Therapist in Pasadena, California Dr Joanne Royer, PhD, LMFT

Dr Joanne Royer, PhD, LMFT

My treatment philosophy with my clients comes from the belief that we are all on a mental wellness journey at different junctures along the way. That being said, what a gift it is to come into a space that is just your own, having a place to hear yourself talk through the thoughts in your head with someone on the other side who is outside of your life circle, where you can be seen and heard and come into it just as you are.

I create that space where you and I can have a conversation that is supportive, and action-oriented, where intentions can be set to include a dose of accountability and at times a gentle kick in the pants to move things forward.

After graduating from a Liberal Arts University with a MA degree in Psychology, in 1991 I became licensed in California as a Marriage, Family Child Therapist, holding subsequent licenses in the states of OR and WA. In 2000 I was awarded a Doctorate Degree in Child Clinical Psychology with post-graduate training in Psychological and Psychoeducation Testing. Professionally I have worked directly within Residential Treatment and Inpatient facilities for children and adolescents during the first decade of my career. In the second decade of my career, I provided Clinical Leadership to non-profit mental health teams. During these past 7 years, I moved into the field of Coaching, receiving training and certification from the International Coaching Federation as a Professional Certified Coach.
