Psychologist joins team at Adventist Health Medical Office – Oakhurst East

News Oakhurst – Patients in Oakhurst and the surrounding foothill communities will now have an additional resource to help with their mental health needs. Adventist Health Medical Office – Oakhurst East is pleased to announce the addition of psychologist Robin Sjostrand, PhD, to its behavioral health team. With more than nine years of experience caring for patients, Sjostrand treats conditions such as depression, anxiety, anger management, substance abuse, relationship issues and more.
Sjostrand earned her Doctor of Philosophy in clinical psychology and Master of Science in psychology from Walden University in Minneapolis, Minnesota, after obtaining her Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from National University in Fresno. She completed an internship in clinical psychology at Valley Teen Ranch in Fresno and a post-doctoral fellowship at Tarzana Treatment Centers in Tarzana. A member of the American Psychological Association, Sjostrand believes in helping every patient achieve their happiest lives.
“I love being able to help people learn the skills they need to lead happier and more fulfilling lives,” says Sjostrand. “I believe life is a precious gift, and while it does come with trials and hardships, it also comes with incredible joys that feed our soul.”
A native of California, Sjostrand has lived in Oakhurst for 30 years. When not caring for patients, she enjoys spending time with her three adult children and her Staffordshire terrier and quilting with friends. She is inspired by the “incredible vistas” of the Sierra Nevada and the many lakes and trails of Central California.
Sjostrand is accepting new patients and may be reached at Adventist Health Medical Office – Oakhurst East, located at 49063 Road 426, #C, in Oakhurst. More information and appointments are available by calling 559-642-1500.
