Dr. Gregory Canillas
Psychologist and professor Dr. Gregory Canillas, known to friends and colleagues as “Doc”, takes a “keep it real” approach to his work both with clients and in training the next generation of therapists. He will also keep it real as the newest addition to the Healthy Black Men team!
Dr. Canillas has far reaching clinical work experience, including research and teaching focused on a range of relationship issues from trauma, abuse and infidelity to conflict resolution, spirituality and self esteem. He has worked with children, adolescents, adults, students, foster parents and anyone who needed help to better understand themselves, their relationships and their place in the world. Doc’s goal is to use his considerable education and experience to help people to live their best lives.
Dr. Canillas is Co-Chair of the Commission for Youth and Children in Long Beach, California. He’s also member of the American Psychological Association, Asian American Psychological Association and Association of Black Psychologists.
With a double major in Psychology and American History from the University of California, Santa Cruz and an M.A. and Ph.D. from the California School of Professional Psychology, Doc is currently an Assistant Professor of Clinical Psychology at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology (Los Angeles campus). He is a frequent presenter at national conferences on issues such as relationship issues, family of origin issues, foster care, domestic trafficking of children, psychological treatment and ethnic minority populations and LGBTQ issues.
As a frequent contributor on podcast/radio programs, he is the author of two forthcoming books: “Sticks and Stones: Healing from Verbal Abuse” and “Cheaters: Recovering from Infidelity.”
An avid traveler, Doc has visited thirty of the fifty states and abroad to Europe, Canada, the Caribbean and Mexico.
