Noga Niv Psychology

Noga Niv, PhD
Clinical Psychologist


My career started in 1985 as a psychologist in the state of Israel, treating school children and
their families and leading Gestalt groups for professionals. 
In 1991 I moved to California and pursued a Ph.D. in clinical psychology at PGSP (Today PAU).

I was trained as a pre-doc clinical psychologist at Stanford University Counseling and
Psychological Services at Vaden Center and later as a post-doc at Kaiser Santa Clara. In both these places I also was employed as clinical psychologist post training.
My next career step was moving to a private practice in Palo Alto where I have now been
practicing since 1998.
During the years 2002-2004 I taught an annual graduate course “Practicum II” at the Pacific
Graduate School of Psychology in Palo Alto.
Between the years 2012-2016, I have served as an Adjunct Clinical Faculty at PAU,
supervising graduate students at the PAU Granowski Clinic.

Since 2000, I have served as an individual and group supervisor for Stanford clinical trainees during their year of internship.
