Dr. Janina Scarlet, PhD


About Me

Do you often feel disconnected from others? Do you pretend to be “fine” while you’re actually struggling on the inside? Do you have a hard time managing your symptoms? I understand your pain. I specialize in working with people with trauma and PTSD, including assault, physical and emotional abuse, bullying, neglect, abandonment, and narcissistic abuse. I also treat grief, burnout, and stress. I have many years of experience working with mental health providers and other healthcare professionals. I am a LGBTQIA-affirming provider, as well as a body positivity provider, and I offer neurodiversity-affirming care.

Education & Experience

As a licensed clinical psychologist, I offer Telehealth sessions to adult clients all over California and Nevada. To assist you, I use evidence-based practices, such as cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, cognitive processing therapy, and EMDR. I also use Superhero Therapy to help you become your own version of a superhero in real life (IRL).
