Individual and Group Therapist
Dr. Nina Nguyen is a licensed clinical psychologist in the state of California. She obtained her doctoral and master’s degree in clinical psychology with a focus on family and couples therapy from the California School of Professional Psychology.

Her pre-doctoral training was completed at Metropolitan State Hospital, Kaiser Permanente, and AIDS Project Los Angeles. She completed her bachelor’s degree at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
Dr. Nguyen provides psychodynamic psychotherapy for adolescents, adults, couple’s and family. She believes through the process of therapy, clients can learn to recognize how unhealthy patterns can have a negative impact on their lives and alternatively, replace them with more adaptable ones so that they can begin to make lasting changes. She hopes to provide a safe space for this process to occur and for clients to feel supported in their collaboration. Her areas of specialty include women’s issues, mood disorders, relationship issues, parenting, and work-life balance. In addition to working at PCH, Dr. Nguyen is employed as a school psychologist at St. Rita Catholic School assisting students, teachers, and parents on behavioral problems and academic difficulties. She serves as a board member for the San Gabriel Valley Psychological Association and Rose City Counseling Center. Dr. Nguyen maintains a private practice in Pasadena, California.
