  • Mission:
  • Casa de la Familia's (CDLF) mission is to address the mental health needs of individuals of all ages who have suffered a psychological trauma in a culturally relevant manner with dignity, compassion and mutual respect. The focus of the psychological treatment, education, and outreach we provide is to underserved and marginalized minority populations.

  • Overview:
  • The primary beneficiaries of the services provided by Casa de la Familia (CDLF) are underrepresented and underserved minority populations. Though our impact positively affects the collective well-being of society, we directly extend our efforts throughout the counties of Orange and Los Angeles, as well as portions of those neighboring counties. With a deserving emphasis on well-organized educational briefs and outreach programs, CDLF is able to connect with their intended demographic. This process is further made feasible through the agencies administration of multicultural and bilingual psychological services, the latter of which allows CDLF to effectively relate with the Latino community in a respective fashion.

    CDLF’s clinical director, Dr. Ana Nogales, is a highly respected individual well-recognized for her active efforts of social betterment within the Latino communities. She vigorously advocates for the proliferation of knowledge with regard to proper mental health and available resources. Her arduous efforts, substantial expertise, and incalculable experience as a psychologist have allowed her to gain the trust of Latino communities throughout Southern California. Dr. Nogales oversees all aspects of grant programs at CDLF, and she is an indispensable element to the effective day-to-day implementation of the agency’s projects.

    Moreover, Dr. Nogales’ decisions are supported, mandated, and implemented by the CDLF Board of Directors, a congregation of individuals with a significant amount of in-field and hands-on experience in working with the relevant demographic. These highly qualified men and women employ extensive knowledge with regard to past social challenges, present plaguing issues, and anticipated future obstacles concerning the Latino community, to properly achieve the intended outcome of a healthier society. Their endeavors are made possible through the application of the expertise they have acquired throughout many years of dedicated and devoted efforts.

    Though the entirety of CDLF’s staff is not bilingual, the vast majority of its therapists are. They are caring and affectionate professionals with extensive experience concerning the Latino community. Our highly trained selection of therapists specialize in the treatment of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, and depressive disorders in children, adolescents, adults, and senior citizens. Furthermore, they are delicately trained to treat and meet the needs of victims of human trafficking. The agency endeavors to provide crisis intervention and long-term individual and family therapy to properly aid individuals who suffer from the above mentioned conditions as well as many others. On an as-needed basis, CDLF provides in-home services as the lack of transportation and childcare have often been identified by victims as reasons for not seeking mental health services.

  • History:
  • CDLF has dedicated its efforts to the promulgation of mental health benefits to individuals in Southern California via psycho-educational programs for two decades. The structure of our outreach programs has enabled our staff to provide families and children in need with the mental health aid they require. Over the years, CDLF has gained substantial knowledge of the various underlying socioeconomic barriers that impede individuals in need from attaining high quality, low cost mental health and advocacy services. Among such barriers is the stigmatization of mental health services that exists in most underrepresented populations. This stigma subsequently contributes to the disproportionate distribution of mental health services in marginalized communities. CDLF, however, has focused its efforts to overcome such social challenges by advancing innovative and educational approaches towards eliminating such stigmas. Examples of such efforts are CDLF's psychoeducational workshops on the realities of mental health, and the presentation of the play, "De Sabios y Locos, Todos Tenemos un Poco," which was written by CDLF's founder and clinical director, Dr. Ana Nogales. Moreover, under the directives of Dr. Nogales, we have been successful in alleviating the disparity in mental health services for underserved and underrepresented populations throughout the Southern California region, in particular, those of Hispanic/Latino descent.
