Alina Kurland, PsyD, PMH-C


About me

Whether you know exactly what you’d like to change, or you aren’t sure where to start, I know this is a big step and I’m ready to meet you where you’re at. I am certified in perinatal mental health and love working with women who are navigating pregnancy, the postpartum period, infertility, birth trauma, PMDD, or other women’s wellness concerns. I also treat depression, anxiety, trauma, and binge eating in people from all walks of life. My goal is to team up with you to help you make meaningful and lasting change, according to your own vision for your life. 

In order to do so, I take an evidence-based approach to psychotherapy. I start with empirically supported treatments like CBT, ACT, and DBT, and work with you to best adapt them to your unique symptoms and goals. Together, we monitor progress and adjust as needed to make sure therapy is working for you. My approach to therapy also includes humor, authenticity, and a sense of common humanity – I believe we are all trying our best with the struggles of life, and we can also grow our skills to manage them.

Dr. Kurland obtained her degree from the PGSP-Stanford Psy.D. consortium. She completed her predoctoral internship at the Loma Linda VA Medical Center, and her postdoctoral fellowship at the VA Palo Alto Healthcare System, with a focus on treating complex trauma. Dr. Kurland is certified in perinatal mental health and has additional training in working with reproductive trauma, infertility, and other women’s wellness concerns. In addition to her clinical work, Dr. Kurland holds the Training Director position at Peninsula Behavioral Health, and serves on the Board of Directors for the California chapter of Postpartum Support International.
