Between the Self and Others

Dr. Venus Nicolino Builds Bridges With Empathy

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 2, 2007 -- Dr. Venus Nicolino isn't sanctimonious about her practice and her take on the world, but her convictions and passion regarding empathy, the process of emotional resonance and the ability to feel what another person is feeling, are nothing less than saintly. With a new office in Beverly Hills, her private practice offers an alternative kind of therapy that is relationship-centered -- the relationship with oneself and humanity.

Having received a Master's degree in Counseling Psychology from New York University, a Master's in Clinical Psychology and her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at the California School of Professional Psychology (widely regarded as one of the top programs for advanced degrees in psychology in the United States), Dr. Nicolino embodies a careful mixture of intelligence, insight, visionary spirit, and common sense.

Practicing a combination of behaviorism, psychodynamic, and humanistic theory, her work focuses on taking one's attention off the self and placing it selflessly onto others -- an awareness of oneself in the context of other people. Essentially, it is the intellectual identification with, or vicarious experiencing of the feelings, thoughts, or attitudes of another.

Providing psychological services to adolescents and adults (with a particular emphasis on depression, anxiety, life transition, trauma, and grief), Dr. Nicolino's deep commitment toward her work and genuine desire to help others continues to create astounding results.

This spring her doctoral dissertation on "The Relationship between War, Racism, Islamophobia and Religious Dogmatism," which garnered her significant recognition in the field of peace and political psychology, is being published in an abridged version.
