Dr. Bonilla's fellowship Included training in Interpersonal Therapy, a particular type of psychotherapy that fits very well to people who are grieving and those suffering times of transition.In 2008, Dr. Bonilla began working at Sutter Center for Psychiatry in Sacramento treating adults and older adults who needed to be hospitalized.

Her contributions to the hospital and her patients were recognized with the James Margolis Award of Excellence in Clinical Practice in 2010.

Called and made an appointment in October for December. I am having severe anxiety issues that affect my ability to work. Her office calls at the beginning of December to reschedule. Then a week before the appointment they call and cancel. They say the doctor is overwhelmed with emergencies and cannot see a new patient. I guess my suffering doesn't matter after a two month wait. Then they tried to give me a referral to a doctor over an hours drive in another county. Merry Christmas :(

Dr. Bonilla is the best. She is a very knowledgeable doctor and explains things clearly, until I really understand. She is very easy to be open with and she lets me participate in decision making. She always holds out hope. I would recommend her to everyone. The office staff is great also- so friendly and helpful.

I highly recommend Dr. Bonilla for all your psychiatry needs. She is very professional, intelligent, and she truly cares about you and your mental health. I truly blessed to have had the experience with her. I had several other Dr.'s prior to locating Dr. Bonilla with not much success and she completely healed me. I see her on regular basis and she truly listens, cares and is sincere. You could not find a better Dr, than her!!
