Dr. Elizabeth Ramquist specializes in treating adults and adolescents who want to pursue a life of health and psychological wellness. In addition to working with people who desire internal and relational growth, for the past 15 years Dr. Ramquist has been working with people who experienced trauma in their childhood or more recently as adults. She is a Clinical Psychologist in California and Indiana and a member of the American Psychological Association, Division 56: Trauma Psychology.
Dr. Ramquist completed her predoctoral training in PTSD at the VA. There, she worked with combat veterans from the Vietnam conflict, Operation Iraqi Freedom, and Operation Enduring Freedom. She went on to practice as a Staff Psychologist at the University of Notre Dame, providing treatment to individuals with a breadth of concerns, including those who experienced war trauma, traumatic death of a loved one, sexual and physical violence, and childhood abuse and neglect.
She has set up her thriving practice in the Santa Clarita Valley, the northernmost part of Los Angeles County. There, she works with adults and adolescents in issues of trauma, grief, mood disorders, and women's issues.
Dr. Ramquist works collaboratively with her patients to provide interventions that are evidence-based (i.e., scientifically proven to work well with people who have had similar difficulties in life). She has specialized training and certification in Cognitive Processing Therapy and has seen life-giving changes in her patients through utilizing this technique with combat veterans, witnesses of war crimes, and victims of assault and rape.
In addition to practicing clinical psychology, Dr. Ramquist enjoys teaching undergraduates and graduates. She currently is an Associate Adjunct Professor at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology, and has taught undergraduate and graduate psychology courses at Indiana University, the University of Notre Dame, and Biola University.
