Hello! My name is Dr. Emmanuel Zamora and I am a licensed clinical psychologist. My experience ranges the lifespan, including very young children to older adults.
My clinical practice is largely focused on single event and complex trauma, relationship development, depression (long term and episodical), anxiety, and general life dissatisfaction. I also have experience in body image issues, psychosis, bipolar, and personality disorders. My approach is tailor made for you. I am collaborative and make an effort to ensure that you feel comfortable in telling me if something is not working for you. I spend time in understanding any problematic patterns that may be keeping you stuck. I will be real with you, therapy is not easy and it’s not supposed to be. You’ll be asked to show up on time and ready to work.
Psychological and Neuropsychological Assessment
I conducted assessment with young children, adolescents, and adults. These evaluations may include ADHD, learning disorders, cognitive impairment or delay (acquired or developmental), and failure to launch in relationships, school, or career. Results of the assessment allow me to provide you recommendations for lifestyle changes, interventions/therapy, and potential accommodations at work or school. For personality or emotionally focused assessments, our task is to develop a clear story of who you are, why you operate the way you do, and what needs to change for you to live a more meaningful and satisfying life.
I earned my undergraduate degree in psychology at Sonoma State University where I focused on psychotherapy and development. I earned my master degree and doctoral degree at the Wright Institute in Berkeley. My training includes family and child work at hospitals (UCSF – San Francisco General Hospital), community based clinics (Instituto Familiar de la Raza, Mission Mental Health, WestCoast Children’s Clinic, and Jewish Family and Children’s Services), and forensic neuropsychology.
I work full time for UC Davis Medical Center in two departments. I conduct neuropsychological evaluations at the department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and psychological evaluation and intervention for the Bariatric program in the department of Surgery.
