About Stephanie Adams Mendez
Hi there! I specialize in empowering kids, teens, young adults, and parents to grow stronger individually and together. I lift up parents through therapy, coaching, education, and advocacy. I challenge kids and teens to learn the skills they need to live the lives they want. Then, I work with the family to bring everyone closer together. I also work with young adults to help them explore themselves, remove emotional barriers, and fully live their truth.
I’m a California licensed Clinical Psychologist (PSY31678) and Nationally Certified School Psychologist (NCSP) based in Los Angeles, CA. I have provided therapy, behavior, and assessment services to children and families across school, community mental health, and hospital settings for 8+ years. I utilize my combined Ph.D. Counseling, Clinical, and School Psychology training from University of California, Santa Barbara to empower and bridge the gap between families, schools, and health providers.
