Parent with PRIDE is a private psychotherapy practice centrally located in Costa Mesa, CA. We support children and their families in forming lasting bonds and enriching relationships with one another. The inspiration for the name comes from the PRIDE skills developed by Sheila Eyberg, PhD, ABPP from the University of Florida as part of Parent-Child Interaction Therapy, where P stands for Praise, R for Reflect, I for Imitate, D for Describe, and E for Enjoy (or Enthusiasm).
Mission Statement: Helping children & families live their best lives.
Parent with PRIDE takes an individualized, whole child approach to identify the right plan to address the challenges that you and/or your family identifies. With the right tools, children and adults can begin to alleviate some of their stress, enhance their quality of life, and improve their relationships

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 children 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 14 years of experience working with various populations, including adults in recovery from alcohol/drug addiction, women's issues, anxiety, depression, PTSD, as well as childhood issues, including bullying, peer pressure, ADHD, and disruptive behavior. I am also dedicated in helping individuals survive & thrive after sexual, emotional, or physical abuse.
As a certified Parent-Child Interaction Therapy provider with training from the University of California, Davis and ChildNet Youth and Family Services, I have the experience, passion, and background in helping parents and their children re-connect, improve each child's behavior, and give each parent and child an opportunity to gain a strong, long-lasting relationship. I look forward to meeting with you and working together to improve your peace of mind and well-being.
