Mind and More Icon

Brian T. Clemente, Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist & Founder

The Mind & More has come to be through the combination of both personal and professional experiences.   The idea of wellness & mental health has always found its way into my professional life in various ways.  Before becoming a psychologist I was as an elementary school teacher and even then I was more concerned about the minds of my students versus being focused on the curriculum.  I always felt the curriculum didn’t matter if the student didn’t believe they could learn it.  Then when I began clinical work learning how to integrate all I was learning from the books and incorporate it all into how I conceptualized working with my clients to meet their needs  was always what fascinated and challenged me.  Whether it was with children and families at Rady’s Children’s Hospital in San Diego or in the Neurology Department at UCLA and even at the maximum security California State Prison, meeting each clients need and being a part of them achieving whatever their goals are was and continues to be what fuels my passion for the field of psychology.
