Clinical Consultation and Training

My passion for my work extends to helping other professionals in the field to find their own voice and talents within this very difficult work.  I have acted as field liason for UCLA, USC and Cal State Long Beach, provided clinical supervision for master's and BA level staff, and have made it a personal and professional focus to support those around me.  

 

As a person of color, I strongly believe in the importance of integrating the whole person, in context of their inter-secionalities and the social system, into one's clinical work.  This involves creating space for personal reflection, empathy, insight and empowerment.  

 

I direct the Westside Domestic Violence Network, which networks across the entire system of care including law enforcement, child welfare and mental health.  Because of my role, I am familiar with a wide-array of systems and community resources.  Often, I am able to connect other professionals with each other to benefit and strengthen the field.  

 

Also, I have managed and worked in many different programs such as:

  • school settings

  • shelter-based programs

  • residential treatment

  • health care and hospital

  • outpatient mental health clinics

  • crisis response and drop in centers

  • diversion programs

  • substance abuse treatment

  • early childhood education

  • home visiting and field-based work

Consultation Services Offered

Clinical consultation and professional development can be offered a number of ways:

  • Individual clinical supervision

  • Group supervision (on-site and off-site)

  • Intern training

  • One-time professional development consultation

I currently offer training services to support professionals in the social service field as well as providing on-site consultation and capacity-building services.  Through my work as the director of the Westside Domestic Violence Network, I have facilitated and conducted small skill-building workshops as well as large conferences.  

 

I have taught full-semester and quarter courses for graduate-level social work students covering basic clinical skills, evidence-based models (e.g., CBT, solution-focused therapy, motivational interviewing), family therapy, child mental health, attachment-theory, neurobiology and couples therapy.  

 

I have a passion for the infinite process of learning, but not just learning, but the types of connections that occur and the deep fulfillment of learning through interactions and social connections.

 

I offer a free 45-minute consult in order to tailor the training to your particular needs.  The list below is not exhaustive and I'm always open to exploring a new training topic.
