Dr. Clara I. Aparicio

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Pasadena, CA


"Life's journey was never meant to be traveled alone. Our experiences, life's highs and lows, are best lived in communion with others."

Therapy is a journey towards discovering a healthy, productive, and enjoyable state of being. Our focus will be on identifying your inner-strengths, build upon existing tools, and discovering new techniques to help improve your quality of life.

My clinical work includes working with children and adolescents, adults and older adults, couples and families. I specialize in treating mood disorders, trauma, chronic pain management, acculturation issues, immigration psychological evaluations, anger management, life transitions, relationship issues, grief and loss.

I use a strength-based approach in therapy. I am mindful of cultural and acculturation issues, family dynamics, spiritual, social-economic, and medical factors that contribute to mental health conditions. If you experience difficulties in your day-to-day life, contact me. Together we can work towards helping you navigate through those hardships.
