Meet John Grienenberger, PhD

I'm John Grienenberger. I'm a psychologist and an attachment researcher and I'm the Co-Executive Director of the Center for Reflective Parenting in Los Angeles. At the center, we’re involved in training of mental health professionals and parent educators and direct service to parents where we provide groups focusing on helping parents to develop reflective and mindful ways and approaches to parenting. I'm also in private practice in West Los Angeles where I see children and adults of all ages. I'm a father. I have two children. My daughter is 11 years old and my son is 8. I have a number of interests – some with my family. I like everything to do with the outdoors so this summer we went on backpacking trip in Yosemite which was terrific. I also enjoy snowboarding and hiking and mountain biking.
