Dr. Tanika Gayle

Psychologist , PsyD

(951) 878-0665
The core of my work is to help people operate from the best in themselves as an individual and in relationship with others. My work helps individuals develop a state of balance by increasing ones true, solid sense of self and the ability to take care of self while working through difficulties that life throws at you. Key tools in accomplishing this is by helping individuals self confront and self validate and stay true to ones' integrity.
I work with individuals dealing with everyday life stressors, individuals discovering their sense of identity, and with various discomforts such as depression, anxiety, relationship issues, and family issues. I have a special interest in treating individuals, families, couples, and intimacy issues which includes sex therapy.
In addition to providing therapy, I supervise doctorate Interns for the County of Riverside and I teach the following doctorate level courses; Sex Therapy, Advanced Psychopathology, Human Developement, Alternative Family Therapy, and Ethics. My various roles keep me current with the newest research, treatment approaches, and changes in the field of psychology.
