Jennifer Schere

Psychologist, Focused on Moms

Dr. Schere is a licensed clinical psychologist who specializes in parent-child attachment, parenting and women’s issues throughout the life cycle. Dr. Schere has been in private practice in Banker’s Hill since 1998, working with women, couples and families managing familial relationships, complicated pregnancies and reproductive issues. Her clinical work with women throughout the perinatal period led to the development of M.O.M., a curriculum written to support expectant and new moms in their transition to motherhood. The program serves as a preventative measure for postpartum mood and anxiety disorders. Dr. Schere is a member of the Postpartum Health Alliance and is devoted to helping women strengthen their maternal identity so that they, as well as their families, can experience the greatest amount of personal fulfillment during this significant time.

She is the author of “The Role of Creative Complexity in Psychotherapy” published in the Austrian Journal Psychologie in Osterreich and co-author of “Psychotherapy and the Young Child” published in Early Childhood Education. Dr. Schere is an active member of the San Diego Arts Community and has served as a Board Member for Sushi Performance and Visual Art.
