About Viola Drancoli
Welcome to my virtual practice! I would like to tell you about myself and my work. I am a licensed clinical psychologist working online and in private practice. I hold extensive experience in the areas of sexual behavior problems and violence (assessment, treatment, consultation for relatives), acculturation (many of my clients are expats), relationship problems and forensics. I also act as a media consultant for print and broadcast and I am a certified business consultant. In my doctoral training I worked with individuals from diverse cultural backgrounds and in different communities in urban Los Angeles. My previous work settings include the Bleuler Psychotherapy Clinic in New York City, the Emergency Outreach Bureau’s Psychiatric Mobile Response Team and various forensic institutions in Los Angeles - Compton Sheriff's Dept., Sharper Future, The Walden House. My therapeutic style can be described as primarily psychodynamic, but I also like to utilize systems theory, psychoanalytic concepts, MBT, existential philosophy and attachment theory. As a member of the American Psychological Association's Division 39, I adhere to the APA code of ethics. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to: acculturation and relocation, trauma of all kinds, sexual behavior problems, sexual identity, domestic violence, identity formation, existential questions (aging, loss and grief, illness), depression and anxiety. Please drop me a message via the contact form if you feel that you would like a consultation! I am looking forward to hearing from you.
