Tanya Veluz

Tanya Veluz, PMHC, LMFT is a licensed marriage and family therapist (Lic #53413) and owner of Pasadena Perinatal Therapy practice in Pasadena, CA. She wanted to open and run a group practice to serve and treat parents of all backgrounds and support their  journey through parenthood.  She has had the experience of working for a large HMO where she developed treatment programs for new parents experiencing mental health struggles. In realizing there is much more work to be done to support new parents, the goal for this practice is to offer clients access to highly trained professionals who truly care and are invested in seeing clients thrive during what can be a vulnerable and sometimes traumatic period of life. She works as a team member with all therapists to ensure clients get the best possible care using Feedback Informed Treatment (FIT).
