Dr. Karyn Sue Goldberg-Boltz PH.D.


2930 Camino Diablo Suite 200 Walnut Creek CA, 94597



I am grateful to have discovered my calling early in life, and for the opportunities to build a strong foundation of academic and clinical training. I started my career at Childrens Hospital, S.F., developing a psychoanalytic training program. In 1990, I opened a practice in Walnut Creek, specializing in child, adolescent, adult and family diagnostics and psychotherapy. Thanks to the wonderful patients with whom I have had the privilege of working, and the confidence of referring physicians and peers, the practice has flourished for 25 years. My work continues to evolve as personal and professional experience deepens my compassion, spirituality and understanding of life's challenges and how to overcome them.
