Jennifer Regan, Ph.D. is a licensed clinical child and adolescent psychologist with more than 15 years of clinical and research experience in community-based, university, outpatient clinic, and hospital settings. Although she has been trained to work with families experiencing a wide variety of mental health issues, her specialty is youth with anxiety disorders. Her treatment strategies are grounded in cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and are focused on helping youth and their families achieve their short and long-term goals.
Jennifer’s interest in anxiety began by working with many of the Lumate team members on a federally-funded research study for the treatment of child anxiety disorders both as part of her undergraduate degree at the Johns Hopkins University and for two years at the New York State Psychiatric Institute at Columbia University Medical Center. As a graduate of the Clinical Psychology doctoral program at the University of California, Los Angeles, she received extensive clinical training in the Modular Approach to Treatment for Children with Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, and Conduct Problems (MATCH-ADTC) as well as Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), particularly within an intensive outpatient program for youth with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder at the Semel Institute. She also completed a year-long training program in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) at UCLA-Harbor Medical Center and gained invaluable experience working with youth with co-occurring mental health and medical issues as part of her internship at the Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago.
Beyond her own clinical training, Jennifer has acted as an Assistant Clinical Professor in the UCLA clinical psychology doctoral program providing clinical supervision to graduate students for four years. She has also supervised licensed mental health professionals at Sycamores, a nonprofit community mental health clinic, and, as part of her role there, delivered training in cognitive-behavioral practices and related mental health topics to hundreds of child and adolescent clinicians. Most recently, she was a member of the quality improvement team at the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health, supporting the implementation of evidence-based practices for youth, families, and adults with significant mental health needs. She is committed to ensuring that high-quality, evidence-based practices are available to everyone seeking care and are tailored to fit individual needs.
Jen lives in Los Angeles, CA with her husband, daughter, and their rambunctious Aussiedoodle, Scribbles. She is a lover of film, books, and music and is usually either catching up on the latest prestige TV show, novel, or listening to an alternative rock playlist. She also enjoys cooking with her family, talking long walks with Scribbles, and exploring the diverse neighborhoods of her adopted hometown.
