Emily Maynard, PhD

Behavioral Health
Bridge Clinic

As a clinical psychologist, I choose to work at Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics because I enjoy working with patients from all backgrounds. I learn so much from my patients! I am also happy to work at a place where I can use my Spanish language skills to the benefit of my patients. Es un placer servirles. As a therapist I am structured, but warm; non-nonsense, but compassionate. Many times patients come to me who have never talked to a psychologist before, and I love being that person to introduce mental health care to my patients.
