Lauren Stevenson View Specialties


Dr. Stevenson is a licensed clinical psychologist who completed her doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Azusa Pacific University. She completed an American Psychological Association (APA)-Accredited Internship at the Federal Medical Center in Boston, Massachusetts, and an APA-Accredited Post-Doctoral fellowship at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center where she received extensive training in psychological assessment and cognitive behavioral therapy. Currently, Dr. Stevenson is the director and founder of Capstone Psychological Services, which is a clinic dedicated to providing the most effective and comprehensive assessment and treatment possible. All of the psychologists working at Capstone have the training, experience, and therapeutic style necessary to help each of our clients reach their goals.
It is believed that transformation and growth is most successful when there is a foundation of comfort and trust between a client and therapist.  As such, Dr. Stevenson works hard to combine a warm and engaging therapeutic style with scientifically validated interventions. She most frequently focuses on the treatment of a wide range of anxiety, mood, and depressive disorders, including obsessive compulsive disorder, social anxiety, panic disorder, depression, and issues related to self-esteem and body image. Dr. Stevenson also has extensive specialized experience with the CBT treatment of anger control issues, and the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of substance abuse and addiction.
Psychological testing and assessment is often a necessary tool to answer specific questions, such as whether a person has an undiagnosed learning disability, ADHD, a traumatic brain injury, or specific types of memory problems. Dr. Stevenson has extensive specialized experience in psychological testing and assessments, including ADHD evaluations, learning disability evaluations, neuropsychological testing, psychoeducational evaluations (including IEE evaluations), psychosocial evaluations (i.e., pre-adoption evaluations, donor recipient evaluations) and diagnostic clarification.  
Evaluations conducted by Dr. Stevenson and her clinic emphasize  the importance of providing clarity to problems and diagnoses, identifying areas of strength and needed growth, tailoring treatment plans specific to a person's needs, and providing personalized accommodations to help people achieve success. Such accommodations can potentially be used for individualized education planning, extra time on standardized testing, and special accommodations in academic and work place settings.
Dr. Stevenson provides psychological testing and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) with children, adolescents, and adults. Common presenting problems include depression, anxiety, OCD, panic disorder, substance abuse, ADHD, and self-esteem challenges. Dr. Stevenson's practice also specializes in psychological testing, assessment, and evaluations. Dr. Stevenson enjoys working with clients from a variety of cultural backgrounds and worldviews, emphasizing the importance of creating a safe and validating environment for everyone. Dr. Stevenson strongly emphasizes the goodness of fit between a client and clinician, which is why a FREE phone consultation is provided - this will ensure that time is taken to get to know you and develop a treatment plan that is tailored to your specific needs.

Outside of work, Dr. Stevenson enjoys playing sports (especially soccer!), reading books, attempting to learn new recipes, and traveling with friends and family.
