Member Spotlight

Chanda Rankin, PhD, MA, CADC II

Currently in private practice, I see adults (18+) for individual psychotherapy. In addition, I provide psychological testing and assessment for adults (18+). With 24 years of experience working in the field of mental health and addiction, I bring a
unique breadth of experience and knowledge to my work founded on a combination of exemplary and diverse professional training, employment and personal experience. I have worked with adolescents and adults in: voluntary and involuntary psychiatric hospitals; residential and outpatient centers for addiction and co-occurring disorders; public mental health; community mental health; non-profit charity for music entertainment professionals. 


I have been fortunate to have worked at: Promises, PCH, Visions, Harmony Place, Musicares, Mills College, The Wright Institute, Kaiser Hospital and St. Mary's Hospital to name a few. As a co-founder of WAAT, it has been my privilege to see the organization grow, connecting women and resources in the field of addiction.
