Professional statement

Dr. Sharon Tan is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist with offices in Pasadena and Brea, CA. She also welcomes clients for remote video sessions. Clients often see Dr. Tan for a range of issues, including anxiety, depression, relationship concerns, grief and loss, chronic health concerns, and trauma. Dr. Tan is also passionate about providing compassionate, empowering care to women who are expecting or first-time parents.

Dr. Tan strives to cultivate a safe place where clients are able to explore the issues that brought them in, as well as how prior experiences may be shaping their perspective as they enter new life stages. She integrates various modalities, including the skills-based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) as well as arts and expressive therapies.

In her work with perinatal clients, Dr. Tan understands the importance of having a secure place where women are able to explore the multifaceted emotions of motherhood. She also oversees support groups for new or pregnant mothers, including a group hosted through Zoom to continue providing connection throughout Coronavirus.

In addition to her private practice, Dr Tan also works in a hospital setting at Miller Children's and Women's Hospital in the Pediatric Palliative Care team. She is also part of a multidisciplinary team on a program supporting women with high risk pregnancies.
