Dr. Jeanne Clevenger
I am a licensed clinical psychologist located in Pasadena, and a doctoral graduate of Azusa Pacific University. Early on in my professional career, I specialized in child/family psychotherapy and primarily worked with childhood mental disorders, behavioral problems, and impaired family dynamics. However, after becoming a mother myself and collaboratively working time and time again with the parents of my child clients, my passions shifted a bit. My heart was drawn to the women who had challenges mothering these children, and that expanded to all aspects of motherhood – pregnancy, fertility struggles, postpartum difficulty, and motherhood throughout all the ages. I then sought out a variety of specialized training in maternal mental health, including the Maternal Mental Health Certificate Training with Postpartum Support International. In addition, I have professional membership in Postpartum Support International, Maternal Mental Health NOW, and the Postpartum Project.
My passion – and primary role as a therapist – is to help facilitate healing, transformation, and empowerment for individuals and families in the community. I approach my clinical work with empathy, authenticity, and hopefulness. My therapeutic style is highly collaborative, flexible, and holistic, embracing an integrative approach that includes CBT, ACT, family systems, and relational psychotherapy techniques.
