Affiliation: Alliant International University, California School for Professional Psychology, California
Place of Birth: Los Angeles, CA, USA
Biography: Clinician trained in multiple therapeutic disciplines with 12+ years of experience providing comprehensive clinical services to at-risk youth, adults, and families from diverse backgrounds. Specialties in practice and research include individual, group, and family therapy with vulnerable population adolescents and adults. I have also published clinically-focused research in a multitude of peer-reviewed sources. I am most interested in doing clinical work and training staff to do clinical work that betters the lives of suffering individuals in spite of the odds against them. Developing areas of expertise: Individual and family therapy, adolescents, substance abuse, case management, crisis intervention, severe and chronic mental illness, and treating sexual disorders.
Audience: Intended for clinical trainees in masters programs, primarily social work and psychology. Universities and state universities that offer clinically-related education and training will be most interested in this text. In particular, this text may be of interest to field / practicum instructors, who could essentially teach directly out of it and assign the discussion questions for homework. In essence, sales may come heavily from faculty orders.
