Dr. Janine Schroth, PhD
Dr. Janine Schroth is a licensed clinical psychologist with more than 20 years of experience providing therapy to adults and couples.
Since earning her PhD from UCLA, Janine has led a distinguished career, holding a faculty appointment at UCI Medical School’s Department of Behavior & Psychiatry and Directing the Stress Reduction Program at Irvine Medical Center.
For ten years, she served as Executive Director for the Newport Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing learning and developmental resources for at-risk children, and for the last six years she has been on the Board of Straight Talk Counseling, an organization which provides clinical training, counseling, parenting classes and residential substance use treatment.
Dr. Schroth has extensive training in cognitive-therapy, positive neuroplasticity, and mindfulness-based approaches that give clients tools to enhance their well-being and resiliency. She recognizes that stress is an unavoidable reality in life, and aims to help her clients improve the way they manage stress—one of the most significant predictors of success and quality-of-life. Dr. Schroth’s expertise in neuroplasticity also directs her approach with clients who feel stuck in a rut or locked into a situation that no longer serves them. While clients may feel ready to do something different, neurobehavioral patterns that have been created over the course of our lives can make it difficult to change course. Dr. Schroth works with clients in a targeted manner to help them break out of these habits of both mind and body, helping them to develop new patterns that so they can achieve lasting success and well-being.
Dr. Schroth’s work is informed by a wide range of cutting edge research in cognitive behavioral therapy, relationship satisfaction, mindfulness training, and behavioral medicine. She is certified by the American Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress, and has completed Level 2 of advanced training in the Gottman Method of Couples Therapy. Despite her impressive resume, Dr. Schroth exudes compassion and warmth. Clients of all ages find her to be a relatable and comforting source of support and wisdom in their lives.
