Member Spotlight

Chanda Rankin, PhD, MA, CADC II

I am a seasoned therapist with over 25 years of experience. With a private practice in Petaluma, CA., I work with adults in individual psychotherapy, provide consultations for individuals and families and conduct psychological assessments. I specialize in Substance Use, Addiction, Recovery, Creativity and am currently pursuing certification as a Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT).  

Having trained and worked in public and private mental health, inpatient and outpatient locked and open facilities, and with children, adolescents and adults, I bring a unique and broad foundation to my work. These experiences allow me to work with a range of people and circumstances in my private practice.

As a Co-Founder and current Board Member of WAAT, it has been amazing to see WAAT grow. One of the things I love about WAAT is that it brings a diverse range of women together to learn, share experience, support each other and grow.
