with a broad range of clients and issues. She holds sub-specializations in relationship issues, trauma, and addiction (in all forms, not just substance-based addiction). She believes clients feel improvement when they gain both the insight and tools necessary to break free of their bothersome thoughts and behaviors. She enjoys comedies, traveling, and the arts.
