Parent with PRIDE is a private psychotherapy practice centrally located in Costa Mesa, CA within walking distance from Orange Coast College (OCC). Conveniently located near the 405 freeway and serving Costa Mesa and its neighboring cities, including Newport Beach, Huntington Beach, Fountain Valley, Santa Ana, and Irvine. Counseling services are provided in-person and/or via telehealth (phone/video visits available for residents throughout California). Telehealth available for Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts members.
Parent with PRIDE takes an individualized, whole person approach to identify the right plan to address the challenges that you identify. With the right tools, teens and adults can begin to alleviate some of their stress, enhance their quality of life, and improve their relationships.
Whether it’s adjusting to high school, new or different social groups, or figuring out life after graduation, we can help you de-stress, as well as cope with and find solutions to the pressures of school tasks, social expectations, and demands of becoming a young adult.
“Adulting” is hard. The responsibilities that come with it can be daunting. We can help you come up with life goals, help alleviate the state of overwhelm, and balance the push-and-pull of coming into your own while meeting family and societal expectations.
Issues of fertility, miscarriages, infant loss, adjusting to new parenthood, depression during pregnancy, and postpartum depression are all struggles that can be hard to share with others. We can provide a safe place to talk about all of these things that are such valid concerns in life.
American Author, Gretchen Rubin, once said: “The days are long, but the years are short.” When it comes to parenthood, life can come at you fast. In the blink of an eye, your newborn is transitioning to an infant, toddler, child, then teen. We can help you figure out how to adjust your parenting style at these different stages of life.
My name is Jen Catabas and I co-founded Parent with PRIDE with my colleague, Aja Bryant, LCSW. Our ultimate goal has always been to help individuals lead happy, healthy lives and to help parents work smarter and not harder when it comes to raising their children. Aja has moved on to fulfill other aspirations, but the goals that have been the foundation for Parent with PRIDE will always remain the same.
I received my Master's degree in Clinical Psychology with an Emphasis in Marriage & Family Therapy at Pepperdine University's Irvine Graduate Campus in 2005. I am a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist and Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor with over 18 years of experience working with various populations, including adults in recovery from alcohol/drug addiction, women's issues, grief/loss, anxiety, depression, PTSD, as well as issues in adolescence, including bullying, peer pressure, ADHD, and adolescent depression and anxiety. I am also dedicated in helping individuals survive & thrive after sexual, emotional, or physical abuse.
I look forward to meeting with you and working together to improve your peace of mind and well-being.
