OWNER, SUPERVISOR & PRACTIONER
Child expert and Licensed Marriage Family Therapist, Devin Price, has practiced psychotherapy for nearly a decade.
Most recently, she served as Site Director (both in Hawaii and San Diego) for FOCUS (Families OverComing Under Stress), a UCLA/BUMED (Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery) program serving military families. Her primary duties were to provide individual (children ages 3-18) and group treatment from a trauma informed lens via a strength based approach. Additionally she engaged in over a hundred public speaking engagements during which she provided psycho-education to families, service providers, teachers, and military personnel on methods for recognizing early signs of stress, in order to prevent the future need for a higher level of care. During her tenure with FOCUS, Ms. Price wrote and developed more than a dozen interventions and curriculums; eg: Mindfulness for Children, Emotional Regulation for Early Childhood, Stress Reduction for the Caregiver; Communication Tools for Couples; Problem Solving for the Family Unit.
Responsibilities at The Child and Family Guidance Center (Northridge, CA) centered around direct clinical intervention to at-risk children and teens suffering from a wide range of diagnoses, including: Learning Disabilities; Anxiety; Mood Disorders; Autism; and Attention Deficit Disorders. Ms. Price also served as Coordinator for CalWORKs (California Work Opportunity & Responsibility to Kids), where she provided skill-based treatment to parents in order to diminish mental health barriers impeding their ability to return to work.
In her Practicum Work at Peace Over Violence, (formerly known as Los Angeles Commission on Assaults Against Women), Ms. Price provided trauma-informed intervention to survivors of domestic violence and rape. She completed her practicum at Peace Over Violence.
Other accomplishments include her work as Associate Producer for PBS Documentary “Lasting Love” featuring John Gottman and work as Clinical Consultant for internationally award winning (including NAMI) film “Part Time Fabulous”.
