Devonna Jacobs, Psy.D.
Staff Psychologist, Coordinator of Services for LGBTQ Students
I was born and raised in Oakland, Ca. I completed my Undergraduate studies at Saint Mary’s College of California, studying Child/Adolescent Psychology. Shortly after I went on to complete my Masters Degree and Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at the Wright Institute in Berkeley, Ca. My pre and post doc training specialized in community mental health and healing focused on serving marginalized communities, foster youth, LGBTQ+ youth, providing trauma informed and culturally accountable care. My clinical interests include working with LGBTQ+ individuals and couples, systemic and racial oppression, identity development, experiences of trauma and substance abuse. My love for advocacy, mental health, and serving communities that are often overlooked or ignored fuels my work. I believe that people do not or survive solely on their own. We need people along our journey to support us, uplift us, and help us grow and thrive to achieve wellness in the arena of mental health.
When I am not working I enjoy baking, reading, and doing escape rooms.
