Warren's professional journey began when he received his undergraduate degree in psychology at UCLA and his Masters in Social Work at USC. His education fortified by his life experiences are what shaped his desire to become a therapist.
He started his clinical career at a community mental health agency, Long Beach Mental Health Center (LBMHC) in 2012. There he worked as a psychiatric social worker where he was trained and certified in evidenced based practices including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). Using these methods, he treated individuals who struggled with anxiety, depression, trauma and self-harming behaviors. He had the privilege of working with clients throughout the course of their treatment, giving them the tools and insight to find and live with clarity in their life.
In 2017, he joined Kaiser Permanente's Behavioral Health Department at the Los Angeles Medical Center. He came onboard as a therapist where he primarily worked with adults who struggled with transitional issues, relationship problems and stress. His work at LBMHC & Kaiser has given him the experience and expertise to continue his life's mission to improve my clients' mental health, wellness, and quality of life.
