Dr. Mona Kumar is a clinical psychologist specializing in individual and couples therapy. Dr. Kumar's clients are typically young professionals seeking personal growth and fulfillment. They may be struggling in their relationships, questioning their chosen career path, or working on overcoming unresolved trauma from their past.
Dr. Kumar believes that our responses to situations often feel limited by our experiences and conditioning. By recognizing the conscious and unconscious elements that have influenced us we become not only aware of the impact of our past but also free to start anew.
Dr. Kumar has over 20 years of experience including advanced training in psychodynamic approaches to treatment. In addition to therapy, Dr. Kumar provides clinical supervision to doctoral interns. Dr. Kumar is available in person in Pasadena or virtually throughout California.
