Hi, I’m Dr. Koba, a licensed clinical psychologist and a divorce coach.
I am most passionate about helping my clients navigate their life journey.
Hi, I am Dr. Yula Koba, a licensed clinical psychologist. I specialize in working with individuals and couples. I have almost 20 years of experience providing psychotherapy and counseling in different settings. I am highly experienced and trained in working with trauma, depression, anxiety, OCD, and relational issues. I have a lot of experience working with couples and families. My style is warm, non-judgmental, and direct. I believe that together we can change the way you think, interact, and relate to others and yourself. I use different modalities that are always tailored to your needs and goals.
Common things that I work with are couples’ relationship, separation, divorce, custody issues and co-parenting as well as individual issues such as life satisfactions, low self-esteem, depression, and anxiety.
I help couples decided whether they want to work on their relationship and improve their intimacy and connection, explore such difficult question as if they want to stay together, separate or file for divorce. I also help men and women with parenting coaching and coaching them through the divorce process.
My passion for helping men and women going through divorce and separation stems from my personal experience and years of clinical experience.
My second specialization is in infertility, perinatal losses, birth trauma, pregnancy, and postpartum adjustment. I am passionate about perinatal mental health and helping women and couples going through postpartum adjustment.
I strongly believe that every person deserves the support and compassionate care during life changing events such as going through divorce and/or separation. Seeking help can be stressful and challenging, and I am committed to making you feel safe and supported through the entire process.
Your emotional experience is completely unique to you, only you know the depth of despair and the extend of pain your experience. I believe my extensive clinical experience, in-depth specialized training, and personal experience will allow me to “hold” your pain and guide our process.
In my work with women and couples I typically blend cognitive-behavioral therapy, Gottman Approach, EFT, body-oriented modality, and coaching. Cognitive-behavioral approach helps us working on reducing debilitating symptoms of depression and anxiety and help you work toward healthier mental and emotional well-being along your journey.
Somatic Experiencing is a body-oriented modality which promotes integrated approach addressing both emotional and physical symptoms. It promotes body awareness and help release trauma from the body.
I found that coaching can be effective in helping you get your needs met, including engaging in self-care, advocating for yourselves, and reaching your goals.
You Deserve Compassion and Support.
You deserve empathy and acceptance in your care. My practice is built on the notion of unconditional positive regard given to every client. I practice compassionate, non-judgmental, culturally competent approach to every person under my care.
Surround Yourself with Connection & Support
I practice non-judgmental, active listening so that you may authentically connect with your emotions and allow yourself to feel fully heard and seen. You can safely express and process your emotions and feeling with me. You do not need to go through this alone. Empowerment starts when you ask for help – find the confidence that will permeate and create positive change throughout your life.

Learning how to engage in self-care, slow down, and honor your need will enable you to improve the quality of life as you heal through the stress and trauma from your experiences. We will empower you to rebuild your confidence, find peace, and create the family life you want to create.
