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
