About Dr. Liana Georgoulis
A native Angelino raised by immigrant parents, Dr. Liana developed a deep appreciation for people and community from an early age. In pursuit of an education that would allow her to help others she attended the University of California, Los Angeles where she majored in Psychology and minored in Musicology, then completed her doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology at Pepperdine University.
With her rigorous academic background and years of clinical training, Dr. Liana has had the opportunity to support hundreds of people with diverse struggles from all walks of life including war veterans at the VA, at risk foster children in inner cities, the homeless on Skid Row, victims of domestic violence and trauma, individuals afflicted with severe mental illness in psychiatric hospitals, those suffering from dementia, brain injuries and other neurological impairments, as well as high functioning celebrity clients and couples in her private practice. “I’ve learned from all of these experiences that at the end of the day we are more similar than different. Ultimately, we all want to feel safe, loved, a sense of belonging, and purpose.”
In 2012 Dr. Liana founded Coast Psychological Services, a psychology practice in Los Angeles where she and her team currently work with individuals, couples, and families struggling with various issues. Staying very current with psychological research is a top priority. Coast Psychological Services believes in providing their clients with structured, evidence-based treatments and interventions that have been proven to be effective and hopefully long lasting.
Dr. Liana is also focused on building awareness of mental health issues by expanding her reach to the public as a media consultant. She has written and hosted her own podcast and radio show on KABC, On the Couch with Dr. Liana; has been featured in articles in the Huffington Post; consulted on mental health topics with Buzzfeed; and co-authored several Wikihow articles.
